Support » Plugin: Post SMTP Mailer/Email Log » Odd redirects…

  • I don’t know if this is directly related to your plugin or not… but I noticed something very strange on my site the other day.

    My caching plugin did a deep search of links and it found hundreds of redirects all resembling the following:

    https://mydomain.com/postman_sent_mail/permalink-address-of-various-blog-posts-81/

    When you visit the redirect, they all are forwarded to the main mydomain.com. And where “81” is, there is always a random number… and it seems to be for just about every post on the site. There are hundreds of these redirects.

    Is this in relation to something the plugin is doing? If so how can I stop it / remove these redirects?

    Thanks for any insight you may be able to shed on the situation.

    Oh lol! Should have clued in on that (tired dad syndrome). It’s Swift Performance.

    Does that help?

    I downloaded the lite version, can found what you describe.
    can you screenshot?

    On Swift, you have the option of setting which Post types are cached.

    Post SMTP stores the emails in the Post table I believe as a post of type “POST SMTP”.

    If you are also using the pre-build cache option, but have specified ALL post types, then Swift will create a cached version of all Post types.

    Even if you ran the auto-configure option, you can then go in and fine tune Swift’s settings. You can tell Swift to only cache Page and Post types, which will ignore other non user readable post types (i.e. WordPress user created menus are also stored within the Post table so Swift will create a cached page for those as well). Depending on any other plugins you might have (WooCommerce for example), you may have other page types which are real pages and would need caching).

    I’m pretty sure if you exclude the POST_SMPT post type from the pre-cache options, you’ll stop any issues for the types of link you are seeing.
