Thanks.

I think that phpList may be what you are after. However keep in mind that if you aren't careful (and perhaps even if you are), your server may be blacklisted for sending spam. If you are using TurnKey via the Hub a helpful doc written by another TurnKey user about configuring your server may be useful!? If your server is hosted elsewhere something similar probably applies, but you'll need to work that out yourself...

First of all, apologies for hijacking this thread, but I suspect I'm missing something obvious that didn't merit opening a new one...

I installed phpList, but I can't get it to send ANY mail messages. Not the "test" mesages, not "campaign" messages, not even "password reset" messages. As I write this, it occurs to me that it might have some MTA configuration missing, but I thougt it's supposed to work "out of the box"?

What can I look for? System logs just mention "message successfully sent" but nothing ever is received on my test mailboxes (on several different domains).

Best regards and keep up the good work!

I found out the problem: I had to correctly configure "myhostname" on /etc/postfix/main.cf

Best regards, keep up the good work and sorry!

Ideally it should have "just worked" so that probably should be better documented in the short term. We should also look a bit closer at automating that for our next release.

Also as somewhat of an aside, for super reliable email sending we suggest that you configure your server to use a remote SMTP relay service for sending emails.

PS so this doesn't fall through the cracks, I added an issue to our tracker.
