[DBTech] DragonByte Mail

[DBTech] DragonByte Mail 4.2.2

No permission to buy ($24.95)
Update highlights

This update adds the ability to override the email transport to the Digest feature. Previously, you could only override the email transport for Newsletters, but it was rightly pointed out that Digests are bulk emails too, and it might be wise to allow it to be overridden as well.

After a lengthy Beta period, this product has gone Gold 🎉

This version contains no changes from the previous version. Future updates will require XenForo 2.1.

If you want the full details on the v4.1.0 release, you can check it out here: https://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/store/dragonbyte-mail.342/release/1731/


Complete Change Log

No changes.
Because I will be taking advantage of features that only exist in XenForo 2.1, the next version will require XenForo 2.1.

In the meantime, I will release a "Gold" version of the current beta or RC version. This "Gold" version should work fine with XenForo 2.1. There are no known blocking issues with the planned "Gold" version of this mod preventing it from running on XenForo 2.1.

Yeah, I'm not sure how that happened either 😅

Update highlights

This version features major feature additions and enhancements, with the main highlights being the return of tracking features, as well as the SMTP Validation feature.

You're now able to enable "clicktracking" for mailing list emails, where the links in your email will be converted into a trackable format. When the user clicks links in your email, they'll get redirected to where the links originally pointed to, be they on-site links or external links.
In future updates, we'll expose these statistics to you via logs and statistics.

You're also able to track when an email is opened, along with an estimation of the read time per email.
In future updates, we'll expose these statistics to you via logs and statistics.

Both of these features can be disabled or enabled per mailing list.

The other major feature is, as mentioned previously, SMTP Validation. While this feature isn't as robust as 3rd party services you have to pay for, it is completely free.
If you use the "bounced email" setting in XF2, your server can use this email to essentially pretend to send an email to the remote email server, but cancel the connection before an email is actually sent.
This means if the email server reports that no such user exists, or the remote server doesn't exist any more, your forum will already know this user's email address is invalid.

Your forum will automatically verify 25 email addresses every 3 hours. These values cannot be changed, as increasing them would have a negative impact on the performance of your site. If you wish to manually verify more emails, you can use a command-line tool: php cmd.php dbtech-mail:validate-emails <numEmails>

This feature does come with some requirements regarding your server and your environment, and these are explained in the settings page for this product. Because of these requirements, this feature is disabled by default.

Discovered bugs have also been fixed.

Lastly, we've added an install-upgrade.json file in preparation for compatibility with the [TH] Install & Upgrade add-on.
