  • Resolved yuri_calm


    I want to automatically post our email newsletters on our site.

    We use Mailchimp. My plan was to:
    – create a dummy user with a Gmail account (as a contributor for testing proposes to make it later an author when everything works);
    – include its email in our MailChimp newsletter list;
    – enable Jetpack’s Post By Email option for the user;
    – setup advanced redirect filters to verify the sender address and the subject of the letter to resend only the proper letters to the auto-posting address only if they match filters.

    A problem emerged: I cannot verify the auto-posting address on google to use it for redirecting because ignores Google’s letters with verification codes (I hoped I would see it as a contributor user’s pending post on my WP).

    Any ideas how to make it work? Or is there any other way to integrate MailChimp campaigns with WP?

    Thank you.

    P.S. I also tried to include the auto-posting address directly in a MailChimp’s list and it seems to be not working that directly either.

    Sorry about the delay in writing back to you.

    I’m afraid this won’t work. Jetpack’s Post By Email feature checks where each email comes from before to publish it on your site, and will reject emails sent by automated tools to avoid abuse by spammers.

    You’ll consequently need to find a different solution to that problem.

    I’m sorry not to be of more help.
