So I’ve configured my Member settings so people can sign up to receive a newsletter. I’ve successfully configured my DNS as explained by Mailgun’s help documents and I am able to successfully receive email from my blog.
However, the problem is that the from address is way different than what’s in the Admin Area. It should be firstname.lastname@example.org but I’m seeing that it’s email@example.com. mail.n0sec.tech is the domain I configured on Mailgun and configured my DNS for so that makes sense but why is the first part happening?
Can anybody help me? I’d like it to just be firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
It actually does the same thing. I used my gmail address and its now firstname.lastname@example.org as the sender. It does say “On Behalf of N0Sec” and if you follow the link to “N0Sec” it shows my actual gmail address but the From address in the email itself is still strange.
And now I can’t change it back to email@example.com lol.
If you head to Mailgun, in your Sending menu. At the bottom click the “Domain Settings” menu. Make sure you use the dropdown at the top left to select the correct domain name, and then get your SMTP credentials.
Then follow these instructions to set it up through SSH
Okay I’ve gone through and configured it just like you said. My user is firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ve properly configured the json and when I add the email, it works but now I have to confirm the email address. How do I do that?
Also, how would I change the user so it’s like…n0reply or email@example.com?
@benravetta It’s not the actual password. Don’t worry. This isn’t my first time posting API keys or passwords lol.
I’ll add in the from part as well. Weird that it worked without it. How do I confirm the email address to be used as a sender? Also, what would my “from” portion look like for me? Is ‘Custom Name’ something like ‘N0Sec’? And what would I put for <firstname.lastname@example.org>?
The easiest way to do all of this, is to put your email address into the box for the no reply email in the dash, then set up Mailgun with your API key in the box below that. I’m not sure why it’s asking you to confirm your email address, that hasn’t happened to me.
By the way, that email in the from field doesn’t need to exist if you don’t want any replies coming through.
