Sending PMs is not an admin permission, it is a user permission. Use the Permissions mask for User-based permissions to see where your permission is blocked.

All unsolicited PMs will be ignored.

The first issue is fixed(?) so you should start a new topic if you have a second question as we prefer one subject one topic but ACP> System> mass email - the user guide is often a good place to go if you want to know how to do something for example [3.0] User guide - mass email.

Also, we have a 6 hour bump rule here, please observe it.
