Sending Emails As Admin
Consider a scenario where you provide a service based on Syncrify and your users use SyncriBox
large files from users on the Internet. For example, you have a user whose email address is
. Assume this user
needs to send a large file to
John can use SyncriBox to send a large file and Syncrify will generate an email that is sent to Jane containing a download link. However, if the sender of
this email is
, Google's SMTP server will consider this a forgery because your network is not supposed to send emails
where sender belongs to yahoo.com.
In more technical terms, SPF as well as DMARC will fail and you risk getting your public IP getting listed on an RBL server.
To solve this problem Syncrify offers an option called Use admin's email as sender
available under Email Configuration
. When this box is checked,
Syncrify will use the administrator's email address in
value of smtp envelope. The actual
header is not modified, allowing Jane to see John's
address in the email client. By changing the MAIL FROM in the envelope, SPF check won't fail and hence DMARC will pass as well.
