Encrypted user email address fields....

Post by kimtieuphuong » Sat Oct 20, 2018 4:07 pm

Hi All,
Already know the answer but no harm asking anyway!

I'd like to export all the user email addresses so I can plug them into MailChimp or equivalent but they're all encrypted. Just wondering is there
anyway of exporting them in ascii text format?

The email addresses are not encrypted at all.

You can export them from the database with this query (change the prefix if yours is different)

Code: Select all

SELECT user_email FROM phpbb_users WHERE user_type <> 2
