Support » Plugin: Post SMTP Mailer/Email Log » Multiple Issues: PDFs / Buddypress Messages

  • Hey guys,

    I have a few issues that I have encountered since switching to Post SMTP Mailer:

    1) It seems like messages that send out PDFs, like for example my memberpress invoice emails, do not work with the inbuilt mailer. The plugin then returns the following error message:

    The given data was invalid. validation.this_or_that Not found, check status column for more info.

    I solved this issue by switching to the PHPMailer again, but it would be great, if it could also work with the other one.

    2) I am using the BP Groups Email Subscription plugin to send out weekly digests to my members of their group activities. In order for the digests to be sent as HTML emails, I have to use the following filter to make it work because it seems like POST SMTP is setting it to “true” add_filter( 'bp_email_use_wp_mail', '__return_false' ); but it needs to be set to false!

    By doing so, all emails look fine. However, this causes two issues:

    a) Buddypress emails do not end up in the log anymore
    b) If a user sends a message via Buddypress to another user, the entire handschake between the smtp server and the website becomes public! The message is sent along with the corresponding email, but the server dialogue is visible, which is quite a strange behavior and only appears when I apply the filter mentioned above! See here:

    Especially b) is a critical issue where I would greatly appreciate your support to fix the problem 🙂

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Kind regards, Philip

    Dear @yehudah, @tneville,

    is this plugin still supported? If so, I would highly appreciate if you could help me solve the visible handshake issue described above!

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Kind regards, Philip

    Hi @strothi,

    Yes, the plugin is still supported. This needs @yehudah’s attention as it is a bit more advanced. Sorry I can’t be of more assistance.

    Kind Regards,

    I’m terribly sorry for the delay and the trouble you have.

    Unfortunately, I’m not familiar with BuddyPress and I didn’t do any tests with it.

    I can try to test it, but with my current free time, it will take a long time to give you a proper answer so my best advice for the moment is to try another plugin.

    I hope that in the future I can offer better support.
