As this is an ongoing process, we'll use a wiki page to coordinate efforts. Please see: ((microformats)).

GroupMail
Project to perform many of the functions of CRM using as many existing Tiki features as possible (dev notes).

Send direct message via tiki-user_information.php
The ((doc:Inter-User Messages)) system is quite nice.

However, it means:
1- That users have duplicate mailboxes
2- And the recipient can't just click reply

On dev.tikiwiki.org, this is not so nice because people already have an internal tiki mailbox on tikiwiki.org

So, let's think about an additional/modified feature called "direct message" or "direct mail".

This would simulate a regular email. (let's plan ahead that this should be able to send other types of messages (jabber, sms, etc.)

The headers could be:
"from" is Full Name ({$Username}) {senderemail}
"to" is Full Name ({$Username}) {recipientemail}
"bcc" to {senderemail} (So we have a trace of what we sent)

In case some spammers get a hold of it, let's have something like this at the bottom:
This message was sent via {$name of site}


Not sure if this should be done with the ((doc:webmail)) feature, or maybe as an option of ((doc:Inter-User Messages))

See how MediaWiki does it for a good example:

SQL error saving a Contact
tracker item
tiki_contact doesn't "shared" fields correctly.
'Shared' contacts don't shared the field names. If userA creates an entry with a 'custom' field of 'Company' as 'The Smith Company', we see this in the db:


||contactId|fieldId|value|hidden
1 | 7 |The Smith Company|0||


The problem is that other users do not 'inherit' that custom field: so other users seeing that record will see no description of the field name. Indeed, if another user chooses 'Company' from the list of fields to add, it will get a new fieldId:

||contactId | fieldId | value | hidden
1 | 7 | The Smith Company | 0
2 | 23 | Smith Industries | 0 ||

It should, especially for the predefined (semi-custom fields, like 'Company' and 'Street Address', defined in lib/webmail/contactlib.php) 'share' these values with others instead of creating new fieldId's.

Using desktop mail client (ex.: Thunderbird) to reach Tiki contacts, groups or newsletter
Tiki newsletter works well for small volumes.

But for large volumes, as with any web app, sending emails from a server can be a challenge. Risk of being flagged as spammer, high server load/difficult to throttle, limits from your web hosts (ex.: max x emails per hour), etc

A helpful alternative would be something like this:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/4883

So my Thunderbird client or desktop newsletter application (ex.: [http://gammadyne.com/mmail.htm|Gammadybe Mailer]) should be able to access the TikiWiki database to generate recipient list.



---

Another approach is to make the Tiki contacts (address book) accessible via the LDAP protocol and thus, email clients can access.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
