Welcome Email – Buddypress? First Login

So I’m using the excellent Welcome Pack to redirect users the first time the login to their profile page. Now, I want to also kick off an HTML email to them welcoming them to the site and giving them suggestions to visit parts of the site and stuff.

I’ll be the first to admit, my PHP-Foo is not strong (yet) — but I’m learning. I am figuring there’s a way to sort of latch on to that process of redirection to kick off some sort of email thing.

Am I heading down the right road? Anyone know a better way? Thanks!

    Greetings powerhouse,

    Perhaps Automessage plugin will serve the purpose that you seek?

    The idea of kicking off an HTML email is great, with the exception of those that do not have this setting enabled in their email clients or the many folks using a web mail service that will not render the HTML version for them – in these cases all they will see and interpret as a bunch of garbage on their screens, and then the delete action is a certainty.

    Therefore if you go HTML you need to go with a text version too so this issue is not taking place.

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe
