Mass Messaging in BuddyPress, is pretty much the opposite of the alternative Mass Messaging plugin – Mass Messaging for BuddyPress by Alkaweb. What I mean by this is this; whatever Alkawebs plugin does in the back-end, Mass Messaging in BuddyPress does from the front-end. Both of these plugins allow site admin to send mass messages to all, or groups of users in BuddyPress. What Mass Messaging in BuddyPress does extra, is to provide the ability to allow that privilege to other user types, and also it has the ability to track if the message has been read.

It is a sad fact that occasionally disputes arise between BuddyPress site members and the site admin is asked to step in and arbitrate. In the case of claimed abuse using private messages then ordinarily this is a difficult task as by default private messages are not visible to the site admin. The BP Messages Tool changes that, it gives site admin the ability to view the contents of messages sent between site users and as such can be of invaluable help during such disputes.
