Hello, I tested the last version and I have a problem with SNS.

I have both, email and HTTPS endpoint subscriptions on my topics, the HTTPS endpoint subscription will not receive any data. @stoo2000 recommends me just leave https subscription only. 

Can someone confirm this to me. Does anyone have an email and https endopoint subscription and does it work?

Thanks.

 

I only have https and not email. I also have separate topics/subscriptions in SNS for bounce and complaints.

Make sure you are subscribing your verified outgoing email address and not domain name only.

Yes, I verified domain and email address.

I have separate subscription for bounce and complaint, and the email notifications reached me correctly.

Adding endpoint for mailbounce, the notifications works for email but not for endpoint. Following the @stoo2000 recommendations I have deleted subscriptions to the mail and left only the endpoint.

Did you subscribe to your SNS topics from the email address or domain name in SES?

I subscribe from domain and from email address. 

So this section in SES for email:

and under your sending email you verified you have the correct SNS topics for HTTPS/endpoint like:

Now originally, I did enable email feedback forwarding also to make sure they are going out. But then I disabled it. If it goes out via email, it should also go out to the endpoint in SNS. then I was checking the bounce table in the database to confirm. 

Your topic in Amazon SES, you have the full endpoint confirmed? One topic for bounce and one for complaints?

Can't really think of anything else, its pretty straightforward.

Yes @AlexWebsites All is correct.

Try to add a email to the bounce and complaint email subscripcions, and test if it works with the endpoint at the same time.

 

So if you send an email from that email address (same as what is used by IPS) to a bad email, you get an email notification that it bounced but NOT an entry into the database via the endpoint, correct? With email feedback forwarding on, If you get an email saying something bounced, then SES is sending and now you just need to figure out why it’s not going to the topic and then to the endpoint.

That’s all I can think of, I’m really not sure why it’s not working for you. It works for me.

Yes, this is my configuration:

endpoint.png.ca4983f3bab17643be8ef5e12fcf14d6.png

Rebotes=bounce

Quejas=complaint

In this case I only receive it by email.

@stoo2000 tested it obtain the same result.

Works for you at the email and at the endpoint at the same time?

No, I don’t use an email protocol. You don’t need that for this app. Try deleting those. Are you using email with some other notification because email feedback forwarding from SES will send you an email on each instance if you need that. You don’t need to set up an email protocol in SNS for this app, only https, unless you need that for some reason.

Right. I deleted the email subscription. I used it for information purposes only.

We use a mail server running mailinabox to send email notifications. Just wondering if you can integrate with plain old SMTP bounce messages too?

You could with a custom handler, something that would read an IMAP inbox and sort through bounce notifications, determine how serious they are and then log the appropriate bounce record in the app. The benefits with using a provider such as SendGrid/SES etc is that they are already part of the feedback loops for spam/abuse and they figure out how serious the bounce is for you.

That sounds very good. If you can build this handler into the plugin, that will be tremendously helpful. The admin can just configure regex filters to fish out the bounce logs.

Emails are a great way to keep members engaged. So we send lots of them to the point where using SendGrid / SES does not make economic sense (huge bills) .

So... if your plugin can work with SMTP and IMAP, I would definitely subscribe.

Hello, I tried to configure the connection to sns but I did not receive any notification in the application, I tried it in many ways but there is no response from the application.
Amazon Aws suspended my service because I have a 16% bounce rate, so I don't know why I buy an application like this if it doesn't work for me. I also created a support topic at https://ipb.silvesterwebdesigns.com/support on 25DIC19 but I never got an answer.

I want the money back!

I just wanted to clarify, what I meant by a 'custom handler' was that something like this would be a one-off project that either you could create or I could for a cost.

I'm sorry I haven't replied in a timely manner. Unfortunately I was out sick over Christmas and New Year. I am looking at your ticket right now and I'll respond there after I have reviewed it.

I can do that, if you can give me the API definition that will talk to the Mail Bouncer plugin.
