WireMail Mailgun

Recommended Posts

Started to use this module and works fine so far, thanks!

Is there a way to use the built-in WireMail in certain cases? Eg. I need to use MailGun only for newsletter emails.

Just found that I have to comment out this line to make tags work:

$tag = transliterator_transliterate('Any-Latin; Latin-ASCII; [\u0080-\u7fff] remove', $tag);

Could it be the server environment or maybe something else?

this may be a question i'd need to submit as a support ticket to mailgun, as their documentations is pretty sparse, but is it even possible to switch out the sending domain when you send a message, because my CRM app has a selectable "From" address when sending an email and that can be from one of 8 different domains. Since the mailgun api has you put in the api key for a particular domain, will it reject the email if it has a different from domain, or will it auto-detect the domain and switch to that; the difference here between this and Mandrill for example is that Mandrill doesn't require different smtp credentials for each domain...

EDIT: so i reviewed the Mailgun documentation and it does seem that you need to authenticate for the domain you are sending from; so now i wonder if i could just change my script to read the domain from the sender and then set the domain and api key for that message;

$WireMailMailgun->setApiKey( string $apiKey )

$WireMailMailgun->setDomainName( string $domainName ) :cool:

Hmm, I'm not sure to be honest! I think once you instantiate the WireMail class it will automatically call the installed module. Maybe Ryan has an idea on this..

If you run this :

echo transliterator_transliterate('Any-Latin; Latin-ASCII; [\u0080-\u7fff] remove', "YOUR TAG HERE");

in PHP in interactive mode on your host, (php -a .. then type in commands), what's the output, and what was the exact input for "your tag here".

Also do your setup satisfy both requirements >> PHP >= 5.4.0, PECL int >= 2.0.0? It's weird that it would give out an error since it succeeds checking the function exists. Also anything comes up in Logs > Mailgun ?

These are my findings - seems that intl is the culprit:

php 7.05
intl 1.1.0

PHP Warning: transliterator_transliterate(): Could not create transliterator with ID "Any-Latin; Latin-ASCII; [\u0080-\u7fff] remove" (transliterator_create: unable to open ICU transliterator with id "Any-Latin; Latin-ASCII; [\u0080-\u7fff] remove": U_INVALID_ID)

There are no related lines in mailgun log txt file.

My tags were simple words like "newsletter" or "test".

@tpr, what OS? I have the same intl version on my test box. It seems your build might be linking the wrong ICU (outdated) package.

I just added a check in the module to test if the transliterator ID was valid on a given system. https://github.com/plauclair/WireMailMailgun/releases/tag/0.4.2

Note that I am not able to replicate your environment or the issue, so please let if know if this release corrects the issue on your end.

it's CentOS 6.6 I don't have direct access to it, only through Plesk.

After the update the tags appear in the MailGun logs, thanks!

This is the first time I've used WireMail and WireMail Mailgun and I'm having a problem where mail is showing as delivered in the Mailgun logs but nothing appears in my inbox, or in spam folder. Solved: see edit below

If someone can confirm I've followed the installation and setup correctly...

1. Open account at Mailgun, choosing domain mg.mydomain.com

2. Set up TXT, CNAME and MX records for mg.mydomain.com at domain registrar, according the values provided by Mailgun. Mailgun verifies these records are set correctly.

3. Installed WireMail Mailgun module

4. Configured WireMail Mailgun module, filling out all fields. Unchecked "Disable cURL SSL Check". Default Sender Email Address: no-reply@mg.mydomain.com (does this need to be an address where there is an actual mailbox to receive replies?)

5. Tried to send test message by putting the following in a template file and viewing from frontend:

$mail = wireMail();
$mail->to('myaddress@gmail.com')->from('no-reply@mg.mydomain.com');
$mail->subject('Testing Mailgun');
$mail->body( 'Just testing.' );
$mail->send();

In the Mailgun dashboard I can see entries in the log for mg.mydomain.com like

Test delivered: no-reply@mg.mydomain.com → myaddress@gmail.com 'Testing Mailgun'

But no mail arrives to me. Mailgun does not show any bounces or errors.

