I am trying to (re)configure Goldmine to send emails generated via an AP from one account which actually have a different return email address.
- ie I am trying to spoof an email from a different account.
The system was configured to do this by my predecessor and after numerous upgrades of Goldmine this 'feature' has stopped working and I have a lack of documentation on what he originally did, it's also possible that this was a 3rd party plugin but once again I have no documentation and cannot confirm this.
Here is an overview of what I would like to achieve.
Daniel (standard user) [email protected] (SMTP, no pop)
Rachel (standard user) [email protected] (SMTP, no pop)
Bob (web import user) [email protected] (SMTP, POP)
The Bob account is logged in and runs 24/7 it receives emails only - this is our web-import account. The web import will trigger an AP which will then perform an action of "E-mail message" for either Daniel or Rachel and queue this.
The Daniel & Rachel (sales people) accounts are not used - they are effectively dummy accounts with valid email addresses we want emails being sent from our system to have come from these users.
As Bob is logged in all the time, we would like this account to clear all queued emails for Daniel & Rachel as part of Bob's configured schedule which is running via a service agent.
So I found a forum discussion via Google titled 'Sending "spoofed" email using GoldMine APs' by Scottie Sharpe dated September 2010 which sounds very similar to what I want to achieve (not sure if I am allowed to link off site here) I set this up in a clean version of Goldmine but could not get the 'group' emails to be sent.
If I log in as either Daniel or Rachel I can see the queued emails and I can send these successfully so the SMTP settings are correct.
- pop fails as expected because I have not configured the POP account for these users. As I write this though I just a thought - if receiving emails fails, would this then stop the whole process so the sending of emails never gets looked at? - I will test this and update when I have a result.
Meantime, it would be great if any other Goldmine Administrators or the like who have done things similar could advise on their approach or possibly can point out where I have gone astray.
