Mail tracking for Mailgun

This module integrates mail_tracking events with Mailgun webhooks.

Mailgun (https://www.mailgun.com/) is a service that provides an e-mail sending infrastructure through an SMTP server or via API. You can also query that API for seeing statistics of your sent e-mails, or provide hooks that processes the status changes in real time, which is the function used here.

Configuration

You must configure Mailgun webhooks in order to receive mail events:

  1. Got a Mailgun account and validate your sending domain.
  2. Go to Webhook tab and configure the below URL for each event:
https://<your_domain>/mail/tracking/all/<your_database>

Replace ‘<your_domain>’ with your Odoo install domain name and ‘<your_database>’ with your database name.

In order to validate Mailgun webhooks you have to configure the following system parameters:

  • mailgun.apikey: You can find Mailgun api_key in your validated sending domain.
  • mailgun.api_url: It should be fine as it is, but it could change in the future.
  • mailgun.validation_key: If you want to be able to check mail address validity you must config this parameter with your account Public Validation Key.

Usage

In your mail tracking status screens (explained on module mail_tracking), you will see a more accurate information, like the ‘Received’ or ‘Bounced’ status, which are not usually detected by normal SMTP servers.

It’s also possible to make some checks to the partner’s email addresses against the Mailgun API:

  • Check if the partner’s email is in Mailgun’s bounced list.
  • Check the validity of the partner’s mailbox.
  • Force the partner’s email into Mailgun’s bounced list or delete from it.

It’s also possible to manually check a message mailgun tracking when the webhook couldn’t be captured. For that, go to that message tracking form, press the button Check Mailgun. It’s important to note that tracking events have quite a short lifespan, so after 24h they won’t be recoverable.
