[SOLVED] User Managment and email

[SOLVED] User Managment and email was created by mcrone
My task: I have 400+ users to add to the CB user database and would like to delay the emails that are sent until a later time.

Questions:

1) If I write a PHP script to add the users directly to the MySQL dB, what other tables need updated at the same time to keep everything in sync for CB?

2) If, instead, I manually add each user through the Backend, is there a way to delay the automatic email until some time in the future?

I appreciate your help and find CB a great addition to my new Joomla 1.6 website.

Direct database additions of users can be dangerous. I won't even recommend what tables. Please use CB Juice to mass import users via CSV files.

2) If, instead, I manually add each user through the Backend, is there a way to delay the automatic email until some time in the future?

Only way I can think of is to edit Joomla global configuration mailing information and set it to something invalid like Send Mail with a path of "NOT-VALID" this would prevent the email function from working as of course details are invalid. Once done adding users you could change back to valid details.
