WireMail Mailgun

Recommended Posts

Hi Pierre-Luc

Does this Module with an unverified MailGun domain?

IE where a domain hasn't had any MailGun DNS changes and has simply been added to the MailGun Control panel as a domain?

I'm just testing it with PW 3 and am wondering why it's not working. I've identified and fixed a previous VPS issue.

@Peter Knight are you seeing anything in the Mailgun logs in your PW admin panel?

Edit: If you can, could you post a pastebin of your /site/assets/logs/mailgun.txt. Either here or send me a PM.

Hi Pierre-Luc,

First of all the module is working great for me at the moment. I haven't pushed it to hard yet but has done everything I've asked of it so far.

I have hit a small issue with mailgun and their complaint system and API. 

If people didn't know. If an email recipient accidentally(or on purpose) clicks the "junk" mail button it sends a complaint to Mailgun and they then block you from sending mail to that address, unless you clear/delete the complaint through the API.

As I'm somewhat new to web development, it's hard for me to understand how to even get started.

I was wondering if you or anyone had plans to add a way to administer the complaints from this module? or to check for complaints and delete any that are there before sending the email?

Cheers

@ Clarkey1891

Have you had any issues with MailGun's reports dashboard? I notice that although my mails are sending, the stats dashboard doesn't log this. Possibly it's because I'm using an unverified domain (no DNS records have been updated) but wondered if yours was working ?

I'll have to look into Mailgun's webhooks API, and see if it's possible to get incoming notices from this.

The stats sometimes take some time to update, but never really long. If you really want to see what's going on, the Logs tab on Mailgun is much more efficient and is pretty much instant.

I would really recommend that you do set your SPF and DKIM, as there are a bunch of penalties on accounts who don't.. https://documentation.mailgun.com/quickstart-sending.html#verify-your-domain

@ Peter Knight

sorry Peter I'm not getting any issues with the reports but I've also completed the verification process on the domain.

@ Pierre-Luc

Thanks, anything would be a great help

@Pierre-Luc

thanks for this module, everything seems to be working well and i greatly appreciate all the time you put into it; Mailgun is great, and i can see myself using it a lot in the future for transactional emails in processwire. :)

My only issues are probably more about adjusting from Mandrill to Mailgun, i do like the Mandrill interface in terms of seeing the outbound activity list, sender, status, subject, view content etc; it's a bit more user friendly; also, this may be how i have it configured but the from address on mailgun shows a "sent by " and then a long email address like person@mg.domain.com ; i know i'm going to get some complaints from clients if that is something that can't be changed, and they may just prefer paying the $10/month mailchimp minimum plan to carry on with Mandrill..

My pleasure!

The sent by line usually shows when your DKIM / SPF isn't set, make sure you do.

ok thanks - i followed their recommendation of the mg subdomain but i guess i need to now add all of the sending domains and dkim records for those domains, at least that's how it is with Mandrill...

Well you don't really need to have specific email domains unless you expect to have incoming emails through Mailgun. If your main domain has MX records you can just have SPF and DKIM in your TXT entries.

You just need to make sure your outgoing email uses the same domain as the one which is set in your email's "from". When on gmail/gapps with a custom domain for example, it's good to test reception on another domain since Google doesn't like being sent email to an email address "owned" by its own servers but not originating from it and will usually display the originating server as a security measure. It won't generally show on addresses on other domains. The reason it is that way is to prevent address spoofing, since the way email is architected, you can send any email from any server using any email address and nobody would know. As you understand that could have pretty bad consequences in different scenarios, which is why Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) exist. It might feel annoying and troublesome but in reality it's just good practice. Email is complicated. ;)

right i just checked and i do have all of the spf and dkim records correctly done but i think you are saying that i should not use the mg subdomain and change that to the normal domain so i don't get those sent by things..  i wonder if you can have both mailgun and mandrill txt records

Yep, just change it to the normal domain and it'll show correctly as long as the From address is the same as the MG domain.

What I do worry about, and it is a lesser issue you only run into when switching between WireMail modules, is that they don't all have the same functions or parameters so it's just something to check when you switch. A simple bit of search and replace in your favourite editor and you're sorted though :)

sure enough, it works like you said! no more 'sent by'...!

good point though about wiremail - i currently use horst's wiremail module and am extensively using the functions for attachments and probably more;

i wonder if when i get to the stage of switching that site over to mailgun, if i'll need to use the SMTP connection option, instead of API..

