General Help & How-To / Cron confusion... resume/dailymail?
« on: May 31, 2008, 07:10:01 am »
It's a completely seperate cron job and they do totally seperate things, keep both of them.

So to answer your question, YES just add the resume to run every 5, 10 or 15 minutes or so.  And keep your dailymail to run at 7pm or whenever.

Dean or anyone else with php/mysql expertise want to help me with this?

Customization, Integration / List Purge / Permission Pass
« on: April 30, 2008, 08:36:31 am »
I'm getting ready to move to a new server and want to make sure my list is squeaky clean.

I want to do a list purge / permission pass...   Here's what I want to do:

I want to email everyone letting them know I will be doing a list purge of everyone who hasn't clicked a link from my mailings in the past 6-12 months or so and provide a LM Tracking link for them to click.

I then want to later purge ( actually move to a new list ) all the folks on list 1 who haven't clicked any of my tracking links that I have in LM.

So basically:  Any user on List 1 who has not clicked on any of my tracking links needs moved to say list 26 or whatever list.  They should keep all of their info including IP, Ref URL, and status ( active, bounced ) etc, etc.

Dean,  I know this would take a special page and a bit of coding, could you help me with it?  I'd be happy to pay a small fee for doing this.  Please let me know asap as I need to move on this today!

I believe you could do this now by using the !usersuid code and then doing:!usersuid

You then just have to copy the rem.php, admin.php and config.php files into each domains web space...

Dean correct me if that won't work... as I have not tested it, but I did think of doing something similar a while back.

It's right there..  make that user exist and you'll probably be ok.

If I had to guess, I'd say your users are of the "removed" status, so if you search for them, do so and select "removed", you'll probably find them.

I'd say the selection you setup for whatever reason didn't take into consideration this status and just mailed to them all...

I highly doubt that one mailing to someone would constitute any legal proceedings against you, honestly... they are probably just blowing smoke.  Just my .02 and hope.

Just curious as to who you are using for Dedicated servers right now...  I am considering moving away from my own T1 line and getting a dedicated machine to run my 150K daily list to...

Let me know, thanks.

General Help & How-To / Removing an address from all lists at once

Yea as Dean stated above that server shouldn't choke at 2-3k... unless maybe there is a bandwidth limit being hit and that's why it won't serve up sites?

Are you SSH'd onto the box while it's mailing to check it's load?

I guess we ( or I ) should first ask what operating system the box is running?

It definitely needs optimized starting with the MTA, then probably MySql and then maybe Httpd ( probably not much to do here if anything ).

Find out what MTA, make the necessary tweaks and then search here for the MySql optimizations as well.

Good luck

Ha well hello, I didn't realize that, small world I guess.  I've been an LMP user for YEARS... since 2002 I believe.  Am fairly active in here, try to help when I can.

If mail with delays work cool, if not maybe a dedicated server is the way to go.

As for the code goes, I've just been learning PHP and just happened to notice that.  I try to code for max performance when I can.

Anyway, I'm sure Dean will answer on how to make that remove from all lists.

This has nothing to do with your question, but this line in your code isn't needed...
Code: [Select]
$emailaddr = $_POST['email']; //Let's call it emailaddr

When you call the remove URL, just use the $_POST['email'] variable... like:
Code: [Select]
$fp=fopen("$_POST['email']&dodel=1",'r'); //removes it from List #50

Never said I was a great PHP programmer, but that may save like .00000001ms of execution each time... lol... :lol:

I do this on my order approved/complete page by calling this php/curl function:

Code: [Select]
="list=19&email=" $_SESSION['x_Email'] . "&fname=" $_SESSION['x_First_Name'] .
"&lname=" $_SESSION['x_Last_Name'] . "&seq=1&del=1";

$buffer curl_exec($ch);

On the left navigation buttons in your ListMail site, goto "User Selection".

Select the two lists and filter duplicates.

I don't use user selections much, can't this be done with that?

General Help & How-To / My bounce.php script is corrupted
« on: September 28, 2007, 09:21:28 am »
Comcast is absolutely horrible for blocking your wanted emails for you without you knowing it.

I constantly have customers that purchase from me using a comcast address and I go to send them their login details and it comes back as blocked.  

I continually go through their supposed unblock process, but it happens again later...  

I second a change...

Ok you've pushed me in a better direction...

Here's what I've done...  In the users file instead of just having data, I now set everything as a variable like:
Code: [Select]
<?php //Set Affiliates Variables
$aff_name="Michael Rogers";
// Don't Edit below this
IF (isset($_get['email_lead'])) {
$subj="New FCE Lead";
$msg="You have a new lead:\n\n
Name: " 
$_GET['fname'] . " " $_GET['lname'] .
"\nEmail: " $_GET['email'] .
"\nPhone: " $_GET['phone'];
$header ="From: FCE <>\n";
$header .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\n";
} else {
$aff_name "<br>" $aff_phone "<br>" $aff_email "<br><br>" $aff_tracking; }

Now when called normally from the site it simply displays the affiliates information to the potential customer.

In signup-xtra.php I now simply call the above file setting email_user=1 which then just emails the affiliate giving them the lead info.  I use curl like this:  
Code: [Select]
$ch curl_init();
curl_setopt($chCURLOPT_URL,"" $user1 ".php?email_lead=1&fname=" $fname "&lname=" $lname "&email=" $email "&phone=" $user2);
ob_start();      // prevent any output
curl_exec ($ch); // execute the curl command
ob_end_clean();  // stop preventing output
curl_close ($ch);

This seems to work real good for what I need at the moment.  If I start to get a lot of users I may move them to a Listmail DB then go from there.

Thanks for your help/guidance.
