Hi there,

For sending and receiving e-mails I use an external e-mail client/program. I can send and recieve e-mails, confirmations, etc.

But: I want to use the e-mail manager of Opencart (!)

I have tried everything :-\ The only thing I have found is this (error logs Opencart/admin)

Code: Select all

PHP Notice:  Error: Password not accepted from server! in /home/my_user_name/domains/duurzaamondergoed.nl/public_html/system/library/mail.php on line 251
Some help/advice would be great :)

I think I already know what the ´problem´ is.

I can only send e-mail to customers who have registered.

Is there a way (extension) I can send e-mail to customers who have not registered?

are you using some sort of extensions? You might wish to contact the developer then.

Yes many... for example Quick Checkout ;D

But I am getting confused. It is possible to send an e-mail to somebody who has not registered or bought something in my shop?

In this way I use Opencart as a normal e-mail client (for example Outlook).

Possible?

Since you cannot send e-mail to customers who have NOT registered, you can still establish a new Unregistered group of Customers and populate that by hand (taking care to check their newsletter box), then use Sales / Mail to select those recipients as a group and Send. If there are too many to insert manually, then you may be obligated to use newsletter or bulk mailing options of your mailserver, so as not to commit spamming. You may also be obligated to provide unregistered recipients (although also registered ones) the customary newsletter or mail opt-out link(s) at the bottom, so as to stay within bounds of law. (Odds are that you don't have a mid-ocean island country of your own, and would like to keep the local and national constabularies from arriving unless you called them yourself.)

[Edit, added:]
It will not be a good idea either to think about OC as a mail client or to use OC as a mail client.

use a newsletter mod to collect unregistered users that wants to receive mail from you: http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... on_id=9259

I thought you were talking about a broken mail function in a mod.

As a precaution, try not to install too many of your modifications or extensions at once, if they happen to do essentially same or broadly or overlappingly similar tasks.

(He seems to have begun with using an external mail client and with preference for using ONLY OC instead AS a mail client, and not to have glommed onto an extension as yet. He seems then to have used several extensions, one named, but with the same preference for using only OC instead AS a mail client. However, he now has been given two ways, by hand and by a newsletter modification, to reach unregistered recipients. I think that we've both gotten around his trying to find the right words.)
