If you’re unable to send emails from Mailgun, you’ll need to troubleshoot the problem.
Here are a few ways to troubleshoot the issue:
- Verify your domain’s DNS records.
- Set limits for your sending domain, and more.
These tips will help you make sure that your emails are being sent to the right recipients.
Troubleshooting ‘Mailgun is not sending emails’
If your Mailgun account is not sending emails, you may want to check the Send Email trigger action and the email content.
If the email is correct, you should be able to send it. If it is not, you may have an incorrect tracking CNAME. If this is the case, see our DNS troubleshooting guide for help.
Alternatively, you might be receiving bounce messages. This is an indication that the recipient’s email address is invalid.
To correct this, you need to verify that the Mailgun server is configured to route the emails properly.
Verifying your domain with DNS records
If you are experiencing trouble sending emails, you may need to verify your domain with DNS records.
You can do this by going to the Mailgun control panel and selecting the “DNS records” option.
After you’ve made the changes, you should see a new “Verified” status for your domain. The process may take a few hours, so you should be patient.
The DNS records are stored on your domain. You must verify the domain with your domain host to send emails.
You’ll find this page in your domain’s management console. Next, go to the DNS records section and add the necessary records. If you’re not sure which DNS records to add, you can consult your host’s documentation.
Limits on who can be emailed
Mailgun is an email marketing tool that allows you to send bulk emails to many recipients at once. Users are issued SMTP credentials for each domain they own and can send mail from these domains using the API.
The domain is one of the parameters in the URI. The speed at which your emails are delivered depends on many factors, including the reputation of the domains, the total number of IPs allocated to your account, and the quality of the content.
The cheapest Mailgun plan costs $35 a month and is limited to 50,000 emails. If this sounds like a restriction, consider Mailgun’s alternatives, as many offer similar features at lower prices.
Mailgun offers several features that allow you to send emails to different domains and lists.
However, unless you have a verified domain, you won’t be able to use many of the features.
Mailgun also requires a credit card in order to be able to use its live website. Mailgun also limits its email features to five authorized recipients.
Limits on sandbox domains
Mailgun allows you to set up custom subdomains for tracking messages.
This way, when someone opens your message, it is rewritten with the custom subdomain. However, you must generate the certificate for this subdomain and set it up in your account.
If you don’t want to generate a certificate yourself, you can use Cloudflare or another proxy CDN to generate the SSL certificate for the tracking domain.
The webhook settings are managed from Mailgun’s dashboard, so you can update your configurations at any time.
Mailgun allows you to create several domains in a single account. Each domain is treated as a separate entity, so you’ll need to set up separate sending keys, mailing lists, and templates for each domain.
In addition, Mailgun doesn’t let you assign different team members to different domains, so if you want to send emails to different teams, you’ll need to create separate accounts for each domain.
Limits on OneSignal’s Email Web Prompt
If you’ve been experiencing problems with your Mailgun accounts, you may be experiencing a custom message limit.
This is the maximum number of messages that your account can send in a billing cycle.
If you reach this limit, your account will be disabled and you won’t be able to send any more messages. However, you will still have access to your dashboard.
OneSignal’s Email Web ProMPt is an email marketing tool that allows you to send emails from OneSignal.
The program allows you to create responsive email templates and schedule them. It also offers a built-in template editor that lets you edit your templates directly.
