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:

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 😛

      I am happy to present my new fieldtype FieldtypeImageFromPage. It is made up of 2 modules:
      Fieldtype Image Reference From Another Page is a Fieldtype that stores a reference to a single image from another page. The image can be selected with the associated Inputfield.
      Inputfield Select Image From Page is an Inputfield to select a single image from images on a predefined page and it's children.
      And there also is a helper module that takes care of cleanup tasks.
      This module evolved out of a discussion about my other Module FieldtypeImagePicker.  It caters for use cases where a set of images is being reused multiple times across a site. With this fieldtype these images can be administered through a chosen page. All images uploaded to that page will be available in the inputfield.
      When to use ?
      Let editors choose an image from a set of images that is being used site-wide. Ideal for images that are being re-used across the site.
      Suited for images that are used on multiple pages throughout the site (e.g. icons).
      Other than the native ProcessWire images field, the images here are not stored per page. Only references to images on another page are stored. This has several advantages:
      one central place to organize images when images change, you only have to update them in one place. All references will be updated, too. (Provided the name of the image that has changed stays the same) Features
      Images can be manipulated like native ProcessWire images (resizing, cropping etc.) Image names are fully searchable through the API Accidental image deletion is prevented. When you want to delete an image from one of the pages that hold your site-wide images, the module searches all pages that use that image. If any page contains a reference to the image you are trying to delete, deletion will be prevented. You will get an error message to help you edit those pages and remove references there before you can finally delete the image. How to install and setup
      Download and install this module like any other modules in ProcessWire Create a page in the page tree that will hold your images. This page's template must have an images field Upload some images to the page you created in step 2 Create a new field. As type choose 'Image Reference From Another Page'. Save the field. In 'Details' Tab of the field choose the page you created in step 2 Click Save button Choose the images field name for the field that holds your images (on page template from step 2) Click Save button again Choose whether you want to include child pages of page from step 2 to supply images Add the field to any template You are now ready to use the field View of the inputfield on the page edit screen:

      View of the field settings

      The module can be installed from this github repo. Some more info in the README there, too.
      In my tests it was fairly stable. After receiving your valued feedback, I will eventually add it to the modules directory.
      My ideas for further improvement:
      - add ajax loading of thumbnails
      Happy to hear your feedback!

      Although the PW backend is really intuitive, ever so often my clients need some assistance. Be it they are not so tech savvy or they are not working in the backend often.
      For those cases it is nice to make some help videos available to editors. This is what this module does.
      ProcessHelpVideos Module
      A Process module to display help videos for the ProcessWire CMS. It can be used to make help videos (screencasts) available to content editors.
      This module adds a 'Help Videos" section to the ProcessWire backend. The help videos are accessible through an automatically created page in the Admin page tree. You can add your help videos as pages in the page tree. The module adds a hidden page to the page tree that acts as parent page for the help video pages. All necessary fields and templates will be installed automatically. If there are already a CKEditor field and/or a file field for mp4 files installed in the system, the module will use those. Otherwise it will create the necessary fields. Also the necessary templates for the parent help videos page and it's children are created on module install. The module installs a permission process-helpvideos. Every user role that should have access to the help video section, needs this permission. I use the help video approach on quite a few production sites. It is stable so far and well received by site owners/editors. Up until now I installed required fields, templates and pages manually and then added the module. Now I added all this logic to the install method of the module and it should be ready to share.
      The module and further description on how to use it is available on github: https://github.com/gebeer/ProcessHelpVideos
      If you like to give it a try, I am happy to receive your comments/suggestions here.

      A module created in response to the topic here:
      Page List Select Multiple Quickly
      Modifies PageListSelectMultiple to allow you to select multiple pages without the tree closing every time you select a page.
      The screencast says it all:

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImagePicker. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from a predefined folder.
      The need for it came up because a client had a custom SVG icon set and I wanted the editors to be able to choose an icon in the page editor.
      It can also be used to offer a choice of images that are used site-wide without having to upload them to individual pages.
      There are no image manipulation methods like with the native PW image field.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImagePicker
      Kudos to @Martijn Geerts. I used his module FieldTypeSelectFile as a base to build upon.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      Hope it can be of use to someone.
      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Eventually this will go in the module directory soon, too.
