problems with emails ?
Hey,

A few days ago I logged in again on this forum,
and I forgot I had used an unusual password on it,
due to the requirement of a capital,
and thought I must have made a mistake, so I hit the link on the login page to reset your password,
and entered my email address,
after which I got the usual page saying I should check my email for a message with details, etc...

Never received any email though, so I tried again 3 times, and no success,
never got an email...

Good thing I remembered my password and managed to log back in the next day...

Anywhoo I thought I'd point this out...

Hey mate,

Yeah deliverability to Gmail is something we have given up on. We use Zoho, have all proper DNS set up etc. Nothing I can do.

RE: problems with emails ?
I owned the luxrender.com and octanerender.com sites and phpbb forums until a few years ago,
and i simply let sendmail on the freebsd server in question deliver the mail to wherever necessary,
it worked like a charm and works with the default sendmail config on freebsd installs.

What is zoho ? Am i getting old ?!? Wink

Unfortunately this relies on a number of things:

1. No major email providers will accept Sendmail or php mail(); generated email.
2. It requires good IP reputation. And that's just a pain to maintain.
3. It still will send a lot of email to spam.

Zoho is a third party email provider ala Google Suite, Office 365 etc. I have it use direct SMTP authentication to a noreply@ email hosted there.

We get extremely good deliverability reports, 95%. Google still silently drops our email.

So I said Fuck Google. We don't have time to mess with it.

Spent the last two days investigating. This is the best solution, because anything else would require me to fight with Google's L1 Indian technical support when I email their abuse team and spend days arguing back and forth. It's a waste of time. People don't like it? They're free to try running their own forum. It isn't gumdrops and ice cream. Especially when your member base is relatively technically literate. I don't make decisions like this lightly. It heads off a lot of issues.

RE: problems with emails ?
Radiance, your posts are incorrect and I would appreciate it if you don't talk like you know our setup. Because its a lot like getting into a car driven by a friend and then telling them either how to drive or what every little thing in their car does and your only experience is automatic pickup trucks and the car being driven is a manual Subaru.
