Resend mass mailings
A frequent need for users of mass mailings is to resend one mailing that has already been sent in the past to new recipients that haven’t received yet that mail. But the problem is to know which are the applicable ones.
Odoo already includes a method in its mass mailing logic that avoids to resend the same mail 2 times for one mass mailing, and for v9, there was a trick that allows to modify the state of a mass mailing from kanban view, covering the need.
But now since v10 both status bar in form view and dragging between states in kanban are not allowed.
This module introduces a button to restart a mass mailing to draft state, allowing you to reevaluate the sending domain or list for performing again the mailing.
