WireMailSmtp

Recommended Posts

Hi guys and girls! And thanks for Processwire!

Just to give some help with Google account settings for WireMailSMTP. They are pretty well known... but Google appears to reject SMTP authentication from "non-trusted apps". There's however a solution which doesn't make Processwire "more secure" (from Google point of view) but unlocks the possibility of sending mails by WireMailSMTP using a Google account.

  1.  You need to enable 2-factor authentication for Gmail account which You want to use with WireMailSMTP.
  2. You need to generate an "app password" different from Gmail account password.
  3. This "app password" should be used as SMTP password while setting WireMailSMTP up.
  4. Bingo! No more blocking.

P.S. In my case, that Google blocking was occuring even if i tried to send a single letter per day. I'm not sending spam, just notifications for website owner/manager.

Hi there!

Got a strange WireMailSMTP behaviour. I'm sending emails via Gmail which works fine except one problem. Gmail browser client shows that emails like this:

xxxxxxxxx@gmail.com

It's obviously the quoted-printable decoding problem. Google also allows to download any message as .eml file, and here's a sample of what is inside such a file:

Both samples are parts of the same letter with some editing applied (real address changed, some inline css skipped etc.).

Is there a way to make Gmail decode such letters in a correct way? Thanks in advance!

I'm trying desperately to configure SendInBlue with this module, but I'm getting the same error: "SMTP settings did not work". Can I get more information on what does not work?

@Chris B - I also wonder if you'd be better off creating a module that works with SendInBlue's API rather than using SMTP. I would use WireMailGun as a starting point.

@dragan Thank you for your answer ! I'm waiting the return of SendInBlue. I asked if on their side everything works with these parameters. I will keep you informed.

@Adrian I would like it a lot! For the moment I am not yet advanced enough in Processwire to make this. But I will come ... and so I could contribute to the modules too 🙂

You can add some debug code into a template file and call a page with it:

    $to = array('me@example.com');
    $subject = 'Wiremail-SMTP Test ' . date('H:i:s') . ' äöü ÄÖÜ ß';

    $mail = wireMail();
    if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') {
        echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>";

    } else {

        $mail->from = '--INSERT YOUR SENDER ADDRESS HERE --'; // <--- !!!!

        $mail->to($to);
        $mail->subject($subject);
        $mail->sendSingle(true);

        $mail->body("Titel\n\ntext text TEXT text text\n");
        $mail->bodyHTML("<h1>Titel</h1><p>text text <strong>TEXT</strong> text text</p>");

        $dump = $mail->debugSend(1);
    }

So, in short, instead of using $mail->send(), use $mail->debugSend(1) to get output on a frontend testpage.

The output is PRE formatted and contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection, like this one:

Thank you @horst! I will test that. Why does not the module propose this directly in the "test" part?

Because the current test part only does the connection part, (ping the server and login), within the modules settings screen. It was written for PW 2.4 (and is backward compatible until now). I think this would be a good addition, maybe besides the current connection test.

Hello everybody,

I contacted the SendInblue technical department. Nobody can tell me why it does not work. So I chose to go through the API which makes it easier for me to send SMS and manage Hooks.

Thank you for your help 🙂

That debug code also works perfectly in the Tracy console 🙂

Hey everyone.

I've build a site with a couple of form/email functions using WireMailSmtp.

Everything worked fine in my localhost server during dev, but now when the site is online no emails are being send, and i'm getting no errors (not with TraceyDebug or the debugsend(1) method, nor the connection test in the config module).. just no email are being send. 

only thing i can maybe suspect is the problem, is that the live site is secure using https and webserver refuses login with SSL (!?? i honestly don't know if that makes sense, i'm a bit of noob when it comes to SMTP ), but disabling https doesn't fix it. And then also, i don't get exactly what the "Local Hostname" in the configuration should be!?

If anyone has any idea of what might be the problem I would be super grateful. I've scoured this thread for any relevant solutions, but so far still no emails 😞

Are you using an SMTP service to send emails through? IE PostmarkApp, MailGun, SendinGrid etc

What is the debuglog saying which server is connected, what is the servers response, what is the transfer protocol etc etc. 

the debug log from the debugsend() method should tell what happened.

Hi Horst i attached the debug log. to me it looks like it successfully connected to the smtp server drafted the email and send it... but i guess i'm missing something, so if you feel like having a look i would be very happy 🙂

I'm using the clients webmail server from their webhost service. 

