Testing emails using the auth0 web dashboard. I send test emails and it says: “Email was successfully sent” but it LIES. Emails are not sent.
I am guessing this is hooking into the same code that the rest of the site uses where the success of the sent email is effectively a secret. If so it would be nice if the dashboard had a piece of text that explains this somehow and encourages the admin to double check the log.
For reference I found out the issue, my SMTP provider was rejecting the request (as seen in the auth0 logs) and the reason was I was trying to send it as a different “from” than the name of the account (which my SMTP provider rejected).
I just wanted to point out I wasted a fair bit of time before concluding that auth0 hadn’t successfully sent the mail which led me to check the logs. I trusted you guys :(. (j/k, I still love you).
