WireMail Mailgun

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.

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

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

@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

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

      This module lets you add some custom menu items to the main admin menu, and you can set the dropdown links dynamically in a hook if needed.
      Sidenote: the module config uses some repeatable/sortable rows for the child link settings, similar to the ProFields Table interface. The data gets saved as JSON in a hidden textarea field. Might be interesting to other module developers?
      Custom Admin Menus
      Adds up to three custom menu items with optional dropdowns to the main admin menu.
      The menu items can link to admin pages, front-end pages, or pages on external websites.
      The links can be set to open in a new browser tab, and child links in the dropdown can be given an icon.
      Requires ProcessWire v3.0.178 or newer.
      Screenshots
      Example of menu items

      Module config for the menus

      Link list shown when parent menu item is not given a URL

      Advanced
      Setting child menu items dynamically
      If needed you can set the child menu items dynamically using a hook.
      Example:
      $wire->addHookAfter('CustomAdminMenus::getMenuChildren', function(HookEvent $event) { // The menu number is the first argument $menu_number = $event->arguments(0); if($menu_number === 1) { $colours = $event->wire()->pages->findRaw('template=colour', ['title', 'url', 'page_icon']); $children = []; foreach($colours as $colour) { // Each child item should be an array with the following keys $children[] = [ 'icon' => $colour['page_icon'], 'label' => $colour['title'], 'url' => $colour['url'], 'newtab' => false, ]; } $event->return = $children; } }); Create multiple levels of flyout menus
      It's also possible to create multiple levels of flyout submenus using a hook.

      For each level a submenu can be defined in a "children" item. Example:
      $wire->addHookAfter('CustomAdminMenus::getMenuChildren', function(HookEvent $event) { // The menu number is the first argument $menu_number = $event->arguments(0); if($menu_number === 1) { $children = [ [ 'icon' => 'adjust', 'label' => 'One', 'url' => '/one/', 'newtab' => false, ], [ 'icon' => 'anchor', 'label' => 'Two', 'url' => '/two/', 'newtab' => false, 'children' => [ [ 'icon' => 'child', 'label' => 'Red', 'url' => '/red/', 'newtab' => false, ], [ 'icon' => 'bullhorn', 'label' => 'Green', 'url' => '/green/', 'newtab' => false, 'children' => [ [ 'icon' => 'wifi', 'label' => 'Small', 'url' => '/small/', 'newtab' => true, ], [ 'icon' => 'codepen', 'label' => 'Medium', 'url' => '/medium/', 'newtab' => false, ], [ 'icon' => 'cogs', 'label' => 'Large', 'url' => '/large/', 'newtab' => false, ], ] ], [ 'icon' => 'futbol-o', 'label' => 'Blue', 'url' => '/blue/', 'newtab' => true, ], ] ], [ 'icon' => 'hand-o-left', 'label' => 'Three', 'url' => '/three/', 'newtab' => false, ], ]; $event->return = $children; } }); Showing/hiding menus according to user role
      You can determine which menu items can be seen by a role by checking the user's role in the hook.
      For example, if a user has or lacks a role you could include different child menu items in the hook return value. Or if you want to conditionally hide a custom menu altogether you can set the return value to false. Example:
      $wire->addHookAfter('CustomAdminMenus::getMenuChildren', function(HookEvent $event) { // The menu number is the first argument $menu_number = $event->arguments(0); $user = $event->wire()->user; // For custom menu number 1... if($menu_number === 1) { // ...if user does not have some particular role... if(!$user->hasRole('foo')) { // ...do not show the menu $event->return = false; } } });

      Symprowire is a PHP MVC Framework based and built on Symfony using ProcessWire 3.x as DBAL and Service-Provider
      It acts as a Drop-In Replacement Module to handle the Request/Response outside the ProcessWire Admin. Even tough Symfony or any other mature MVC Framework could be intimidating at first, Symprowire tries to abstract Configuration and Symfony Internals away as much as possible to give you a quick start and lift the heavy work for you.
      The main Goal is to give an easy path to follow an MVC Approach during development with ProcessWire and open up the available eco-system.
      You can find the GitHub Repo and more Information here: https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire
      Documentation
      The Symprowire Wiki https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/wiki How to create a simple Blog with Symprowire https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/wiki/Symprowire-Blog-Tutorial Last Update
      16.07.2021 // RC 1 v0.6.0 centralized ProcessWire access trough out the Application by wrapping to a Service https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/releases/tag/v0.6.0-rc-1 Requirements
      PHP ^7.4 Fresh ProcessWire ^3.0.181 with a Blank Profile Composer 2 (v1 should work, not recommended) The usual Symfony Requirements Features
      Twig Dependency Injection Monolog for Symprowire Support for .env YAML Configuration Symfony Console and Console Commands Symfony Webprofiler Full ProcessWire access inside your Controller and Services Webpack Encore support Caveats
      Symfony is no small Framework and will come with a price in terms of Memory Usage and added Overhead. To give you a taste I installed Tracy Debugger alongside to compare ProcessWire profiling with the included Symfony Webprofiler

      So in a fresh install Symprowire would atleast add another 2MB of Memory usage and around 40ms in response time, should be less in production due to the added overhead of the Webprofiler in dev env
