Troubleshooting Welcome Email Delivery
Problem: Someone buys a product from your site, and you can see in the DAP “Manage Users” page that they have been added as a user, but that user never gets an email with their login/password. All they get is the confirmation email from the payment processor.
You want to know: “How can I get my users to automatically receive a “welcome” email with their Id/password” from DAP?”
If the users got added and the user status is “A” in the DAP manage users page, but the user did not receive welcome email with their ID/Password, it could because:
No Thank-You Email Setup
[NOTE: In newer versions of DAP, “Thank-You Email” is now being called as “Welcome Email”. So wherever you see “Thank-You” below, please note that it’s the same as “Welcome”]
For that product, you did not set the ‘thank-you’ email subject/body in the DAP Products Page.
Select the product in DAP products page and set the thank-you message content as shown below.
Thank-You Email Setup, But Still No Email
You have set up the thank-you email message, but the email still did not get delivered.
The only time the Welcome Email is sent, is when a user is given access to a Product for the very first time. If you are trying to add a user to a product, and the user already has been given access to the product, then it won’t send out the welcome email the second (or subsequent) time(s). So make sure the user you’re testing with does not already have access to that Product. If she does, then remove access to the product before testing again.
Go to DAP Setup > Config > Basic and make sure the “Admin Email” is set to an ’email address that resides on your domain/hosting account where DAP is installed’ instead of say a gmail or hotmail or yahoo email address. Now, if you have done everything in terms of making sure there’s no reverse DNS lookup issues with your host but if there are still users who do not receive emails (and the email is not in their spam folder) :
Here’s what you can do:
1) Setup dap to generate default password (dap setup -> config -> advanced) and instruct users to change their password right after they log in.
2) Set up an autoresponder email in DAP to drip day 1 with the merge tag for login id/password. So even if the thank-you email is not delivered right after purchase, when the cron runs at the top of the hour, it will send out the id/password again.. in case they did not receive it the first time.
You can have dap connect to 3rd party smtp service like AuthSMTP.com to send out all autoresponder/broadcast emails for better email deliverability.
BTW, if you have tried everything and still the emails are not getting delivered or is landing in the SPAM folder, then please checkout our documentation on troubleshooting email delivery here:
Thank you — that fixed my problem.
