i’m trying to use mailinabox as my SMTP service with Gmass.co
and as you know Gmass only works with Gmail Accounts so how can i send using my mailinabox MSTP service and add Gmail account as my sender email and use Gmass
i tried to add my Gmail account to my mailinabox Server but it didn’t work at all and i can’t get the 200 OK with any SMTP tester
and the reason why i want to use Gmass with mailinabox SMTP server is that Gmass and my Gmail deliverability is unmatched like 99.9% inbox rate and i even tested it With Sendgrid and it works just perfect so i don’t want to relay on Sendgrid cause they are horrible
so i want to have my SMTP server using mailinabox for sure and Gmass
that’s the perfect Combination if there is anyone looking for a better solution you won’t find any trust me on that
so what do you think guys how can i use my Gmail account and add it to mailinabox SMTP service to use my Gmail account as my Sender email ?
Q: I’ve read that Gmail doesn’t allow its users to send “from” their Gmail accounts using outside servers. So how are you getting away with this?
A: It was thought that in early 2017, Gmail was going to update their DMARC policy to reject emails that are “from” a gmail.com address and sent by a non-Gmail server. Here’s some more detail on that prediction. That change hasn’t happened yet though. Here is Gmail’s DMARC record as of 9/28/17 11:24 AM CST:
Gmail’s DMARC policy hasn’t changed yet to reject emails sent “from” gmail.com from a non-Gmail server. Once they change it, p=none will become p=reject.
The above is copied from the Gmass site. It is outdated information as Gmail has changed their dmarc policy. See a current dig:
Well, technically you can send as gmail.com, you’re just guaranteed to end up in spam folders and I suspect after some time, blacklists.
Note that even MiaB ignores p=reject, which unfortunately is the common practice of most admins, so you could still use gmail.com and have email arrive in spam folders even after the change to p=reject.
