    I'm interested but one question.
    I can't send mails with a max of 100 in one hour.
    Can this add-on set the limit of xx mail per hour?

    That is not currently a feature of this add-on. It's something I could potentially add in the future though.

    Very useful addon. It addresses one of my big issues with Xenforo -- if you don't click through on a notification email -- then you may never visit that thread ever again. This will try to re-engage people that might have abandoned or forgotten about your forum.

    When I manually "run" the cron via admincp, it didn't seem to do anything (though XF says "Cron entry was run successfully."). Nothing in my mandril logs to indicate any email was sent. Hmm.

    Do you have people opted in?

    I thought, and it appears, like all users have the checkbox checked by default to get the digest. Maybe I'm missing something :)

    Did you set the option: "xm_wtd_lastVisit"?

    Yes, I have that set to 90. I'm using SMTP as mail transport method, with Mandril as my sender - does that make any difference?

    That might be too high of a setting. Depending on what you have this option, readMarkingDataLifetime, set to it could be causing it to think they don't have any unread threads.

    The add-on works by finding users that haven't been active in x days and searching their watched threads that have replies since the last time they viewed them (excluding all threads that don't have a viewing record). If you're pruning the last read data after 30 days (for example), only emailing users that haven't been active in 90 days will cause the system to never find threads due to a lack of last read data.

    I didn't think about this issue until you showed how long you're setting the inactivity threshold for.

    Doh, sorry... I confused your option with xenforo's "only send email/alerts to users active withing past x days" option. :whistle:

    Ok, for this add-on, I've had it set at 84 hours (7 days).

    I see the issue, this is my fault. I'll post a new version in a few minutes.

    Can I use Amazon SES with this add-on?

    I'm not 100% sure I understand the question. I assume you're using amazon to send emails, if that's the case then yes this will work with it. The emails go through the xenforo core so they would function the exact same way that the rest of your emails do.

    Yes, I use it for Sendy. But I guess this configuration is done in Xenforo core then. Thanks.