The label "Test delivered" makes me wonder - is Mailgun in some sort of test mode? I'm not using the sandbox feature.

Looked for entries in /site/assets/logs/mailgun.txt but no such log exists. Is that normal?

Any help much appreciated.

Edit: I obviously should have looked more closely at the module config. Maybe this should be unchecked by default? Yeah, excuses, excuses... :)

I am not certain, however I noticed that you are including Gmail in your test.  This is a note from the Mailgun User Manual that may apply to your situation.

 Why am I not receiving an email when sending via the route with the sending address as a destination?

You’re most likely using GMail for sending your message. From GMail’s documentation (https://support.google.com/mail/troubleshooter/2935079?rd=1):

Finally, if you’re sending mail to a mailing list that you subscribe to, those messages will only appear in ‘Sent Mail.’ This behavior also occurs when sending to an email address that automatically forwards mail back to your Gmail address. To test forwarding addresses or mailing lists, use a different email address to send your message.

When a message from, say, bob@gmail.com goes through a route:

test@mailgun-domain.com -> bob@gmail.com

When this message arrives to GMail, it will have bob@gmail.com as both sender and recipient, therefore GMail will not show it.

In other words GMail does not show you messages you sent to yourself.

The other possibility is that the address had previously experienced a Hard Bounce and is on the ‘do not send’ list. Check the Bounces tab for a list of these addresses and remove the address in question if it is there.

 

Source:  https://documentation.mailgun.com/faqs.html#why-am-i-not-receiving-an-email-when-sending-via-the-route-with-the-sending-address-as-a-destination

Gmail doesn't like sending anything to the same Gmail address.  You may want to try sending your test using another provider.

Thanks, all solved now as per the edit to my post. Just needed to uncheck "Enable Test Mode" in the module config.

I'm working on converting a site from WireMailSMTP + Mandrill to using Mailgun.
In case anyone else needs to do this i'm posting the steps and snafus here. So far in adapting the existing code, the differences i have logged so far are;

1.)

 

in WireMailSMTP you have to set sendSingle(true) if you want the messages to each be sent individually, but this is the default for WireMailMailgun, so that call gets removed.

2.)
the method for adding attachments differs:

this:
$mail->attachment(string $filepath);

becomes this:
$mail->addAttachment(string $filepath);

3.)
If your site sends from different domains, then you need to switch that setting before send.
It appears to me that the API key is the same for all my domains, so I should only need to change the one setting when i send the email assuming i have already entered the API key in the WireMailMailgun module settings, then i can extract the domain of sending email address and set the domain to that (and also assuming I have all of those domains configured in Mailgun).

$domain = substr(strrchr($identity->email, "@"), 1);
$mail->setDomainName($domain);

*** This doesn't actually work because the runtime setting is not overriding the domain that is set in the ___send() options. ***

I made modifications to the module and now i have this working with my system; would probably need another setting like "match "sending domain" to "from email" domain" or something and also make the domain field optional in the module settings..

https://github.com/plauclair/WireMailMailgun/issues/7

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Additional comments and observations:

- would also be nice if an attachment() method could simply be added which aliases the other method (would save some code checks)

No. 1 is a violation of the WireMail interface, which says send() should return an integer and not a boolean. This should rather be changed in the module than in user-code.

you mean so around line 132 changing like this:

switch ($info['http_code']) {
	case 200:
	//return true; // Can't set int for number sent, since Mailgun doesn't return that data
	return 1; // this instead ?
	break;
...

At least. Better would still be to possibly return the actual number of sent emails. 

I agree but Mailgun doesn't return that info. I felt like returning true might be better since at least it's not giving you fake info. Further faking it might include counting the number of addresses in the emails array, but that feels even worse to me. 

For the other methods, I'd be more than happy if the interface was updated so we could standardize on things like attachments.

I'd like to see that, too, especially as it's probably only left out because it wasn't part of the pw native implementation. Maybe we could just have a WireMailAttachments interface for that?!

You could do

```

return count($this->getToRecipients()) + count($this->getCCRecipients()) + count($this->getBCCRecipients());

```

Well there's quite a few things lacking if you ask me, CC, BCC, attachments, batch mode on/off. I don't know if these are mail() constraints, I never use that thing. Basic things in email protocols are left out I believe because you could hack things up with the headers method, but that's far from an obvious thing especially for beginners. I don't have much preference on adding to the WireMail class, or having a supplemental interface to implement, or else. 

