Re: openemm reply to mail tracking

Please don't thread hijack. This thread is about reply tr...

what does $HOME/bin/scripts/slrtscn.py do?

Hi,

Can someone confirm that this script does something (bounces?) ONLY for sendmail? So it is not needed if we are not using sendmail and are using the smart-relay? If so, could this be switched off on an installation that doesn't use sendmail?

Thanks.

Re: Install on a cloud?

I hope you are getting insanely good service for those prices... But the question, as always with moving to the cloud, is do you need to? What is causing you pain at the moment? Not enough memory? Disks too slow at peak traffic times? Email broadcasting is definitely a 24/7 affair so you will need s...

AJP?

Hi, Has anyone noticed any problems running via Apache2 with AJP? I have a strange philosophical aversion to rerouting via iptables and this would seem like the perfect solution. AJP is even enabled by default in server.xml, though it may just not have been removed. If it's fine, should I keep the d...

Re: Blacklist ignored; how to send to all mailing lists

1. I have about 1000 addresses in my blacklist, and the blacklist function normally works. The last time, however, it seemed to totally ignore the blacklist and generate and send to everyone in the mailing list leading to thousands of bounced emails :( . What could have caused this? I don't remembe...

Re: general question

While I definitely don't want to detract from what you guys are providing, I think there are a few impediments to more developers getting involved that could be solved. I totally realise that you have a commercial product and you don't want some functionality implemented but I feel contributing coul...

Re: Collect Actual Email addresses of those who opened email

It's pretty frustrating that there isn't a button to download the openers or some way to do this with the target groups. It seems as though can be done via sql pretty easily (once you work out what tables are involved!). You can find your links by looking at the "linkId" in the URL on the trackable ...

Re: How to build and debug OpenEMM by using Eclipse?

OpenEMM is definitely not the best project for you to learn about Java programming on. The community is relatively small, and contributions from it are rare (either in support or code - I don't believe there's even community SCM).

Re: Problem with router and MTA, collapse after send mailing

You shouldn't be trying to send email with consumer grade material, and you shouldn't be doing it from home - that's what botnets do. You can get pretty cheap VPS these days and they are far more appropriate than sending from your home connection.

Re: Delete all binding subscriber from a mailling list

I guess this is related to your later question about transactionals. If you really wanted to be sure, I guess you could just delete and recreate the mailinglist. This would obviously mean you store the "current" mailinglist id in the db and you would also need to make sure your code calling openemm ...

Re: general question

Hi, While it's a great product, community support is not one of OpenEMM's strong points, at least not currently! You will see lots of unanswered questions here - I suspect because the people who really know about it don't have a huge motivation to help. OpenEMM is definitely geared towards managing ...

Re: Step to send a transaction mail

Hi, This is a bit late but anyway, I'm also interested in the "proper" answer, as I haven't got any yet. It appears that transactionals may be one of the weak points of openemm. At the very least, the documentation is seriously lacking on the subject. Did you actually make this work? If I understand...

Re: Using priority queues in OpenEMM 2013?

If you want to send lots of email fast, then you will need to invest in an smtp product that is made to send email fast and efficiently. There may be a way to tweak open source products to be faster, but you need to realise that they weren't designed for this purpose, so you are always going to be l...

Re: Steps required to extend web services?

I'm not sure about for the webservices (I've only modified site internal code) but as long as you deploy all the classes that refer to your new classes, you should be Ok just deploying the class files - it worked for me!
