Re: The Return of Multiple List Sending

This feature has quite a lot of history: you had it in 2.x, removed it in 3.0, put it back in 3.1 alpha versions, but then (I think) didn't actually release it until 4.x.

I've looked through all my emails, and I can't find the discussion about removing it (neither from 3.0 nor 9.x) or what issues it might have had. The only thing I found was a brief statement about how in 4.x "preventing sending duplicate messages if an address is in multiple lists will work better than ever." I seem to recall you had a lot of trouble getting that to work properly, but I can't find the emails and I don't remember the details.

Howdy everyone, I’m working on bringing multiple list sending back, which was removed in v9 sometime in the 1800’s. You can see vestiges of what this feature was like in the (old!) docs: 

Work is on this branch: 

Differences will be quite stark from how this used to work. A draft message will be sent to any other lists by literally copying the draft to whatever other list you want to send out - and will then be sent out just like any other draft message. This will make the code changes pretty quick and simple, while also allowing each mailing list to function like itself. I can’t remember for the life of me how this used to work, and why it was removed. I look forward to perhaps re-discovering what it is that was such a problem (sigh!) 

This will also mean though, that if a subscriber is subscriber to > 1 list, and you want to send to those lists, they’ll get a duplicate of the message. 

There won’t be any global config variables that will need to be set up before this feature will be enabled.