Unfortunately this is probably a path to disaster these days - spam has made email painful and I think the only reliable option these days is to go with a transactional email service like MailGun, Postmark, SendInBlue etc. And be sure to spend the time to learn about and properly implement DKIM, SPF, and a DMARC policy.

I'll defer to horst on the troubleshooting of it actually sending. I am just talking about the deliverability issues you are likely to deal with. If the emails are only to site editors/staff you may be ok, but if they are being sent to site users then it's likely going to be an issue at least in my experience. Maybe others will disagree?

pfffffff... ok everyone thanks for the replies!

but i think i just found the problem.

The client hadn't filled out the subject line field in the back-end, so i was trying to send emails with no subject lines.

so i guess all the send requests got filtered by a spam filter or something, or they were just invalid. But now they are being send.

Stupid mistake, which took way too many hours to correct! But that's web development for you i guess 😛

A great module that works absolutely fine out of the box but I am not happy having the SMTP password in plain text in the database. Is there maybe a reason I am just not getting why this is necessary?

      This is a new module that provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Beta release
      Note that I consider this a Beta release. Since the module is relatively aggressive in deleting some caches, I would advise you to install in on a test environment before using it on a live site.
      Let me know if you're getting any errors, have trouble using the module or if you have suggestions for improvement!
      In particular, can someone let me know if this module causes any problems with the ProCache module? I don't own or use it, so I can't check. As far as I can tell, ProCache uses a folder inside the cache directory to cache static pages, so my module should be able to clear the ProCache site cache as well, I'd appreciate it if someone can test that for me.
      Future plans
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      This module is (yet another) way for implementing a cookie management solution.
      Of course there are several other possibilities:
      - https://processwire.com/talk/topic/22920-klaro-cookie-consent-manager/
      - https://github.com/webmanufaktur/CookieManagementBanner
      - https://github.com/johannesdachsel/cookiemonster
      - https://www.oiljs.org/
      - ... and so on ...
      In this module you can configure which kind of cookie categories you want to manage:

      You can also enable the support for respecting the Do-Not-Track (DNT) header to don't annoy users, who already decided for all their browsing experience.
      Currently there are four possible cookie groups:
      - Necessary (always enabled)
      - Statistics
      - Marketing
      - External Media
      All groups can be renamed, so feel free to use other cookie group names. I just haven't found a way to implement a "repeater like" field as configurable module field ...
      When you want to load specific scripts ( like Google Analytics, Google Maps, ...) only after the user's content to this specific category of cookies, just use the following script syntax:
      <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The type has to be "optin" to get recognized by PrivacyWire, the data-attributes are giving hints, how the script shall be loaded, if the data-category is within the cookie consents of the user. These scripts are loaded asynchronously after the user made the decision.
      If you want to give the users the possibility to change their consent, you can use the following Textformatter:
      [[privacywire-choose-cookies]] It's planned to add also other Textformatters to opt-out of specific cookie groups or delete the whole consent cookie.
      You can also add a custom link to output the banner again with a link / button with following class:
      <a href="#" class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</a> <button class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</button> This module is still in development, but we already use it on several production websites.
      You find it here: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/tree/master
      Download: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/archive/master.zip
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂

      Admin Page Tree Multiple Sorting
      ClassName: ProcessPageListMultipleSorting
      Extend the ordinary sort of children of a template in the admin page tree with multiple properties. For each template, you can define your own rule. Write each template (template-name) in a row, followed by a colon and then the additional field names for sorting.
      Example: All children of the template "blog" to be sorted in descending order according to the date of creation, then descending by modification date, and then by title. Type:
      blog: -created, -modified, title  Installation
      Copy the files for this module to /site/modules/ProcessPageListMultipleSorting/ In admin: Modules > Check for new modules. Install Module "Admin Page Tree Multible Sorting". Alternative in ProcessWire 2.4+
      Login to ProcessWire backend and go to Modules Click tab "New" and enter Module Class Name: "ProcessPageListMultipleSorting" Click "Download and Install"   Compatibility   I have currently tested the module only under PW 2.6+, but think that it works on older versions too. Maybe someone can give a feedback.     Download   PW-Repo: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-page-list-multiple-sorting/ GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/Processwire-ProcessPageListMultipleSorting     I hope someone can use the module. Have fun and best regards, David

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "https://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      Usage
      edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, an access token is kept.
       
      Download
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.
