Quick Mail Adds BCC, Improves HTML Messages

Discover the latest version of Quick Mail.

Quick Mail is a WordPress plugin that sends an email with an attachment from the WordPress dashboard. Quick Mail includes options to send email to members of your site, or anyone.

I created Quick Mail to send email to WordPress users on a site, without looking up their email addresses. Quick Mail also makes it easy to share drafts of posts and pages: just paste the document source into a message.

Quick Mail was published two years ago. I use Quick Mail regularly, and try to improve it.

What’s New in Quick Mail 3.0.1?

Quick Mail cannot prevent the NSA from reading your email, but it can hide some of your recipients.

Click on “BCC” to send a blind carbon copy to additional recipients. The screen updates to display your selected option.

You cannot mix BCC and regular CC on a single message. My plugin would require a third select box, or a way to mark each recipient.

I will consider adding this feature in a future version.

Fixed in Quick Mail 3.0.1

I added the TinyMCE editor to Quick Mail 3.0.0. I determined if a message was HTML by testing if content started with a “<” or contained a WordPress shortcode.

Quick Mail 3.0.1 checks content for “</” besides shortcodes. HTML messages are now identified correctly.
