Fastmail used with XenForo?
Is it possible to use a third party email service such as Fastmail for sending email confirmations during user signup and sending infrequent emails through Xenforo?
through another host @centminmod:
I use Amazon SES for smtp emails in Xenforo - works well
FYI, it appears some (a lot?) of sites block amazonses due to the spam coming from their IP blocks:
We are sorry that you experienced deliverability problems using Amazon SES. We do work closely with mailbox providers and blacklist operators, and carefully monitor the reputation of our IP address space. Whenever possible, we work directly with these providers to identify and mitigate such threats in parallel with our own routine compliance processes to remove offending users from our system. Unfortunately, we cannot provide a guarantee or timeframe, because the list operator sets their own listing and delisting policy.
Please note that the appearance of an Amazon SES IP address on a blacklist does not always affect your sending as an Amazon SES customer. If your sending is affected, you will most commonly get an indication via a bounce message that your mail is being rejected due to a listing on a blacklist. In most of these cases, you will see the name or URL of the blacklist in the bounce message. For example, “Message rejected due to IP 22.214.171.124 listed on RBL SORBS/SPAMCANNIBAL”. If you do not see these types of messages in your bounces, it is unlikely that a listing is affecting your sending."
Please feel free to share the bounce messages if any with us so that we can check this up further.
