Write a Custom Webhook to Handle MailGun events

15 minute read Published:

Create an inexpensive Webhook to handle MailGun events. All you need is some background, a sprinkling of C#, and a few Azure functions.

Wouldn’t you like to know when MailGun fails to deliver an email? Or worse still, when someone complains about an email you sent?

MailGun can notify you about the following events:

  • Clicked
  • Complained
  • Delivered
  • Failed
  • Opened
  • Unsubscribed

There’s just one catch: You have to write your own webhook, then subscribe to those events with your webhook’s URL. If that thought left you cross-eyed, fear not! The reign of cloud computing has made this simpler than it used to be, especially the introduction of functions as a service.

Email Killed the Death.io Star

Not so long ago, in an office so very close, an imperial trooper used the same p@$$w0rd on every single site.

The onus of easy peasy pwnage led to separate and proper passwords for important sites, led to plasticky back pats, led to proud promotions.

But an imperial trooper’s memory banks are only yea big and only hold yea many passwords.
