[Resolved] Two questions

  • I haven’t yet installed wpMandrill but it looks a very useful facility.

    Before I jump, I have two questions:

    1) Does Mandrill automatically install spf and rDNS records in your DNS settings?

    2) I have a few sites on my system. Will I need a separate API for each or can I use the same API for them all? These are completely separate WP installations, not multisites.

    Hey,

    1) No, you have to do it yourself.

    2) You can use the same API for all your sites. I’d recommend to add a unique general tag for each site though (you can do this in the settings page of wpMandrill).

    Thanks @mc_will.

    I add spf and rDNS records to my own nameserver but if the mail goes by API link to Mandrill and then out to the various recipients, won’t the next mail router down the line see a mail that says From: myname@mydomain.com but coming from the Mandrill IP number?

    So don’t the Mandrill spf/rDNS records need changing?

    Or doesn’t it work this way? ie does it leave the source IP number as my IP number which will match my spf/rDNS settings?

    By setting the SPF you are explicitly allowing Mandrill to send emails on your behalf.

    When you send an email to an email address, its email server verifies that the email is coming from an authorized source. This is done by checking the existence of a SPF record in your DNS.

    This article might help you clarify this:
