Multiple SMTP settings for different mailing segments

Just wanted to ask if the above functionality for this use case example is possible:
Segment 1 contains all other email addresses
Segment 2 contains only Gmail email addresses

Is there a way to configure the SMTP settings so that it would use, for example, Amazon SES for Segment 1 and another SMTP for segment 2?

If no, are there any plugins that can enable this functionality?

There isn’t right now, but I’ll be interested in chipping for the development in for this one.
We should include:

  1. you need proper domain records for all sending method. Some verification would be nice.
  2. we could combine this with using different tracking domain (CNAME mautic install)
  3. When you send out a campaign, you could choose which sending method you want to use.

In my opinion this feature is very much targeted for marketers, who would like to use Mautic as an alternative tool to expensive marketing tools. We could pay for this development and enlarge Mautic’s userbase with these marketers.

I would throw in $100 for this development, how much would you be ready to spend on this one?

I am willing to chip in another $100.

I’d like to use different smtp servers for “high touch” campaigns to try to get better deliverability into the main inbox.

Since I’ve never done this before, this is a time limited offer, this needs to be discussed, etc etc.

What amount do these things usually need to raise before they are realised?

Is there a list of backable features?

You have to make your own.
Btw, I checked and Symfony supports multiple smtp capability as well.
Mtcextendee has a random SMTP feature so it’s possible.

I got to know that this community (especially the project’s Lead) threats people who propose/find bugs/ want to mangle with anything as Enemies, or if you are a business they would ask EUR/an hour.

Thus you are better off with simply giving a go to:

https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/how-to-configure-postfix-relayhost-smarthost-to-send-email-using-an-external-smptd/

if you are on Postfix simply add a line to your main configuration file
sender_dependent_relayhost_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport
and then, in that file
@centos.org.pl poczta.centos.com.pl

  • add as many relaying/routing based on source email address as you wish.

For postfix also:

We would be happy chipping in another $100 to get this made - I see it is an old post, but maybe someone wants to pick this up

I would wait until Mautic 5, because the way how emails will be sent is about to change. Then it would be a good time to add this feature. (And by adding this feature I mean evil contributors working for free on this task on their own time for fun and tackling a challenge, making Mautic awesome for people who try to make money with it, like certain posters in this Forum. OR they are paid for the work they do.)

Regarding the Postfix hack via relayhost mapping, thank you for posting. It sounds interesting, if it works for those, who still use SMTP as sending method. Can you plz test if the Amazon SES feedback loop still works if you don’t use Amazon SMTP as sender, but Other SMTP? I know that Amazon API feedback loop works only if you have Amazon SES API as sending method.

Just to be clear: its $300 now if someone want to build it :smiley:

I would add additional 100$. Maybe I would have implemented myself haven’t I been banned by Miss Lead from GitHub for reporting bugs too often.

As of now the work around is:
Use custom postfix settings and send-out emails from a specific e-mail address.

It gets the job done. If anyone is having problems with configuration I would gladly assist.

Thank you for chipping in. Dan you answer my practical questions above about api feedback loops? Noone really wants to use bounce email fetching in 2022. Also: do I need to co figure a postfix server to do this? Moreover: does port 25 have to be open?
