Good work @twisted1919

1. Please is there any future feature of setting PCNTL per Customer Groups instead of Global?

2. backend/tracking-domains/, Can we use ".htaccess" to point instead of using "DNS CNAME record" just like the way Mumara "Mask Domain" works using both "DNS CNAME record" and ".htaccess".
"DNS CNAME record" record seems not working for me while trying to set the tracking domains.

More strength to your elbow bro.

Keep Mailwizz flowing ;)

That will never be doable because of the way pcntl works, unfortunately :-s

Unfortunately this is technically impossible. CNAMES are a DNS feature. We do not do rewrite here to use .htaccess.

When using cname only does not work, you can add a redirect pointing to the mwz directory. Easiest is to use a parked domain, which does both in one ;)

When using cname only does not work, you can add a redirect pointing to the mwz directory. Easiest is to use a parked domain, which does both in one ;)
Hi,

1. Aliases "Domain aliases make your website available from another domain name. For example, you can make www.example.net and www.example.org show content from www.example.com."

Aliases is also known as Parked. I have tried it by adding Aliase domain and redirect it to my Mailwizz installation url but didn't work. Though it passes mailwizz tracking verification automatically but after sending a test campaign to my own email address and clicked on one of the links, I got this error message
Not Found

The requested URL /campaigns/lo764ohxsf42a/track-url/al880r43oc834/e354a14c6ef705a1c6e3cef3b0d0bae1e768f81c was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
2. Addon domain: Yea, the only thing that works is the Addon domain method, I added Addon domain pointing to Mailwizz installation folder on same cPanel account. And this works well but it would be nice if we could do a redirection from another Cpanel account where Mailwizz is not installed to a Cpanel account where Mailwizz is installed and make the tracking works.

Redirection doesn't work either parked or direct redirection. Only Addon pointing to Mailwizz Installation folder works.

Thanks

@twisted1919, Quick question, as these updated are related to GDPR and all hard work is done.
as we already have Timewarp feature too is there way to
1. stop emails to subscribers in certain countries like in EU
2. or only send subscribers to certain countries like the USA.

also any update on
does new version working with Hotmail feedback loops?

We don't have these options, GDPR is not about this.
Although, this should be doable if it's a thing lots of people want, i can implement it.

does new version working with Hotmail feedback loops?
Yes, it should work, we made adjustments to the parser.

If done right, it works. You have to do the parking from within WHM, then it works very well (even with domains on another server, though that needs to be allowed in Tweak Settings).

Oh, I just noticed now it works perfectly via WHM, I was able to park a subdomain and it works perfectly but unfortunately parking a subdomain isn't available via each user Cpanel account. Only via WHM.

Do you notice that?

Thanks for the help once again ;)
