I need a feature. In Email Settings.
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?
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.
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:
We’re interested in this approach too (create a beforeSendEmail event handler) but the link to image (presumably screenshot of logic) in @mark-piller 's message above is a broken link… please restore
I can see the screenshot just fine:
Ah ok, in your reply there is a link (http://support.backendless.com/public/attachments/4d277113210c675b01b4fbfe246cc1f0.jpg), I thought perhaps there was one additional screenshot.
BTW the other link (to the docs) is no longer correct, the new link is Stop Event Processing - Developing Backendless Server Code with node.js
