    @qgp9 Strange. Strange. I could not get the mailgun plugin to work for me on v0.9.4 with my own domain even.

    I also checked it at my NodeBB@0.9.4 test bench in c9.io just before. It works.


  • @rod

    Also I checked a mailgun at my NodeBB@0.9.4 test bench in c9.io with a sandbox account.

    And It works.

    Here is a my configuration, it's obvious but if you are interested on 🙂

    mailgun configuration


  • @qgp9

    It works

    I am not sure why mailgun never originally worked but now it does. It could be possible that I did not have all of my domain things established properly while I was testing with the mailgun plugin but they are now so it works as it should

    Thanks for making me take another look at this.


  • @qgp9 I am using the same config as you and I'm on v0.9.4 of NodeBB. The email is still not being sent through... Am I missing anything else? (I'm using the test email option that @julianlam suggested)

    Edit: I received it after a few minutes of typing this!

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @julian sending a test email from Settings -> Email interface always returns "Test email sent" message no matter what. There is no way to tell if there is any issue except not receiving any email in your inbox.

    • Edit : I missed second line begins with "Edit", congratulations 🙂

    Have you checked email logs at mailgun site? That is the first thing you have to see.
    I always keep it opened while email testing 🙂


  • Hey, there must be some benefit using own domain over sandbox domain. But mailgun sandbox just works fine. I have used it for a pretty long time. Indeed I still uses it on a few DigitalOcean servers.


  • @anandkumar

    Email sent from a sandbox domain shows "mailgun.us" as the sending domain, where as if you setup your particular domain it shows that as the mailing host.

    You cannot utilize inbound mail to Mailgun with a sandbox domain

    With a sandbox domain only 300 emails may be sent per day.

    Yes, those are the limitations but if one have low activity forum then that might not be ones concern! You may start with sandbox account and setup custom domain when you start hitting limits or need other features.

    Tough mailgun is a bit slow (often) in mail delivery and takes a few minutes compared to Mandrill and Amazon SES. But it worth trying.


  • @anandkumar I was just answering your question
