a question is never stupid so dont worry about that...im always asking many questions on here :)

Im assuming you mean something like a newsletter. on the given page you would create a recordset of all users (perhaps filter them but a int column in your database for all members who have opted in to receive emails). then you would use Universal Email and when you come to the options for that you would click on the TO button and select the recordset thats associated with the users table. I would suggest giving it a few seconds delay to help the hosting server deal with the emails being sent.

If this is the type of thing you want I be happy to give a more constructive and informative step by step with screen shots.

or Im sure any one else would be nice enough to help :)

use Universal Email for this.


create a page with a form on it. the form will only need to have one input box for you to enter the email address you want to send the message to, and a submit button.

Then apply universal email (WebAssist -> Create Email Message). For the from address, enter your email address. for the To address, click the lightning bolt icon and select the email address form element.

for the body, make sure the Create File For the Email option is _not_ checked. Then click the DW Edit button, and design the email body using Dreamweaver.

@Jason I believe he wanted to send multiple email addresses from a database of emails he has on file and send as one big mail out. I was going to help with that. Just trying to make time :)

In that case, create a recordset, and set the to address to loop through the recordset.


@chris, if you have time to put together some screen shoots, that would be fantastic.

Ok while I got a little time I just put together a few screenshots and will upload the sourcecode. its just a simple example - with the power of dynamic data you could do some really cool things with your emailer.

just make sure in the table of your database that contains your user details (name, email etc) that you have a field (of int (1) type so that it stored either a 0 or a 1, I did it this way as a user only needs to be 0 (not subscribed) or 1 (subscribed)). Once thats done then you would create the recordset in dreamweaver and filter by the newsletter value of 1. then use the universal email server behaviour. hopefully my screen shots are more then enough to go by.....
