As we used to say in IT, "That's not a bug, that's a feature!" In this case, dropping back to the old email rules and giving us the options we used to enjoy using has been a blessing - with welcome results!
Until this week, we could only send site generated email to joined members. This week we again have a choice to send an Email To The Class to (1) everyone who has an email address, (2) only to joined members, AND (3) only to non-joined members who have an email address. Plus a few more selection options as well.
So far this week, I've heard from three other sites (and my own) who are delighted that they got unexpected joins because an email went out to non-joined members - reminding them that our web sites are here and encouraging them to come see what they've been missing.
While this change may not have been intentional, it was a welcome addition to the tools we have. And we're going to be very disappointed if these options disappear again.
