This cool plugin is helpful for admins and for normal users. A comfortable AJAX interface helps to manage users, friends, external contacts, groups and messages. One can send bulk e-mail and SMS to a bunch of users or friends. You can easily search in your messages history.
Admins have more options then normal users, like delete or edit user data, block or unblock user, activate or deactivate.
SMS functions are supported. Please contact me for your use cases and special backend connections you want to have.
The instruction manual comes in form of some screenshots with comments. Please visit the projects home.

To show, that the plugin is 1.8 copatible now I lifted the version number to 1.8.
Bugs:- font and background colors in message center read area encumbered reading - FIXEDEnhancements + features:- running with Elgg 1.8 and older versions (should be run from 1.5 up to 1.8 now)
@Purus: I tested with FF, Crome & IE in actual versions. I have no IE 7 available but I try to check this in the next days with a virtual machine. I can't imagine why it should not run.
@richard: could you give more infos? browser, php version, elgg version, could you check if there is an error shown in console or in firebug? Or could you give me the url? could you check you php error log?
This is really a fantastic plugin. However, I'm running into a couple of problems with this on 22.214.171.124. The biggest problem I'm getting is when the setting "Restrict general use of the plugin to admins" is "Yes" an error about a function deprecated in 1.7 and to use isAdmin. In fact, this was a bad enough issue so that when I logged out I could not log back in until I commented out the line referencing isAdmin in your start.php. It also is not showing up on the menu bar on Evan Winslow's Facebook theme, although I understand that may not be your problem. Thanks.
BTW, why does the insert image not work without manually coding to the path using the editor here? Just thought you might know.
