In previous versions, Manager could send emails without setup. This no longer works.
Email protocol is abused by spammers who send unsolicited emails and as a result, email providers are employing various anti-spam detection mechanisms to be able to tell legitimate emails from spam emails apart.
In order to make sure that emails sent from Manager are not considered as spam, we’ve been using reputable SMTP relay service from Mailgun.com
Unfortunately Mailgun.com has shut down our account yesterday because our emails look suspicious due to high rate of bounced emails. Because people often mistype email addresses in Manager, we always had higher than typical bounce rate. This hasn’t been problem because our volume was low. However since Manager is used by more and more people every month, we’ve started to send enough emails through Mailgun.com to get on their radar.
We could find another SMTP relay but it would be a matter of time before we’d get shut down again. So we need to move to solution which won’t break.
You can still send emails from Manager but you will need to provide your own SMTP relay credentials under
Settings tab, then
If you have an email address, you have SMTP server you can use (e.g. Gmail). There are also plenty of SMTP server providers who offer this service for free. Many have generous limit. For example, Mailgun.com allows to send up to 10,000 emails per month for free.
The key is that every user of Manager will need to have their own SMTP relay. There cannot be a shared one across tens of thousands of users. One bad actor will eventually ruin it for everyone.
