Hello all,

I am trying to setup WireMailSMTP with the Gmail SMTP server, trying everything I read in this topic with no success.

The error I get that seems to say something (but I don't know what!) is =>  WireMailSmtpConfig: 534-5.7.14 <https://accounts.google.com/signin/continue?sarp=1&scc=1&plt=AKgnsbt0

The settings I am using are: (I think I entered every combination possible!)

local hostname: the site's domain (is this wrong? I don't know if it's relevant but this domain is an addon domain)

SMTP hostname: smtp.gmail.com

SMTP port: 587


SMTP user: my email from Google

SMTP password: my above email password


Am I doing something wrong?

In case using Google for SMTP is the problem (perhaps Google is or may one day, restrict use?), a new account with Postmark gives you 25,000 'credits', but more importantly they are great for transactional emails.

Ok, I signed up for a similar service. It works now, but I have a concern: Since my site's contact form receives emails from various people (the WireMail->from() value is different every time), I am asked to validate every single one before it passes. Is this the way these services work?

I choose to have the 'From' as noreply@example.com (the domain the site is on) and I ensure that domain is valid (good SPF, DKIM etc) then one validation and you're done.

I was wondering if it'll be possible to hook the ___send method to manipulate the recipient(s) and body of the mail. I was able to hook the method basically but I couldn't manage to manipulate the original data :/ 

Thanks in advance for any hints :)

use case for this: In debug mode (e.g. local or on staging) all mails should be send to a dedicated dropbox instead of the original recipient. This information should be added to the mail body instead.

Original e-mail - send to xy@domain.com

Hello XY,

thanks for your email. [...]


Manipulated e-mail - send to dropbox@developer.net

# Debug Info
# Original recipient: xy@domain.com

Hello XY,

thanks for your email. [...]

Not sure if it suits your needs or not, but TracyDebugger has a Mail Interceptor panel that intercepts all outgoing emails and instead shows all their details/content in the panel.

If not, I can look into changing the address like you want, but thought I'd mention that first just in case.

@chrizz - I am not really sure why this works - not much time to test right now, but it does.

$this->addHookBefore('WireMail::send', null, function($event) {
    $event->object->toName = 'testrecipient@gmail.com';

I would have thought it would be: $event->object->to, but doing that just adds another address. This seems to overwrite the existing one. Keep in mind I am not sure if this works with multiple recipients, but hopefully a decent start to get you going. Please let us know what you find.

PS - I put this in site/ready.php

@adrian thanks a lot for sharing this and for pointing me in the right direction!

To clear the original values you can just pass "null" to the "to" method:

Same works for cc & bcc, but to be honest, I only tested this in combination with WireMailSmtp. It might look different without WireMailSmtp (e.g. no cc/bcc)

The whole hook function looks like this and it works as expected.

$this->addHookBefore('WireMailSmtp::send', null, function($event) {
	if(!$this->config->debug) {
		// when not in debug mode do nothing
	$mail = &$event->object;

	// store orgiginal recpients
	$recipients = array(
		'to'		=> $mail->to,
		'toName'	=> $mail->toName,
		'cc'		=> $mail->cc,
		'ccName'	=> $mail->ccName,
		'bcc'		=> $mail->bcc,

	// reset all original recipients
	// add debug recepient	
	$mail->to = 'Dropbox <dropbox@my-domain.com>';
	// create debug information for mailbody
	$debug_body = '### DEBUG INFO ###<br />';
	$debug_body .= 'TO: '.implode($recipients['to'], ', ').'<br />';
	$debug_body .= 'CC: '.implode($recipients['cc'], ', ').'<br />';
	$debug_body .= 'BCC: '.implode($recipients['bcc'], ', ').'<br />';
	$debug_body .= '### / DEBUG INFO ###<br /><br />';
	// replace original mailbody
	$new_mailbody = str_replace('<body>', '<body>'.$debug_body, $mail->bodyHTML);

Hi, I have a problem with this module. Actually is a problem linked with another module FrontendUser, but considering FrontendUser is working fine if I uninstall wireMailSMTP, maybe there is a conflict somewhere...

The scenario is this: I'm trying to send an email from FrontendUser, the reset password email, but it doesn't work. If I check the logs I read:

Error in hnsmtp::send : 550-Verification failed for <processwire@www.mywebsite.it>

This is strange because all other emails sent from API or PW are delivered without any issue, and on wireMailSMTP settings page I have all my SMTP credentials set up correctly. Only this "reset password email" seems to load the default wireMailSMTP settings. Any idea what goes wrong? Thanks a lot

I'm on PW 3.0.50 - wireMailSMTP 0.2.3 - FrontednUser 0.9.3

Only thing what comes to my mind is different user rights!?

