Can admins see email addresses? ( 20:28:02 TueMar 5 2002 )

We have a situation where we need to email someone that has chosen to keep his email addy private.

Is there any way we can access that information? I've looked all over and can't find anything.

No way to directly access the e-mail address if they've chosen to keep it private, but you can e-mail the member by visiting http://bb.bbboy.net/yourboardid-email?member=Username changing "yourboardid" and "Username", naturally. :smile:

Or you can bulk mail, but select him as the only recipient - in "Edit Users".

What error message do you get? Or does it just not send? Users can stop people from certain boards bulk mailing them by putting the board ID in their "Selective Allowance" if they don't want to recieve anything from you, and it's just not turning up...

The email was sent to myself and the intended recipient, a grand total of two for bulk mail.

I never received anything.

I don't know if the other guy got it or not.

No error message, nothing.

Sorry to be such a pain.

No pain at all :smile: K, I'll do some testing on this, and see what I can find that's wrong with it. :smile:

Yup, I did a bit of testing on this earlier, but it worked fine, or seemed to. It must be only in certain situations it doesn't work, so I'm trying some different thing to get it to not work... :smile: Should have a fix for it soon though.
