No. For that you would want to take a look at phpBB Digests, which will be ported to 3.1 sometime soon.

This seems to be a one-way relationship, is there a second part to it, where posts and replies to a mailing list is also sent to the forum so the relationship is bi-directional or is that on the roadmap somewhere ?

I had a brief look at https://github.com/DavidIQ/phpBB-MailingList but didn't find any TODO.txt or something which will give an outline on what you are thinking about next.

Look forward to know what the future roadmap is.

I had thought about this but didn't really bother looking into it further since the requirements I was given for this didn't include it. Now that the client has what they asked for its possible that there could be some sort of two-way communication to this. Not sure yet though. As it is right now can be considered the final product unless this two-way communication is really desired by a few users.

BBCode/HTML is stripped from outgoing messages since they are sent in plain text by phpBB. Right now there doesn't seem to be a way to override this either so that's how it has to be until the core is changed.

This extension can use for custom letters by administrator too? Users will register to mailing list, and forum administrator can send olny for them some special newsletter. (Like mass e-mail, but not for everyone only those who register at mailing list).

Hope you understand what i meant :D

It can work that way but as it is now the mailing list would receive an email about every new topic made anywhere on the forum.

I am quite interested in development of this extension, mainly in the idea here above mentioned by DavidIQ (3 monthes ago now).

Is it possible to get a point of situation about it ?

Best regards.

The idea is not really something I'm really interested in. I don't know why one would want to use the forum to do a newsletter instead of just creating one on real mail software and send it to the list.
