GD Mail Queue 4.1 Pro

Next update for GD Mail Queue Pro plugin, version 4.1 has been just released, and it includes several updates and fixes, support for MailJet SMTP service and two new REST API addons: Gmail and MailJet.

The plugin has new SMTP service built in, this time for MailJet with options to control tracking. Besides that, the plugin has a new way for detection of plain text emails. In some cases, if the wp_mail is used incorrectly to build HTML email, the plugin can wrongly detect the type of email. These changes solve that problem. You have new advanced misc settings to control the detection process and to if needed, fix the wrong content type.

This version improves on few things, and it also fixes several bugs including SendGrid missing ReplyTo value, some minor issues with base addon classes and potential issue with saving error message in the log.

The plugin has two new addons, for two very popular email services: MailJet and Gmail. For Gmail, there is a comprehensive user guide included with information on how to set the API access (and it is not simple, considering how complex API system Google has). The plugin now supports 5 third-party services using the REST API connection methods.

Check out the plugin features, and let me know what else would you like to see in the plugin and which third-party services to support. If you find any issue with the plugin, as usual, please report them in the support forums.

  1. Hi,

    If you really want more Pro plugin ideas then I would love:

    A blacklist of email addresses that the plugin would not send emails to no matter what – I run a site where users create accounts and get UGC emails and sometimes get complaints from people who can’t follow unsubscribe instructions. The ability to prevent more emails being sent to them would be great.

    A safe staging mode – the ability to enter an url of your primary domain so that the plugin can detect when it is on a different domain (eg when cloned over to your staging site) and only sends emails to the admin when on the staging site. There is a plugin called safe staging on Github that covers this but better to have it all in the one updated plugin.

    Thanks,
    Dale.

    • Hi Dale,

      Both great ideas and both will be on the roadmap for next 4.x updates. I expect to have two more releases in July and August, there is a great chance both your ideas will be addressed in these Summer updates.

      Regards,
      Milan

  2. Hi,
    Just noticed this plugin release:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-html-mail-buddypress/

    Do you need something like this to make your plugin work with BuddyPress or you already have fixed this problem?

    Thanks,
    Dale.

    • Currently, my plugin works with BuddyPress. Since BP sends HTML emails, my plugin HTMLfy option is not used, but everything else should work fine. My plugin doesn’t replace WP mail functionalities (that is why most email plugin cause problems, they try to replace wp_mail), it simply hooks just before PHPMailer is used, and BuddyPress uses PHPMailer with same hooks as WP. There are cases when that will fail because in BP you can replace mailer class completely.

      I plan to add an option to switch off the BP own mailer if users prefer that my plugin builds the HTML. Maybe I will include a few more BP related things if needed.
