Email plugin modded to solve a problem.


May 14, 2017 09:44AM EDT

Today I faced a problem with the email plugin because I misunderstood how it is supposed to work. Maybe someone else has the same problem.
The email plugins when used in smtp mode setup the sender and the destination email to the same address. The problem is when you setup an account for sending email to another account you look everyday.
I've edited the plugin adding an SMTP sender address used in the send process and now it works flawlessly.

in plugin.php change from:

and in plugin.json add:
"smtp_from_email": {
"type": "string",
"header": "Sender address",
"info": "Set the sender address",
"dependencies": {
"evaluate": "all",
"conditions": [
"option": "provider",
"equals": "smtp"

That's all!

Hi Riccardo!

Thanks a lot for your input! Already had a case where i could use your custom code to solve a similar issue. IMHO this should make it into the plugin as a standard feature.

Many email providers block sending mails that are sent with an alternate "from address" to avoid SPAM.

Regards, Chris
