    Default (Snail) Mail list?

    ZC v1.50

    So I'm looking for either an Add-on or another means of downloading/creating a mailing list (Think Mail Merge file).

    Anyone ever figure out if this doable?

    That says it's for EMAIL, not regular (snail) mail.

    That will create a list - what you do with the list is up to you

    Well that didn't work.

    All it did was create a list of email address.

    It sounds like the OP is looking for a module which exports the customer's name / company name along with the mailing address (think sending a written letter or package).

    I do not know of any existing modules which fully support this export... While not officially supported on the current version of Zen Cart, you might look at Need-Snail-Mail-List?

    If not one could be written. Take a look at the code in "includes/modules/pages/address_book/header_php.php" and the function zen_address_format in "includes/functions/functions_customers.php". These two files are used internally by Zen Cart to render customer addresses for display.

    Basically you need to grab the customer's default address (or if you are looking to grab shipped orders - where they were shipped), process the address to handle "zones" such as country / state, and then export to CSV. You might also poke around the source for "Super Orders" (it has a mass export for orders)...

    I can see value in a module which allows you to export a mailing list (especially if you can add criteria... last login date... account create date... last completed order date... etc... but my schedule is currently packed.

    Where are the Zen Cart Debug Logs? Where are the HTTP 500 / Server Error Logs?

    I simply don't have the skills to do this on my own.
