Different reply-to email address for Email Send?

I need a feature. In Email Settings.

There are:

  • SMTP Server
  • Port
  • From
  • User-ID
  • Password

I need one more, which is "Reply to Email".

The use-case is that I will have one email account which is used for validation. However, in Google at Work, I added an email alias. I would like all emails going out from Backend less to go out, using that Alias.

That way, I can have 4 or 5 apps using one email address specified, different reply-to emails.

Right now, the emails are going out via the email address configured in BackEndless (so far so good...)

Is is possible to add a different email to reply instead?

Thanks.

Hello,

Currently, it is not possible. I changed the type of the topic to "Idea" and we will consider adding it to the roadmap. Unfortunately, I cannot commit to a specific timeline though.

Regards,

Is it possible to use a different email provider, such as SendGrid, Mandrill or Mailchimp?

Sure, you can create a custom API service and use any external provider in there. Alternatively, you could create a beforeSendEmail event handler with your own logic:

If you were to go with that route, make sure to stop the default event processing as described at:
