Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some frequently asked questions.

Do I have to setup Mailgun integration to send email?

No, you can send email without configuring Mailgun. However, emails will be send on your behalf and may get flagged as SPAM.

Do you support SendGrid, Mandrill or other transactional email platforms?

No, currently we only support Mailgun. We plan to offer support for SendGrid in the future.

Troubleshooting

If you received an error when saving your Mailgun credentials it means that something is misconfigured with Mailgun, your domain or API Key, or there is a problem with your email address.

First, we recommend double-checking the domain and API Key to ensure that the values are the same as the values configured in Mailgun. This is the most common problem.

Next, double-check that the email used by DailyStory is a valid and working email address. The email address can be found in Admin > Personal Settings.
