Select System → Global Configuration from the drop-down menu on the Back-end of your Joomla! installation, then click the Server tab. Within the Mail Setting ensure that "Disable Mass Mail" is set to No.
How to access
Select Users → Mass Mail Users from the drop-down menu on the Back-end of your Joomla! installation. If this menu item does not appear on the Users menu follow the steps How to enable above.
Details and Message
- Mail to Child User Groups. Whether or not to send the Email to members of all child groups of the selected group. For example, if this box is checked and the "Public" group is selected, the email would be sent to all users, since all groups are child groups of "Public".
- Send in HTML Mode. Whether or not to send the Email with headers that identify it as an HTML document. Email clients that support this will render any HTML codes.
- Send to Disabled Users. If checked, disabled users will be included when sending mail.
- Recipients as BCC. If checked, all recipients will be included as BCC entries, so none will see any of the other recipients' Email addresses. Because many mail routers treat Email without a To: entry as spam, the site email will be used for the To: entry.
- Group. Select the groups you want to send the Email to.
- Subject Enter the Subject of the Email. Try to make it as descriptive as possible. Any text entered in the Subject Prefix parameter in Options (User Options → Mass Mail) will be placed in front of the subject you enter here.
- Message. Enter the body of the Email. Any text entered in the Mailbody Suffix parameter in Options (User Options → Mass Mail) will be added to the text you enter here.
At the top left you will see the toolbar:
The functions are:
- Send email. Send the email and return to the main Mass Mail screen
- Cancel. Closes the current screen and returns to the previous screen without saving any modifications you may have made.
- Help. Opens this help screen.
- Options. Opens the Options window where settings such as default parameters can be edited.
- To just send a private message to a user, see more on how to write a Private Message to a user.

|Users Access Levels||In this screen you have the ability to look at a list of your Access Levels and sort them in different ways. You can also edit and create Access Levels.|
|Users Access Levels Edit||Access levels control which users can view which objects on your site. Objects include menu items, modules, categories, and component items (articles, contacts, and so on). Each object in the site is assigned to one access level. User groups are also assigned to each access level.
If a user is a member of a group that in turn has permission for an access level, then that user can view all objects assigned to that access level. It is important to understand that user groups can be arranged in a parent-child hierarchy. If so, then a child group has access to all access levels that the parent group has access to. So you don't need to assign a child group access to levels that its parent group already has access to.
