This module allows the core contact module to send emails to site users and site roles.
The idea of this module is that you may want site visitors or basic users to contact a site admin (and you don't want to re-enter that admin's address), or all users of particular administrative role (such as the accounts managers).
The module works by allowing fake email addresses in the contact form settings, of the following format:
- user-n@here for user id n
- role-n@here for role id n (find a role's id on the role edit page's url)
When the contact form is submitted, these are replaced with the real email addresses from user profiles.
See also the Mass Contact module, which does the same sort of thing but from the opposite side: Mass Contact is geared to mails 'out' from admins; this module is geared towards mails 'in' from the public. Combine both to allow both basic users (with this module) and admins (with mass contact) to contact users by role in different scenarios.
Using fake emails is a little hacky, but suffices my own needs. I will gladly accept patches for something more elegant.
Updating this module to Drupal 6 is very low on my list of priorities right now. Filing an issue will jog me a little but a patch would be best of all ;)
