OpenInviter ( is a set of utilities that allows PHP applications to access 3rd party email and social networking sites to download lists of users and to send emails or notifications to these users.  In order to use this software, you must first register at their website and receive a unique identification name and key.  Please carefully review the OpenInviter terms of service and privacy policies--Not all services are free and some data is retained.

OpenInviter is not free software.  It not released under the GPL, nor any other recognized license.  Therefore, the use of OpenInviter is unsupported by me and I make no guarantee it will work.  I do not develop, maintain, or provide support for the OpenInviter software--I simply developed a plugin for Elgg that can optionally use the OpenInviter libraries.  The methods used by OpenInviter are fragile and break easily when websites update.  Because of this, OpenInviter requires frequent  monitoring, updating, and significant effort in maintaining.
