Transaction Email Sending API

For transactional emails (Password reset, notification of a wiki page update, etc.): Let's pick a library that permits to connect to various email sending providers. And some also support sending newsletters.

Why?

Because sending emails via Tiki (sendmail) or SMTP can cause issues. Slow delivery, lost emails, etc. Basically because there is so much spam, legitimate projects suffer. The good news is that many services offer free to use entry level services (To promote the service so you upgrade to paid service as your needs grow). The bad news is a loss of data privacy

Future features

Let's start simple but keep in mind that we want to one day do things like:

  • A Tiki site admin should be able to register to more than on mail service and decide which service is used. Ex.:
    • Stay within plan for one provider.
      • If I am allowed 200 emails per day with one provider, send the others with another, or the next day
      • We can stay within free limits :-)
    • Password resets should go with provider X but wiki page changes should go with Y
  • A/B testing to see which service works better

Requirements

  • Available on Packagist
  • Has several providers
  • Active

Other notes

  • These services offer more advanced features like click-through tracking. scheduled delivery, bounce handling, etc. Some, most or all of these features, we will want (sooner or later) to do via Tiki so we retain autonomy. We don't want to lose a feature because we switch from one provider to another.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