Personally I believe the interface specification for send should not be an int, but a true-ish or a false-ish value. Many ways of sending mail don't return numbers sent, but will tell you if it went ok or not. By the very nature of email, it could take hours/days until an email is certified as being accepted by the receiving servers, and some email servers don't even return accept/decline messages.

true/1…n should be correct return values for success, false/0 should also be correct for failure. It's just a matter of documenting it and using == instead of ===.  It's all fun insisting on integers but if we can't realistically meet those requirements it's just for show..

So after some hours of testing/research/code experiments, that yielded the modifications I made to the module as noted on GitHub, i can now send messages with the ability to switch between the sending domain and it all works. (also see edited post above).

Goodbye Mandrill! :P

@Pierre-Luc is there still no way to get feedback on success/errors when sending through the Mailgun API?

I would like to build a Lister(Pro) Action around your module and for that I would like to show results after sending. Something like $mail->getResult(); in WireMailSMTP.

EDIT: Guess I would need to use Mailgun Events for tracking emails. Right?

      This module tracks changes, additions, removals etc. of public (as in "not under admin") pages of your site. Like it's name says, it doesn't attempt to be a version control system or anything like that - just a log of what's happened.
      At the moment it's still a work in progress and will most likely be a victim of many ruthless this-won't-work-let's-try-that-instead cycles, but I believe I've nailed basic functionality well enough to post it here.. so, once again, I'll be happy to hear any comments you folks can provide
      https://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-changelog/
      https://github.com/teppokoivula/ProcessChangelog
      How does it work?
      Exactly like it's (sort of) predecessor, Process Changelog actually consists of two modules: Process Changelog and Process Changelog Hooks. Hooks module exists only to serve main module by hooking into various functions within Pages class, collecting data of performed operations, refining it and keeping up a log of events in it's own custom database table (process_changelog.) Visible part is managed by Process Changelog, which provides users a (relatively) pretty view of the contents of said log table.
      How do you use it?
      When installed this module adds new page called Changelog under Admin > Setup which provides you with a table view of collected data and basic filtering tools See attached screenshots to get a general idea about what that page should look like after a while.
      For detailed installation instructions etc. see README.md.

      ---- 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)

      Update 31.7.2019: AdminBar is now maintained by @teppo. Modules directory entry has been updated, as well as the "grab the code" link below.
      ***
      Latest screencast: http://www.screencas...73-ab3ba1fea30c
      Grab the code: https://github.com/teppokoivula/AdminBar
      ***
      I put this Adminbar thingy (from here: http://processwire.c...topic,50.0.html) to modules section and to it's own topic.
      I recorded quick and messy screencast (really, my first screencast ever) to show what I have made so far. You can see it from here: http://www.screencas...18-1bc0d49841b4
      When the modal goes off, I click on the "dark side". I make it so fast on screencast, so it might seem a little bit confusing. Current way is, that you can edit, go back to see the site (without saving anything), continue editing and save. After that you still have the edit window, but if you click "dark side" after saving, then the whole page will be reloaded and you see new edits live.
      I am not sure if that is best way: there are some strengths in this thinking, but it is probably better that after saving there shouldn't be a possibility to continue editing. It might confuse because then if you make edits, click on dark side -> *page refresh* -> You lose your edits.
      ***
      When I get my "starting module" from Ryan, I will turn this into real module. Now I had to make some little tweaks to ProcessPageEdit.module (to keep modal after form submits). These probably won't hurt anything:
      if($this->redirectUrl) $this->session->redirect($this->redirectUrl); if(!empty($_GET['modal'])) $this->session->redirect("./?id={$this->page->id}&modal=true"); // NEW LINE else $this->session->redirect("./?id={$this->page->id}");   and...
      if(!empty($_GET['modal'])) { $form->attr('action', './?id=' . $this->id . '&modal=true'); } else { $form->attr('action', './?id=' . $this->id); // OLD LINE }

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.54
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      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! :)
