Is it possible to add mass_mailing module to a local OpenERP 7 server?

on 10/31/13, 10:39 AM 2,229 views

I got OpenERP 7 installed on a Ubuntu Server 12.04 lts server running on a Citrix XenServer virtual Machine. Everything works just fine, including custom addons and web paths.

I just can't understand if I can add the the mass_mailing (aka Mass mAiling Campaign) module to my setup. openerp.com/apps/mass_mailing/ In the openERP website apps/modules page , such module is listed as "online" and "trunk" type module, opposed to "v 7" or "v 6" or whatever of others base modules. I tried to add to my addons folder the module I got both from: - the trunk (I guess v8) and - the saas addons branch from launchpad. ( code.launchpad.net/~openerp/openobject-addons/saas-2)

In both cases I get error when trying to access web interface. I just get "Handler not found". As soon as I delete the mass_mailing folder, everything works again.

Given that I suppose the OpenERP saas relies on v7, I suppose that the module should work. Where am I wrong? Thank for any hint that can help me understanding!

We have the very same need, any input would be very appreciated

Here a followup of the issue: stable and hosted releases are simply different.

Hosted version is an improved release of openerp and it is not publicly released. It is basically a "trunk" version vithout the bugs.

Public trunk version is usually not as reliable as the hosted version, you can not use it as a stable version as it is left behind with several blocking bugs (even if documented for "some" time).


yes you can add but if you using the trunk version of the openerp 7.0 in your system. But if you try to install into our stable version it will raise some JS bugs. At present no mass module has released for stable version of openerp7.0.

So in order to use mass mailing module it is better to download the latest trunk version and make use of it.
