Mailgun for WordPress

Mô tả

Mailgun is the email automation engine trusted by over 10,000 website and application developers for sending, receiving and tracking emails. By taking advantage of Mailgun’s powerful email APIs, developers can spend more time building awesome websites and less time fighting with email servers. Mailgun supports all of the most popular languages including PHP, Ruby, Python, C# and Java.

One particularly useful feature of this plugin is that it provides you with a way to send email when the server you are on does not support SMTP or where outbound SMTP is restricted since the plug-in uses the Mailgun HTTP API for sending email by default. All you need to use the plugin is a Mailgun account. Mailgun has a free account that lets you send up to 200 emails per day, which is great for testing. Paid subscriptions are available for increased limits.

The latest version of this plugin now supports regions. Select either U.S./North America or Europe to choose the API endpoint from which you will send email.

The current version of this plugin only handles sending emails, tracking and tagging and list subscription.

  • Testing the configuration fails when using the HTTP API

Your web server may not allow outbound HTTP connections. Set Use HTTP API to “No”, and fill out the configuration options to SMTP and test again.

  • Testing the configuration fails when using SMTP

Your web server may not allow outbound SMTP connections on port 465 for secure connections or 587 for unsecured connections. Try changing Use Secure SMTP to “No” or “Yes” depending on your current configuration and testing again. If both fail, try setting Use HTTP API to “Yes” and testing again.

If you have to use SMTP and something is still going horribly wrong, enable debug mode in WordPress and also add the MG_DEBUG_SMTP constant to your wp-config.php, like so:

define( 'MG_DEBUG_SMTP', true );
  • Can this be configured globally for WordPress Multisite?

Yes, using the following constants that can be placed in wp-config.php:

MAILGUN_REGION       Type: string   Choices: 'us' or 'eu'
MAILGUN_USEAPI       Type: boolean
MAILGUN_APIKEY       Type: string
MAILGUN_DOMAIN       Type: string
MAILGUN_USERNAME     Type: string
MAILGUN_PASSWORD     Type: string
MAILGUN_SECURE       Type: boolean
MAILGUN_SECTYPE      Type: string   Choices: 'ssl' or 'tls'
MAILGUN_FROM_NAME    Type: string
MAILGUN_FROM_ADDRESS Type: string

Introduced a bug that completely broke Email

v1.15.12 broke the plugin’s ability to send Email seemingly for every single existing installation. It was immediately reported here on the support forum but it took four additional releases and almost two weeks to get the problem resolved. No official apology, either. This is unacceptable for a mission-critical service.

Stats show only 26k downloads in the past week, meaning up to half of the 60k installs are likely broken. Mistakes happen, but the utter lack of communication from a company that’s all about making communication more reliable is a real disappointment.

good plugin

good plugin, disappointed with the handling of the regions being added in august 2018 though, very unsatisfactory upgrade path for the plugin during that process, created a lot of extra work and support basically just said tough, go and resave the settings but not until after days of telling them that the plugin was not functioning correctly.

one would have thought that with an installed base of tens of thousands and given this plugin is made by mailgun the testing would have been more thorough to avoid such stuff ups.

Uncontrolled API calls

This plugin (which we found out too late is NOT the official Mailgun plugin) made thousands of unnecessary validation API calls, totally out of proportion with the traffic to our site.
This resulted in an invoice of nearly $450 from Mailgun – all because of this plugin’s crappy behaviour.
Be aware!

Basic features, no list add security

The plugin works fine to use your Mailgun account to send emails from other mail managers. But my main interest is updating Mailgun lists. The list shortcodes work but there is no security, such as Recaptcha. I find that unacceptable and so can’t use it to directly add list members from my site.
