Description

It would be nice if the administrator were able to email all account holders via the admin panel. This would come in handy when major changes are made, system upgrades/maintenance lies ahead, etc.

How this would work:

Go to Administration > Settings > Email Notifications
Under the Email Footer box, another box is entitled "Email All Users". Admins can type a message into this box, then click a "Send message" button. This sends the typed message to all registered users, along with the predefined email header and footer.

I agree... this would be a useful feature. It should bypass all email notification settings in the users accounts too, or at least have the option to do so.

Seems to fit the bill exactly.

This plugin seems not to work in the sense that I want to notify all users of all projects.
I have to pick a project, to which the mail is going. Even if I multiselect all projects, only the top one's users receive the mail.
Is there any other known plugin for that?

I think this should be attached to the users/groups admin interfaces.
We should be able to check groups, users or projects to email them.
Could be useful for service emails for example.

I agree with Matthew, this would be a really helpful feature, and it doesn't look like a tough one...
An implementation would be appreciated!

There is a workaround for a smaller group of users

1. Goto Administration --> Users
2. Copy the user table to Excel
3. Delete all rows other than the email row
4. Add a ; behind the email row --> Douple click the cross on the right site of the cell to copy it down until the end of the data
5. Copy the two cells to Outlook and click on "Check Names"

This works fine in our environment and does not take too long.

Anyway: I agree,that this is a good functionality.
