Configure Mailgun Inbound Emails

Use Mailgun to route and receive emails in your help desk instance.

See an overview of how inbound emails works, and the supported email service providers here.

This is how the Mailgun Inbound integration works:

  1. Your customer sends a message to [email protected]
  2. Your email client forwards the incoming email from [email protected] to [email protected] (your Full Help's mailbox internal address).
  3. Mailgun Routes catches the incoming email and makes a POST Request to http://www.yourhelpdeskdomain.com/api/v1/mg/receive
  4. Your help desk instance handles the Mailgun Post Request and routes the incoming message to the appropriate conversation, on the appropriate mailbox.
Note: By default, Full Help will use your current system domain as your Mailgun inbound domian. For example, if your system is accessible on desk.mycompany.com, your Mailgun inbound email will be mycompany.com. If you want to use a different domain as your mailgun domain (e.g., mg.mycompany.com), define it in the .env file: MAIL_FORWARD_DOMAIN=mg.mycompany.com.

Configure your Mailgun Domain

  1. On your Mailgun account, go to Domains, then click on Add New Domain.
  2. On Domain Name, enter the domain you want to use on your help desk, then click on Add Domain.
    1. Follow the steps given by Mailgun to verify your domain.
  3. Once the domain is verified,
    1. On your Mailgun account, go to Receiving, then Create Route, on Expression Type set it to "Match Recipient".
    2. On Recipient, add .*@yourmailgundomain.com (replace with the domain you have configured).
    3. On Forward, check the checkbox and add the following URL to the textarea:  http://www.yourhelpdeskdomain.com/api/v1/mg/receive (replace http://www.yourhelpdeskdomain.com with your help desk's domain).
    4. Click on Create Route.
  4. If you haven't done it already, create a Mailbox on your help desk

Once you follow the above instructions, you should start receiving emails on your help desk instance.
