Future HTML5 and mail

Post by Wally » Fri Aug 14, 2015 2:38 pm

I have an education app "ready" for the new HTML5 Livecode and it needs to send Emails for user registration purposes and to send Email results of student work to their teachers. I don't want to use revmail so generally speaking I would like to get some suggestions. The stack will sit on the on-Rev server diesel.

Sendmail sounds like it has problems and I don't think Sarah's SMTP library will work. I would be willing to pay for some help, hopefully someone will create a solution for this as other LiveCode users are expressing the same need.

Hi Wally,

You might want to look into a web based email service such as mailgun

http://www.mailgun.com/

Mailgun works with a REST API. Such an API is relatively simple to hook into in LiveCode as it is just URL calls.

A great thing about mailgun is that its free for the first 10,000 emails you send so there is no cost involved when trying it out :)

Kind Regards,

Neil Roger

Mailgun - Livecode

Post by jackrarick » Thu Feb 15, 2018 6:31 pm

Neil - and others - a little help please!

It was suggested in a post of yours (a few years ago!) that mailgun was a good alternative to sending emails. I've started working my way through their site and I certainly appreciate the suggestion.

BUT - no good deed is never gone unpunished.
AND It never hurts to ask ...

Soooo ... does anyone have a livecard stack they could share that communicates with mailgun?

I'll figure it out - I'd just love someone to save me 80 hours!

Thanks to all in advance!
