[Mediawiki-l] E-mail ALL users easily?

I installed this mass mailer extension in 1.8.2. In the list of  
Special Pages it shows up as <massmailer>, unlike the others which  
show up unbracketed.

Also, although I'll send a bulk mail to all users and the program  
executes and shows that it sent mail to everyone, no one receives the  
mail.

And, unfortunately, it's the only extension like that I found, which  
seems unusual.

If you figure anything out, be sure to post it!

Tim
