MW Configuration with AWS & MailGun

Hello, I'm new with this MW application which is hosted on AWS, learning.. and have few questions about it.

1. Signed Up AWS SES for delivery servers, In case of AWS SES, what if I use regular SMTP configuration for the application, will it handle bounces automatically and fls, or have to add another server for feedback lop & bounce both?

2. In case we use web-API configurations, do i need to add all kind of servers like bounce and feedback?

3. Can we add multiple servers to split the delivery load, I mean.. AWS SES, ElasticMail, Sparkpost, & MailGun all four actually, how do all of them as active servers impact the application, if added as delivery servers?

4. ElasticEmail is working fine as active delivery server, it sent the test mail to SPAMBOX. How to fix it?

5. Added SparkHost api, finished all steps http://prntscr.com/crirej, even added bounce domain [ bounces.mydomain.com ] still getting ERROR while validating the server: http://prntscr.com/criqc2 Same issue while adding MailGun Server. How to fix it?

6. Will my customers have to add DKIM records for their domains?

7. I installed the application, now everytime i hit the url it gets me to customer area [login page]. Check: http://prntscr.com/crbxhh. I want to put the html front end in the root folder and drive the user to login page through button click. Where I have to make changes?

8. What are the basic but important jobs we need to finish to get started. We are following all the knowledge-base articles. Are they enough?

9. How to create the knowledgebase for my customers, is there any source where i can get the topics and contents for reference. I'm missing the MW customer showcase here.

Thank You
Dev

Hey @dev, let's see:
1. Signed Up AWS SES for delivery servers, In case of AWS SES, what if I use regular SMTP configuration for the application, will it handle bounces automatically and fls, or have to add another server for feedback lop & bounce both?
If you will be using SMTP then you have to add bounce and fbl servers.

2. In case we use web-API configurations, do i need to add all kind of servers like bounce and feedback?
Nope, it is handled automatically for you.

3. Can we add multiple servers to split the delivery load, I mean.. AWS SES, ElasticMail, Sparkpost, & MailGun all four actually, how do all of them as active servers impact the application, if added as delivery servers?
Yes you can. Define proper hourly quota and they will be rotated accordingly.

4. ElasticEmail is working fine as active delivery server, it sent the test mail to SPAMBOX. How to fix it?
Mail them, it's their job to land you inbox ;)

5. Added SparkHost api, finished all steps http://prntscr.com/crirej, even added bounce domain [ bounces.mydomain.com ] still getting ERROR while validating the server: http://prntscr.com/criqc2 Same issue while adding MailGun Server. How to fix it?
This happen because you aren't using proper api keys in the app. Please pay attention what keys you are pasting inside the delivery server and make sure the api keys you use have the right permissions.

6. Will my customers have to add DKIM records for their domains?
Nope.

7. I installed the application, now everytime i hit the url it gets me to customer area [login page]. Check: http://prntscr.com/crbxhh. I want to put the html front end in the root folder and drive the user to login page through button click. Where I have to make changes?
You most likely want to install the app in a subfolder/subdomain and direct your users there from the site root.

8. What are the basic but important jobs we need to finish to get started. We are following all the knowledge-base articles. Are they enough?
Yes, the KB has everything you need.

9. How to create the knowledgebase for my customers, is there any source where i can get the topics and contents for reference. I'm missing the MW customer showcase here.
That's on you, you can create a wordpress KB and copy some of the articles from the main mailwizz KB.

Thanks :)

@twisted1919 , how is this (feedback and bounce) handled if it is automatically? I mean, is it a callback from Sparkpost to the Mailwizz instance that called the Sparkpost API? If so, is there a port in the firewall that is required to be open?

This is correct, Sparkpost sends a http request with the data and mailwizz processes it.

Nope, no need since all happens on the standard port 80 which is opened anyway since you have a webserver there.
