Select Tools → Mass Mail from the drop-down menu on the back-end of your Joomla! installation.
The Mass Mail screen allows Users who are members of the "Super Administrator" group to send an e-mail message to all Users who are members of a specific group.
At the top right you will see the toolbar:
The functions are:
Send Mail: Send the email and return to the main Mass Mail screen
Cancel: Go back to the main Joomla! control panel.
Parameters: Enter global Mass Mail configuration parameters.
The Mass Mail configuration parameters can be accessed by clicking Parameters on the toolbar. The parameters are:
Subject Prefix Enter a prefix to be prepended to the Subject of every mass email. This is intended to contain some site identifier - possibly the site name.
Mailbody Suffix Enter a suffix to be appended to the body of every mass email. This is intended to be used as a site signature.
Help: Open the Help Screen for Mass Mail. That is the same screen as this Help Screen.
Joomla! 1.0 did not have the option to encode recipients as BCC, nor did it have global configuration parameters.
You will use the Mass Mail when you want to send email to a large number of your site users at once. Here you will find some of the reasons for the use of this screen.
Describe other screens that rely on the presence of this function or that this function relies upon, in order to work correctly for example: a Category depends upon the presence of a Section (up) and it must be in place before a Categorised Article (down) can be created. If there are no Dependencies either up or down for the particular screen just state None but do include the section. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices. It will probably be sufficient to just list these and provide links to the Help Screens relating to the dependency.
