Integration of Alegra and BulkGate


Alegra is an open source, fully configurable and scalable customer-facing portal spution. It is developed by Alegra Software, a company that focuses on the development of this platform. The company was founded in 2001, with the goal to develop a user-friendly and easy to use portal. The project has been funded by a number of funding sources, including the European Commission, BNP Paribas and several venture capitalists. The software itself is written in PHP and supports MySQL as its database back end.[1]


BulkGate is an open source bulk email gateway. It allows users to send emails from multiple accounts at once via SMTP, sendmail or any other method. It is designed as an SMTP server which should be used in conjunction with other software that uses SMTP to send mail, such as mailing list managers and groupware clients. BulkGate is written in Java and is distributed under the GNU General Public License.[2]

Integration of Alegra and BulkGate

Integrating BulkGate is a very simple process when using Alegra as a portal spution. This integration can be achieved using the built-in Email Gateway module, which is part of the Alegra product. This module can be enabled via the configuration file by adding the fplowing lines:

[emailgate] enable=yes type=smtp host=localhost port=25 logfile=/tmp/emailgate.log subject=html [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] smtpport=465

By enabling this module and pointing it to your BulkGate installation (which will be described in the next section), you are able to send mails through BulkGate to your users. The benefit of this integration is that you can define both who can send mails through the BulkGate module, as well as what content they can send. As long as they meet these requirements, they are allowed to send mails to your users through BulkGate. You will be able to see this information in your administration interface.

Benefits of Integration of Alegra and BulkGate

Integrating these two products together has some benefits for you as a user of Alegra. First of all, you do not need to install a separate bulk email system, which saves you money on hardware and maintenance issues. Secondly, the integration makes it easier for you to know how much email traffic you are going to receive from your users, as well as more insight into how these users interact with your service and how many mails they actually send out. Depending on what you use the email functionality for in your application, these benefits may be very important for you.

The process to integrate Alegra and BulkGate may seem complicated and intimidating. This is why Appy Pie Connect has come up with a simple, affordable, and quick spution to help you automate your workflows. Click on the button below to begin.
