  1. Notify account holder when reaching max routes limit

    The maximum limit for routes is 5,000. Currently Mailgun does not notify you when you're close to the limit. This is especially risky if you create lots of routes programmatically via the Routes API.

    • Add the ability to set a daily or hourly cap on outgoing messages

      This would be a useful safety feature in the event that something goes wrong in user code that is pushing messages thru mailgun.

      • Add segmenting options to the list sending API to make it easier to send to a portion of the list

        Add some options to segment list sending, or create temporary lists based on number of list members.

        • Add a throttling to allow for list sending to be sent over longer time period

          When sending out to a large list, a user may sometimes wish to throttle the sends over a time period to avoid having too many responses or heavy web traffic all hitting at once.

          • Provide a "Spam Probability" API

            There should be an endpoint where you can submit the MIME of a message and get a spam probability score to determine deliverability.

            • Sanitize and/or parse addresses in headers for incoming email

              Standard email headers such as FROM, CC, TO, SENDER, etc. contain email addresses, groups, or lists of addresses as described in RFC 5322.

              Mailgun currently passes on the (transcoded) data as it is received, including any errors that buggy MUAs or ESPs may send. Moreover, most libraries only do very strict parsing; This forces developers to implement lenient parsing themselves to ensure all incoming email is accepted.

              Mailgun could sanitize these fields in a way that we can really trust the headers and use a strict parser on them. That would be a big plus.

              It would even BETTER if…

              • Please Turn of CAPTCHA-I'm-not-a-Robot for Those with 2FA

                Hi Guys:

                I have 2-factor switched on with you... super-hi secure. I don't even allow the texting version - Google Authenticator only, so my Mailgun account is really very secure.

                However, for the best of reasons, you've implemented the CAPTCHA-I'm-not-a-Robot step where one has to recognize cars, mountains, traffic lights etc... BEFORE the 2-step. It's an annoying extra step that no other site requires for folks with 2FA enabled.

                Can you please get rid of it for those of us who've already done the secure thing and switched on 2-step please?

                Happy Holidays...

                  • IP Whitelisting for account login - to help agencies who work with many clients

                    Logging into multiple client accounts seems to cause us to start getting one-time code prompts frequently, making it very difficult to work with them.

                    • Unsubscribe templates design

                      The two unsubscribe templates (the one that asks you for confirmation and the one with the ok message) have such very basic styling that makes this feature almost unusable. Just using the same styles as in your main site (fonts, colors) would give a much better impression.

                        Hey there,

                        Thank you for submitting and supporting this idea!

                        While we can’t guarantee our templates will be updated (even though that would be nice!) we’ve gone ahead and presented this idea to our user experience team.

                        Please look forward to updates on this! We appreciate your patience and understanding in advance.

                      • Do not silently drop nameless attachments over HTTP API

                        We're currently switching our email sending from SMTP to the HTTP API and noticed that some attachments were being silently dropped.
                        The main problem seems to be twofold:
                        1) the HTTP API requires non-ASCII filenames to be encoded using the "newish" RFC 7578 and simply ignores filenames encoded using the older RFC 2231.
                        2) attachments sent without filenames (or whose filenames were ignored because of #1) are simply dropped without warning, causing broken content to be sent.

                        Some more technical info can be found in this github issue: https://github.com/anymail/django-anymail/issues/125 (including examples of how to replicate)

                        Ideally, we'd expect mailgun to…

                          I'd love to see a WordPress plugin that would allow control of settings and show reporting while allowing the site to use Mailgun to send emails from it's domain.

                          • Enforce domain specific credentials

                            Currently I'm able to send e-mails from one domain using another domains SMTP credentials. It would enhance security to enforce that credentials are needed for the specific sending domain.

                            • fully support non-ascii characters when attaching filenames

                              Currently mailgun API does not officially support non-ascii characters in filename attachments. There are workarounds but it would be nice if it was supported natively.

                              • Add a Date Range Filter on the Analytics Page

                                Currently, we are only able to filter information on the "Analytics" page by day. It would be very beneficial to be able to filter by a date range for our data under the analytics page in a similar fashion to how the "Reporting" filter works (30, 60, 90, or custom day range).

                                • Allow CNAME chaining for tracking opens, clicks.

                                  Currently my app (email.mydomain.com) CNAME is pointed to mailgun.org, but when I have my users' domains point to email.mydomain.com, it does not accept this as a chain CNAME.

                                  It would be nice to validate this so it can be whitelabel.

                                  • Provide an ability to delete accepted messages

                                    While developing an application that is accepting POSTs from Mailgun, I often develop a backlog of messages that have failed and that Mailgun continues to re-post. Would be nice to be able to filter in the logs and have an option to delete accepted messages that are "in queue."

                                    • IP Prewarming in a Pool / Distribute Load between IPs in a specific way

                                      Currently its pretty hard to add an additional ip to an existing pool that sends couple of millions emails per month, because the new ip will be 'cold' and considered spam. To avoid this it would be great if we could specify the load of every ip in the pool in percent. So adding a new ip but giving it only 3-5% of the traffic would reduce the risk and allow the ip to warm slowly.

                                      • Easy Forward User to User Emails with masked Email Adresses

                                        Some Apps allow User to User communication via Email (example LinkedIn). These App creates virtual Email Addresses to hide the original Email Address, either for the purpose of privacy or for intersecting the communication via store() or forward() routes, either to save the conversation in the system or simply to forward the email to the real address.

                                        Where this works great for Emails without attachments, we could save some expensive roundtrips with emails that have attachments.
                                        In that case all attachments have to be downloaded first to the App Server and then send to mailgun again, although mailgun has these…

                                        • Have log of JSON for email validation.

                                          It would be nice to have the JSON returned for email validation stored in a log file so I can grab it (again) if something happens to my query. This wouldn't be such a big deal but since there are cost involved in each call, it would be great having a backup.
