How do I email either all users or a group of users in Confluence?

Okay, maybe I am just completely blind or ignorant or both, but as an administrator, how do I email either all users with active accounts in the tool, or at least be able to send emails out to entire groups? It was so easy to find and use in Jira, why can't I find it in Confluence?

 

Thanks!

Put the content on a page or blog post

Share the page to user or group

If you don't see the Share button you've not specified a mail server so Confluence has no way to notify people

Recipients get emails and notices in the notifications tray.

Martin, Thank you for your response. I JUST figured that out. I am in such an administrator mode that I never even thought to look for controls on the page. Question though! What about for administrators? Is there a way to generate an "all users" email? I guess I could just build a private space and add all users to it and then just "notify" the space when I need to send a message for server downtimes and such? Any other tricks or obvious things I am missing that you can suggest? Thanks, Jason

I'd be interested in knowing how to do this too, especially for planned site maintenance. Thanks, Carol

I have the same problem. We have a server downtime tomorrow. I search for a "send email to all users" funtiction, like in JIRA. 

There is a bug where you cannot share with internal confluence group such as confluence-user.

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-33616

 

Just as an update, it looks like at some point in our instance upgrading and add-on upgrading, community bubbles plug-in has added a send email feature to the admin screen. We have tried on multiple occasions to use this, but it doesn't always work. Sometimes it errors out and may even crash the instance, and sometimes it works. It could be our exchange server though . I have not investigated fully. Just a heads up.

May sound awkward, but what I do is send an email to confluence user via Jira. Basically since I use the LDAP link, I have my confluence user group available in Jira, but without any right. I can than go in Send Email tab and select the confluence user group.