Can you somehow log user name / role for the different scenarios? (Maybe by temporarily add a log into the send function)

I think maybe this module uses the core ProcessForgotPassword module. You may need to set the config option for that module: "Email address to send messages from"

Sorry I can't add an attachment... The email is sent without attachment

$pdf = $homepage->pdf_marketing->url;
$mail = wireMail();
$numSent = $mail->send();

And the log tells me

Error in $WireMailSmtp->attachFile($filename): Not existing or not readable file: /site/assets/files/1/consigli-alimentari-fit4all.pdf

And I tried absolute URL, again same error

Error in $WireMailSmtp->attachFile($filename): Not existing or not readable file: http://www.fit4all.it/site/assets/files/1/consigli-alimentari-fit4all.pdf

The file is there, available to see even from browser.

What I am doing wrong?

THANKS @adrian ! I had to go back to the root folder, in my case "/home/accountname/public_html/site/assets/files/1/"

you need to use ->filename instead of ->url

$pdf = $homepage->pdf_marketing->filename;

Is there a way to set the reply address ?

->reply("xxx@xxx.xx") ?

In the modules config screen you can set it under "sender_reply". Also a "sender_errors_to" is available.


If you need to set it dynamically, you must go the workaround with modifying module config-settings via API. If so, you will find examples here in this thread or the forums in general.


you can use this:

$data = wire('modules')->getModuleConfigData("WireMailSmtp");

// or, regarding on scope,
$data = $modules->getModuleConfigData("WireMailSmtp");

than modify the reply adress:

$data["sender_reply"] = "you@example.com";

after modifying, you can write it back:

wire('modules')->saveModuleConfigData("WireMailSmtp", $data);

// or

$modules->saveModuleConfigData("WireMailSmtp", $data);

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      File Manager for ProcessWire is a module to manager files and folders from the CMS backend. It supports creating, deleting, renaming, packing, unpacking, uploading, downloading and editing of files and folders. The integrated code editor ACE supports highlighting of all common programming languages.

      This module is probably the most powerful module. You might destroy your processwire installation if you don't exactly know what you doing. Be careful and use it at your own risk!

      This module implements the website live chat service from tawk.to. Actually the module doesn't have to do much. It just need to inserted a few lines of JavaScript just before the closing body tag </body> on each side. However, the module offers additional options to display the widget only on certain pages.
      Create an account
      Visit https://www.tawk.to and create an account. It's free! At some point you will reach a page where you can copy the required JavaScript-code.

      Open the module settings and paste the JavaScript-code into the field as shown below. Click "Submit" and that's all.

      The settings for this module are located int the menu Modules=>Configure=>LiveChatTawkTo.

      Session Viewer is a module for ProcessWire to list session files and display session data. This module is helpful to display the session data of a specific session or to kick out a logged in user by simply delete his session file. After installation the module is available in the Setup menu.

      The following conditions must be met for the module to work properly:
      Session files
      Session data must be stored in session files, which is the default way in ProcessWire. Sessions stored in the database are not supported by this module. The path to the directory where the session files are stored must be declared in the ProcessWire configuration which is by default: site/assets/sessions.
      Serialize handler
      In order to transform session data easier back to a PHP array, the session data is stored serialized. PHP offers a way to declare a custom serialize handler. This module supports only the default serialize handlers: php, php_binary and php_serialize. WDDX was dropped in PHP 7.4.0 and is therefore not supported by this module as well as any other custom serialize handler. Which serialize handler is actually used you can find out in the module configuration which is available under Modules=>Configure=>SessionViewer.

      Session data
      The session data can be displayed in two different ways. PHP's default output for arrays print_r() or by default for this module nice_r() offered on github: https://github.com/uuf6429/nice_r. There is a setting in the module configuration if someone prefers print_r(). Apart from the better handling and overview of the folded session data the output of nice_r() looks indeed nicer.

      Repeater Easy Sort
      Adds a compact "easy-sort" mode to Repeater and Repeater Matrix, making those fields easier to sort when there are a large number of items.
      The module also enhances Repeater Matrix by allowing a colour to be set for each matrix type. This colour is used in the item headers and in the "add new" links, to help visually distinguish different matrix types in the inputfield.
      A Repeater field

      A Repeater Matrix field with custom header colours

      Easy-sort mode
      Each Repeater/Matrix item gets an double-arrow icon in the item header. Click this icon to enter easy-sort mode.
      While in easy-sort mode:
      The items will reduce in width so that more items can be shown on the screen at once. The minimum width is configurable in the field settings. Any items that were in an open state are collapsed, but when you exit easy-sort mode the previously open items will be reopened. You can drag an item left/right/up/down to sort it within the items. The item that you clicked the icon for is shown with a black background. This makes it easier to find the item you want to move in easy-sort mode. You can click an item header to open the item. An "Exit easy-sort mode" button appears at the bottom of the inputfield. Configuration
      In the field settings for Repeater and Repeater Matrix fields you can define a minimum width in pixels for items in easy-sort mode. While in easy-sort mode the items will be sized to neatly fill the available width on any screen size but will never be narrower than the width you set here.
      In the field settings for Repeater Matrix you can define a custom header colour for each matrix type using an HTML "color" type input. The default colour for this type of input is black, so when black is selected in the input it means that no custom colour will be applied to the header.
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
