I am using Drupal 7, and I want to send email to registered users who have not logged in to the site since 30 days; for example, an email saying:

Hello user, you are not login since 30 days.

Is there any way?

You can use the Rules module to do this.

Make a rule that that is triggered when a user logs in. Make this rule schedule sending this e-mail in 30 days. Let the identifier of the task be something like 30-days reminder for [account:uid]. This way, if the user logs in within the next 30 days, the scheduled task will be overwritten - pushing the 30 days e-mail.

Make sure to activate the Rules Scheduler module.


Take a look at the User Stats module, it might be something that could work for you. From the module's project page:

Provides commonly requested user statistics for themers, IP address tracking and Views integration. Statistics are:

  • Days registered
  • Join date Days since last login
  • Days since last post

etc and then, you can use cronjob to send email.


Another way would be to implement hook_cron. like this:

function yourmodulename_cron() {
  $users = database query to get users that have not logged on in the last 30 days
  $queue = DrupalQueue::get('send_maillast30days');
  foreach ($users as $user) {

Also you will have to implement a queue using hook_cron_queue_info as shown here:

function yourmodulename_cron_queue_info() {
  $queues['send_maillast30days'] = array(
    'worker callback' => 'yourmodulename_send_email30days',
    'time' => 60,
  return $queues;

you will also have to implement "yourmodulename_send_email30days" function: i.e

function yourmodulename_send_email30days($user) {
  //use drupal_mail function to send the mail (see http://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/includes%21mail.inc/function/drupal_mail/7)

You can try the Inactive user module:

Inactive user

The inactive_user module provides Drupal administrators with a way to automatically manage inactive user accounts. This module has two goals: to help keep users coming back to your site by reminding them when they've been away for a configurable period of time, and to cleanup unused accounts.

  • Inactive_user has 0 documentation, and does nothing.

  • inactive_user is unmaintained and has some serious bugs (like sending notifications to blocked users)