Hi Luc,

I am not sure if you can help me with this but I'll try anyway...I am using this module to send transaction email for my online store but I am not sure if I got this setup correctly. So my issue is: the email from mailgun is sent straight to spam and after looking into it, there is no mailed-by/sent-by (which I reckon is the issue it went to spam) in the email header. However when I tested it manually using the curl command (as per example here: https://documentation.mailgun.com/quickstart-sending.html#send-via-smtp) on the server (digital ocean) server, it went ok (not being sent to spam).

I also notice when using the curl command the IP address from which the email was sent is Mailgun's IP Address (refer to the details below) but when using this module the IP address is the IP address of the digital ocean ubuntu box. I am not sure which one it should be, but I reckon it should be the IP address of the box and not the mailgun API IP address?

I know this is probably not related to your module direcly but if you can help and potentially point me to the right direction, I really appreciate it. Thank you in advanced!

Mailgun Details

State: Active
IP Address: 209.61.151.224
SMTP Hostname: smtp.mailgun.org
API Base URL: https://api.mailgun.net/v3/v2.weareheim.co

Hmm hard to say, but do you see any error message either on the module's log or on Mailgun itself?

What are your current options set to?

Also are your SPF and DKIM set?

Hi Luc,

I know what the issue is but I dont know how to solve it and it probably has nothing to do with your module anyway. The issue is the module sends the email using the underlying MTA in my linux box in this case sendmail. Sendmail somehow use the box IP address instead of the IP address of the domain assigned in my mailgun account. I dont really understand how to force sendmail to use mailgun ip address and have been trying here and there but no luck whatsoever.

So, in the end I decided to install exim4 and use smtp settings which works ok. Maybe, I play around with it in the future to resolve this. If anyone here has unix experience with sendmail can point to the direction, really appreciate it. :D

Hmmm....interesting,

So I don't need to install sendmail/exim/postfix etc? I tried that before but no luck....maybe I have a look again closely

but I thought send() method of wireMail is looking for MTA? no?

are we using wireMail or WireMail? this is completely different question though

Hi Luc,

I find out what the issue is, I installed your module alongside with WireMail for css inline etc. So, I uninstalled that module and this works like a charm! Thank you!

Cheers

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      Please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about (open spoiler):
      (Please note: these screenshots are from an early development state of SnipWire. To see actual screens please have a look at later posts below!)

      This module is inspired by and similar to the Template Stubs module. The author of that module has not been active in the PW community for several years now and parts of the code for that module didn't make sense to me, so I decided to create my own module. Auto Template Stubs has only been tested with PhpStorm because that is the IDE that I use.
      Auto Template Stubs
      Automatically creates stub files for templates when fields or fieldgroups are saved.
      Stub files are useful if you are using an IDE (e.g. PhpStorm) that provides code assistance - the stub files let the IDE know what fields exist in each template and what data type each field returns. Depending on your IDE's features you get benefits such as code completion for field names as you type, type inference, inspection, documentation, etc.
      Installation
      Install the Auto Template Stubs module.
      Configuration
      You can change the class name prefix setting in the module config if you like. It's good to use a class name prefix because it reduces the chance that the class name will clash with an existing class name.
      The directory path used to store the stub files is configurable.
      There is a checkbox to manually trigger the regeneration of all stub files if needed.
      Usage
      Add a line near the top of each of your template files to tell your IDE what stub class name to associate with the $page variable within the template file. For example, with the default class name prefix you would add the following line at the top of the home.php template file:
      /** @var tpl_home $page */ Now enjoy code completion, etc, in your IDE.

      Adding data types for non-core Fieldtype modules
      The module includes the data types returned by all the core Fieldtype modules. If you want to add data types returned by one or more non-core Fieldtype modules then you can hook the AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes() method. For example, in /site/ready.php:
      // Add data types for some non-core Fieldtype modules $wire->addHookAfter('AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes', function(HookEvent $event) { $extra_types = [ 'FieldtypeDecimal' => 'string', 'FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker' => 'LeafletMapMarker', 'FieldtypeRepeaterMatrix' => 'RepeaterMatrixPageArray', 'FieldtypeTable' => 'TableRows', ]; $event->return = $event->return + $extra_types; }); Credits
      Inspired by and much credit to the Template Stubs module by mindplay.dk.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.60
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      ⚠️ NOTICE: 1.5.60 is an important security patch-release for an XSS vulnerability discovered by @phlp. It's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that all Jumplinks users update to the latest version as soon as possible.
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy! 🙂
