Mail people that are not members.

I have very little php knowledge and wanted to know whether it would be possible to edit the 'mail users' form (admin/mail.php) to add an email field so I can mail people that are not members.

Or is this already possible in GL?

I am going to have to say no, because if they are not members you would not have any contact information on them. they have not signed up so they are not members

But that would allow anyone to send email through your site. The spammers would love this ...

Yea, this would be bad. Since the email would be unsolicited, you would be the spammer.

Perhaps you can ask someone for a Mailing List plugin, so your friends and other visitors could choose to sign up for the newsletter without creating an account? It would send an email to the visitor for verification, plus enter a queue for you to approve (so you or anyone else can't take advantage of the plugin for spam).
