Mailgun for WordPress

    I'm using the mymail plugin to generate newsletters and would like to send them via mailgun. Mymail has options to deliver via sendmail and php's mail() function — which it appears that mailgun doesn't hook into, I'm assuming it grabs wpmail (haven't started digging into the plugin's code yet).

    Any chance of an option to redirect the php mail() function?

    @adinb, have you gotten this figured out yet? While I have not used Mailgung for WordPress...yet, plans too, I would think that using SMTP would be the better way than the php mail() function. One of the whole ideas is so that you can be sending your emails from a reliable SMTP server that will improve your deliverability rate.

    I would also suggest using Secure SMTP as well. But if you do, remember the server (network) your WP site is on, will need to have PORT 465 OPEN to be able to send emails via Secure SMTP. Ask your host, they should be able to help you.
