Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I got asked a good question just now, is it possible to store emails sent from the admin area somehow, I am using 2.3.1

 

Kind regards

sure ... save them in a new table in your database. you can then get the info from the database directly if you need to look up something or create a nice frontend for it similar to the newsletter manager tool ....

Hi Monika

 

Thank you for the reply, would you be able to help me and guide me through setting up a new database table and them getting the info from the database table to display in the admin area

 

Sorry only as not as confident to do it by myself

Hi Monika

 

I think I have found another way of doing it rather than storing the emails, I have done it this way and hopefully will work

 

I added the following to admin/mail.php

 

# simple mod to send CC
	 $mimemessage->send('Your Name Here', 'address_where_you_want_it_to_go', '', $from, $subject);

 

I found it in another post here - http://www.oscommerce.com/forums/topic/192419-save-copy-of-sent-email/

sure - that's another solution to keep the information, it just will not be listed with your customer in admin... definitely faster though!

Here is a guide as to what you need to do, as you can see it is a few hours work.

 

Create table using phpmyadmin, needs at least 3 fields

email_id (auto increment)

customer_id

Email_text

 

maybe 2 more

 

sent_to

copied to

 

Add an entry in /admin/includes/datbase_tables.php

 

Add a line to each script/php file that writes an email that insert a record containing the data

 

Write a script to enable emails sent to be displayed and link it to customers page in admin.

 

Cheers
