    • Did you use any elgg plugin that works for mailgun, could you share info on how did you set up 

    • No plugin, you just set your dns to resolve their servers

    • If the server has a low credibility (by definition of the email providers) the mails (especially almost identical mails like the validations mails) can easily result in being marked as spam. As new server can quickly get a bad credibility if there are mainly the quite identical mails sent.

      To improve the credibility there are several things you can set up on your server to allow for email providers verifying the origin of the emails and check if the sender is valid:

      • Sender Policy Framework (SPF),
      • DomainKeys,
      • valid PTR record for inverse DNS lookups.

      They need to be set up on the server for example in CPanel. Though it depends on the hosting environment if you are even allowed to configure these things on your own (most likely you will not be allowed to set up the PTR record yourself but only your hoster). I would suggest to get in contact with support of your hoster and ask them to help you.

      It's important to allow the email providers to check the origin and credibility of the sender. Otherwise, you domain / IP address can quckly get blacklisted by one email provider (resulting sooner or later other email providers also no longer processing your emails as the also check the blacklists). You should also check if your server is already in a blacklist. Often used is https://www.spamhaus.org. Another site was http://www.senderbase.org but it now redirects to https://talosintelligence.com/ (not sure if they still hosts mailserver blacklists). You should check if your IP address (specifically the IP used by the mail server) and/or domain are in their blacklists. If this is the case you can request to be removed. But the removal would only be temporarily if you won't improve the credibility of your server.

  • I have question if some one sends message to a user does it sends a email to them in elgg? i have not seen email messages coming dont know if its a functionality implemented or not Also if some one add as you as friend and sent friend...
    • It's a core functiionlty. Learn docs. Use search and read the existing topics: 1, 2, 3, 4

    • Several things:

      • the Notification plugin needs to be enabled for handling the notifications,
      • if you also want on-site notifications the Site Notifications plugin also need to be enabled,
      • the notifications are handled by Elgg by a scheduler, i.e. the notifications are not sent immediatelly but put into a queue that gets processed once per minute. For the processing of the queue to happen you need to have the "minute" cronjob set up on your server,
      • Each user can configure in the user settings (Notifcation settings and Group notification settings) which notifcations he wants to get and which methods he wants to get them with (email and/or site notifcations).

      Assuming that your server is capable of sending mails coming from Elgg (e.g. validation emails are working), you need to make sure that the other steps to get email notifications are also correctly set up.

  • is there a working plugin for 2.3.8 for Importing contacts from  the emails including all social networks and all Email providers ? there are plugins for very old version but for 2.3.8 version i dont see any plugins updated for these, is...
    •  
      there is the upload_users plugin which allows from a csv file to import users
       
    • I think there isn't any working plugin for Elgg 2.x that would directly fetch contacts from other social networks for sending invitation emails to these contacts. The available older plugins seem to have used the OpenInviter service to provide the contacts from FB, Twitter and other sites. The disussion topics I found about people being interested in updating the plugin all seemed to end with people being interested in updating the plugin but then not doing it or getting stuck doing it. The comments mentioned that the OpenInviter forum seemed flooded with spam (and the comments were made years ago in some cases). So, maybe the OpenInviter service is no longer maintained by reliable people or maybe not at all. I could also imagine that it might no longer be possible at all to fetch the contacts from FB and other social network sites. These companies might have simply disabled the necessary API after all the misuse and scandals that happended during the last couple of years.

      Still the bundled Invite Friends plugin could send out invitation emails to several people at once. You only need to enter one email address per line (or copy+paste the list into the field). It might be not as comfortable if the users need to prepare the list of email addresses on their own. On the other hand, you avoid any external party getting involved (who surely are more than happy to get all these email addresses and the connection between the people they belong to offered for free - and most likely their business involves selling this data).
