    Is it yet possible to generate an email mailing list from within xF?

    I'm not sure what your point is.

    The "Only generate a list of email addresses" is optional.
    It is perfectly possible to send mass email to various groups and members, I have done it several times.

    Select the criteria on that page, compose the email, click the button at the bottom labelled "Continue..."

    No point, I thought morgan was after the location of the "Only generate a list of email addresses" that JamesBrown posted about.
    So I posted a pic :eek:

    Perhaps it would have been better to quote Morgain instead of me ;)

    Totally confused me there...

    Brogan and Brett thank you - I had not noticed that option - so much to take in for a new XF admin.
    I did look at that form in my first exploration phase. Now I look again in more detail it's a power feature.

    I note

    Email Body:

    The following placeholders will be replaced in the message: {name}, {email}, {id}.

    as useful too.

    Brogan as you say you have used it
    - can a recipient Reply to me by email on it? as it includes (one of) my email addresses?
    Or is it only one way notices?

    Recipients can reply to the email address it is sent from, which is set in Options -> Email Options.
