Facing problems with Moodle emails – Share your ideas in this forum thread #Moodle

Do you face problems with emails delivery in Moodle? Are you also among those newbies who are still finding ways for reliable email delivery with Moodle?

Here is a good news for all of you new Moodle site adopters – Moodle HQ team is rethinking over email delivery settings with Moodle and will give it a more clean and concise options for setting it up.

Moodle Emails notifications and reliable delivery can be a big trouble for new corporations, schools and universities. Even the Moodle tracker itself contains a lot of issues for problems related to email notifications. During the MoodleMoot USA 2016 (#MootUS16), Jamie Kramer from Elearning Experts LLC, delivered a presentation about – “Moodle Email Problems and Solutions“.

Proposed Solution:

Dan Poltwaski – Core developer Moodle HQ, started an important discussion about the proposed solutions in the way how Moodle delivers emails. The proposed solution as per Dan is:

  • We will remove the current ‘Only send from no reply address’ flag.
  • We will replace this with a list of allowed email domains  (which defaults to none)
  • We will start delivering all emails from the no reply address at all times, unless the email is  in this list of allowed domains 
  • We’ll update the From name to include a ‘via Moodle’ (much like other websites do), to prevent address book confusion when sent via no-reply
