@seeker So far, pretty good. Installation was a breeze. It's speedy as anything with just 896MB ram. LOTS to set up at first, of course. There is a section, Application Structure, which comes with a default list of Entities which can be viewed as a List, or a Flowchart, or you can create your own, or rename the existing (which is the expected Project ->Tasks/Tickets/Discussions, with Users, Teams, and Depts assignable to each. I like the ability to create my own, or rename/restructure the existing. On something like SuiteCRM, making your own flowchart was always really tedious - this feels much speedier and intuitive for some reason.
@robi I have had the same experience, discovering a message that was sent to me months before.
I had not thought about using a PTT service. I think the one that shows the most promise with a quick glance is the discord sandbox, as discord allows people to communicate via text and also send files. But then there is the issue that is it active for some ( the tech savy) but passive for the people who are not.
Thanks for the info. I am going to look into it deeper.
@atrilahiji I have seen elsewhere in the forum, that you are knowledgeable about Moodle. Do you think what I am thinking is possible even if a little crazy?
I have been working on exploring and setting up Cloudron. An important part of that for me is email and a mailing list. I am looking to make sure I have done everything I can to ensure people will get the emails I send out. I also have questions:)
I am curious what steps I should be taking to make sure emails sent from both the regular imap email account, Cloudron/ Cloudron apps, and also the mailtrain account are received? Ometvchatrouletteomeglebazoocam
I am planning on using mailtrain to send out to a list of people of between 50 and 100 about 6 times a year. Is it the best solution here?
Currently Mailtrain is set up to use Cloudron's email. I know it is possible to use a different server, but not sure what would be best or the cost? If people have other suggestions, please let me know.
How is the Mail train's app email used? It does not look like it can receive emails (see below)
What do I do to make sure email being sent has the best chance of arriving in recipient's inbox?
Any steps I should take based on the test below?
Any other tests I should do?
Setting up email
Enabled email/ set up email In order to do it properly I needed to change the name of the droplet so it matched.
Then set up email client using IMAP and sent an email out to a couple of people and it worked. The password type was "normal" how secure that is. While doing this I was curious how one goes about backing up email. I am coming from a shared hosting environment, where I can ftp the mail folders.
After sending and receiving a few test emails from the email client, I moved on to mailtrain.
Setting up Mailtrain
Installed the app. It looks lie mailtrain creates an admin email that is <install name.app.domain> That email address is also used by campaign defaults. I tried sending a test email to it however and it did not go anywhere. In testing sending some emails, it does not appear can just change this email to anything you want. It must match the app domain???
I created a list (of two people) and then sent an email to the two members on the list using mailtrain. 1 email went to a shared/self hosted email address and was received fine. The other went to an hotmail email address and went into the trash/spam folder.
Testing Email Setting:
Below I will show the test I ran, but if there are other test, let me know. I am new to this.
The first thing I checked was the test within Cloudron. Really appreciate this test being included!
One of the help docs mentioned checking your email server settings using
Initially it did not work, but I tried entering the domain name with and without www.domain. I did not include my.domain.
Below you will see that the Blacklist:4 and Failed:2
Here are the detailed results.
I can include more of the test, but the rest was green. I am not positive what I should do to address the request failure above.
I also used
I ran the test three times. The first test email did not fair well. It "would not have seen the light of day" with a score of .8 out of 10. The email did not have a subject or contents. The second email where I included a subject and a little paragraph of text got 10.10 The thrid test, I used a little more text- it also got a 10/10
But there were some flags consistent among the second and third tests:
Upon some investigating, did find a polls utility like doodle in nextcloud. It allows you to share it with users but also share a public link. Pols can be text based or created using a calendar. Persons responding can answer a yes,no and maybe on whatever options are offered. https://github.com/nextcloud/polls
@necrevistonnezr it is possible to change the cloudron.io account email, but only by us, since we haven't added the ui bits for that. Just drop an email at email@example.com with your current email and the one you want to have it changed to and we will take care of that.
