in your interchange application root is a file:
this page has an 'if' statement which checks the amount of people that would
be receiving the mailing and if it's more than your setting of
MAILING_MAX_DIRECT (and if this is not set, more than 50) then it will show
you the message "(too many matches to send directly)"
If you are using the IC admin you can change the MAILING_MAX_DIRECT this
- login to admin
- click 'Administration' tab
- click 'Mailings'
- click 'MAILINGS_MAX_DIRECT'
- change the preference value
- click 'Ok'
- click 'Apply changes'
that should do the trick .. And if the variable does not exist you will have
to create it.
I have never used the mailing functionality of IC, and if you haven't either
I'd suggest you first do some tests instead of attempting a first mailing
blast to thousands of people.
-----Thanks Gert,I see that we just allowed up to 50, but the problem is we
cannot change the setting becausewe don't have 'Mailings' in our
'Administration' tab.How do I create 'Mailings' in our 'Administration'
tab.Is this 'Mailings' called a variable? Is it easy to create the
variable? Can anybody create this variable including a person who does not
know about programming?Thank You.L&B Creations
