NodeBB Sendgrid Reply-by-email Integration
I think there might be some steps/docs missing from the
- What do I do with the settings in Settings > Email ? Just ignore them?
- I'm using my primary domain with Gmail GSuite but I would also like to set up "Reply-by-email"
- Basic instructions don't seem to work out of the box (there was no setup for DNS MX records on the SendGrid side)
- Do I need to, or should I, use a subdomain for replies?
If you've been sending emails via your G Suite account, then the SendGrid emailer plugin will override those settings. The selection is thusly:
Fallback (configured mailer in Settings/Email or local sendmail mailer)
You probably cannot send emails via your G Suite and have replies handled via SendGrid.
So I'm not using G Suite to send emails for NodeBB
Generally speaking, I use GSuite with the domain axisandallies.org for Gmail and so forth but no integration with NodeBB.
I would like to configure SendGrid for reply-by-email. There is an option to have a subdomain for replies. The big issue that I'm confused about is that SendGrid never asked for me to set up MX records.
