  1. support outgoing mail

    I know there are existing options including something like Postmarkapp to Amazon SES, but it would be nice to have a single stop shop for all email handling. both incoming and outgoing mail would be sweet.

      I’d be really interested to know what other people think on this. It’s highly unlikely that we will look into this in the short term however we would value the opinions of our users here. Does having everything in one place help or is it better to concentrate on what we do best?

    • allow multiple addresses for testing purposes

      Once I paid for one account, it should let me have multiple accounts so that I can test your service on my development and staging sites. I want to make sure I can email attachments and whatnot on my staging site as well and not have to mess with production to do so.

      Great service btw!

        This is certainly under review. At the moment we plan to charge per address once we go live. The reason for this was that many agencies have used CloudMailin to create accounts and we wanted to keep things separate. Until we go live it will be hard to tell the best setup for everyone, but we will review things for sure. For now if you have an issue with this please contact us ‘off list’ at the support email and we can discuss things.

      • flag auto-response emails when posting

        We have a reply-by-email feature for our forum that uses Cloudmailin. Sometimes the app gets caught in an infinite loop due to auto-responders. We set the "Auto-submitted" header on our outgoing emails and check for it on incoming ones, but some other mail clients don't set things correctly.

        It would be nice if Cloudmailin could analyze emails to see if an incoming email is from an autoresponder. Maybe you guys can do a better job of identifying that than I can.

        • S3 path to be customized during process

          Would be great to have the ability to exactly tell to CloudMailIn which path to use for each mail attachment separately. Best would be to use the authorize_mail callback or have a new one which is called after successfully authorize a mail but before the incoming_mail callback is called. The new callback should be able to specify a save path within the bucket. Use case would be if I want to specify a path per user in S3. I can identify the user already by authorize_mail, so there should be no problem to generate the correct file path.

          • Collect messages from IMAP/POP3 accounts

            Allow users to enter an IMAP or POP3 account and collect the email directly from the account and deliver it in the same way as other messages.

              This wouldn’t allow for all of the benefits of the CloudMailin system but might allow users of legacy systems to migrate to the system more easily.

            • Show the message target in the delivery status

              It is currently possible to change the target of delivery. So that you know where delivery was attempted the target should be shown if required in the delivery status

              • Show mx email custom-domain on cloudmailin mails

                Similar to the change you made for the accounts page, for me, the @cloudmailin email address shown on the email reports are of less value than the custom domain setup. Any way to have that reported for the email reports?

                • Option to drop / strip attachments

                  Increasingly we are seeing inbound emails with images attached as part of the sender's email signature. As our app ignores attachments even if they are present, it would be nice to have the option to skip / drop attachments entirely... as in, not even bother including them in the POST to our server or uploading to S3.

                  • Disable delayed actions

                    It happens if HTTP target is unreachable then the action is marked delayed and keeps on retrying by some time interval. Although this is good for some application, but it has adverse effect for time sensitive applications. So, I don't want this retrying feature, if HTTP target is unreachable, I want no further retry.

                    I do not see any option to disable. Is is possible to do? otherwise this will be a good feature to add.

                    • Custom failure messages should be controlled on CloudMailin

                      Currently, you can send back a custom failure message by responding with text/plain. The problem is, sometimes you do not have full control of error pages. For example, on Heroku, if there is a problem above your app on the Heroku side, they will throw an error message, with a pre-set error page that you define. This error page is always HTML, and is the same error across your entire app.

                      Therefore, perhaps in addition to returning a custom failure message, there could be a "default" error message that you set in your CloudMailin account, which will be used for…

                        The error messages are something we really need to put some thought into. At the moment the error message isn’t pretty either. However there will be a default error message even if no error is returned. As a side note however errors are only relevant to 4xx status codes and all of these are controllable in heroku as they are thrown by your app.

                        We’ve added the ability to set details of a custom max size message however, we need to look into this as a possibility.

                      • Store Email Message In S3 Bucket.

                        I know attachments can be sent to an s3 store, but if instead of posting the mail message to an url endpoint it could be sent to another S3 bucket, I could then implement my own processing queue in AWS by using S3 buckets events.
                        Ideally this S3 bucket should be different from the attachment S3 bucket to avoid contaminating the event queue.

                          This has actually been planned for a while now. We’re looking at the options for providing this, however we’ve decided that the URL should still be contacted in any case as without the HTTP POST things can get a little complex.

                          We will reach out via email to discuss this further.

                        • Allow deletion of emails that have errors

                          While looking at the list of emails, be able to delete ones that have received errors from my app - so, they don't keep trying over and over.

                                    Hey, how do you envisage this encryption working? I’m not sure how useful encrypting would be as we still need to be able to decrypt it on our side again to send the credentials meaning that we would have to use two way encryption and keep the keys on the server anyway?

                                      Hey, CloudMailin supports UTF-8 fully for it’s message handling. Is this for the custom maximum size messages? They should already support UTF-8 but we will look at this and fix if not!

                                    • Make a 'reprocess now' option for delayed or otherwise error email

                                      When a mail item is delayed, it would be nice from a development point of view to be able to hit 'reprocess'. Also it would be nice to be able to hit 'redirect' if we want to bounce a copy to a dev server.

                                      • display response time for each email

                                        when viewing the details of an email and its request, display the amount of time it took to process the response.

                                        • provide websites that run a program such as Simplex

                                          Simplex is the worlds first thinking machine that uses the English language to think! (Written by myself)

                                          All I need is a website that will run my program, accepting a string from any source, and then transmit back to the caller/source with a string generated by the Simplex program.
