NECRO MAIL STOP

Version 1.0 _ Vanilla 3.0+Plugin
Toplevel domains running Vanillaforums are in danger to be punished with penalties by Gmail and other browser based email services. How is that? Vanillaforums OS sends out notification emails triggered by replies, mentions, wall posts or other user related interactions of your community. Inactive users usually not open those emails or – worse – actively mark them as spam. This leads browser based email providers to weight them as less relevant or fraudulent causing these emails to end up in spam folders as well as re-weighting the relevance of your domain for all users of their service.

Necro Mail Stop allows you to define the number of days inactive users will receive notifications emails.
  • Keep your spam record healthy.
