New SMTP server

Postby joepal » Fri Oct 19, 2018 11:35 am

I finally gave up on using gmail for delivering mail produced by the forum (registration links, notifications...). Google randomly locks the account, then unlocks it on my request, to then just lock it again a few days later. I haven't got any explanation as to why this happens now, after years of having used the same setup.

For now we're instead using MailGun. This has the benefit that mail get sent in a structured manner, but the downside that the mail might become spam classed or outright blocked. This since mail are sent from a shared IP, which might become blocked due to spammers having sent via that same IP.

Anway, if you don't get notifications as expected, check your spam folders.

It's possible a better solution will be needed in the longer run, but this will have to do for now.
