hello Joseph II with the clickfunnels

00:10

customer education team today we are

00:13

going to review how you can add a

00:14

mailgun integration here in clickfunnels

00:17

so this will be an smtp integration

00:20

which will allow you to send emails

00:23

through your action etics account and it

00:26

will allow you to set up funnel

00:27

automations to send out automated emails

00:30

if you don’t already have a mailgun

00:33

account you’re gonna want to pause this

00:34

video and set that up first

00:37

otherwise you may also want to if you

00:38

are available SMTP integrations now for

00:43

this setup we will need to set up some

00:45

records in our domain registry we will

00:49

be using the clickfunnels domain as an

00:51

example if your domain is hosted in

00:53

another registrar the setup will be very

00:56

similar however the actual step by step

00:59

may be slightly different so I’d

01:01

encourage you to watch this video and

01:03

you should be able to compare it to your

01:05

own account and hopefully get this set

01:07

up accordingly let’s go up to the top

01:10

view and head to our domains tab and

01:13

just to get started we’re gonna use this

01:16

first domain we’ll click on edit and

01:20

before we actually happen to the zone

01:22

editor let’s go over to mailgun and get

01:24

started

01:25

so the first thing you’re going to want

01:27

to do in your mailgun account is to

01:30

scroll down to you’re sending domains

01:31

and click add new domain you will be

01:35

asked to actually enter your domain name

01:37

here and for this example since we

01:40

already have one added we’re gonna just

01:42

hop into it now you’ll see here I

01:45

entered the domain here with an MG in

01:47

front of it this recommended you set up

01:50

a sub domain in this fashion

01:51

so rather than wwo main com go ahead and

01:55

click MgO domain comm this will make the

01:58

initial setup easier now go down to the

02:03

domain verifications and DNS you’ll see

02:06

on my end most of this is checked out on

02:08

your end you won’t have these checkmarks

02:11

yet and this is where you will need to

02:14

go to set this all up so the first thing

02:16

you want to do is set up a couple of txt

02:19

records

02:20

so let’s hop into our clickfunnels

02:23

account domain registry just to go over

02:25

this so from within clickfunnels we’re

02:28

going to click to edit our zone records

02:30

and any domain registries should have a

02:32

similar process you’re going to choose

02:35

to add a txt record and you’re going to

02:39

just give this first one mg now this is

02:42

assuming you went with the mg

02:43

02:45

strategy and we’ll jump back into

02:48

mailgun just to go over why it is set up

02:50

this way

02:51

so back in mailgun let’s take a closer

02:53

look at this first record you see a txt

02:55

record mg mydomain.com

02:59

I’m just gonna copy the mg and that’s

03:02

why I put it over there

03:04

and since we already have that entered

03:06

I’m gonna actually just copy the value

03:08

here and then we’re gonna hop over to

03:11

clickfunnels and then we’re gonna do a

03:13

similar thing for this we’re gonna just

03:15

take the first part and just take the

03:19

whole value but let’s go and paste this

03:21

value just so you can see what that

03:22

looks like so back here we have our name

03:25

paste the value and then save and then

03:31

once this load we’re gonna go back down

03:35

span these records again and add another

03:40

txt record so txt now let’s hop back to

03:48

mailgun to graph these so again for this

03:51

first part we just grabbed the first

03:53

part of it we don’t include the actual

03:55

domain and then for the value we paste

03:59

the entire value from mailtime which in

04:02

the case of this one is a very long

04:04

value but let’s go ahead and save it

04:10

and now we can review our records here

04:13

and we actually have a few more records

04:16

to add you see that long go record was

04:19

added to you the next records are going

04:21

to be the next two records are going to

04:23

be MX records so let’s set that up then

04:26

let’s hop back over to mailgun now in

04:29

your own account if you’re not using

04:31

clickfunnels for your domain you may be

04:33

able to set this priority and

04:35

clickfunnels you don’t actually have to

04:37

set the priority so the reason you’re

04:39

not gonna see that here is simply

04:41

because the option doesn’t exist you’ll

04:43

see there are two records MX AML gun dot

04:45

org and mxb dot mailgun org we’re gonna

04:49

have to add both of those as MX records

04:52

so let’s go do that now one important

04:54

thing to keep in mind as you’re adding

04:56

these MX records is that the name field

04:58

actually remains blank so we’re gonna

05:00

hop right over to the value put in M

05:03

XAML gun org and then simply hit save

05:09

and then we’re going to do the same

05:13

thing with the mxb I’m actually gonna

05:18

save myself a little bit of time by

05:21

simply pasting the MxA again and

05:25

changing it to MX B and then hitting

05:29

save and we have one more record to go

05:33

before we can enter the information and

05:36

click funnels so the final record we

05:38

need is just the email dot M G dot

05:41

05:43

so let’s go ahead and copy that and the

05:46

value is just gonna be mail gun org so

05:50

back here we go to our zone record want

05:53

to add a cname type put in the name and

06:01

then the value mailed on dot org and

06:05

then simply save

06:10

now from you most of this can be handled

06:13

directly from clickfunnels we’re gonna

06:14

go up to our settings here click on SMTP

06:18

settings and you’re going to set up

06:23

email sending once you’re in here you

06:28

set up a new SMTP just put in the name I

06:31

like to keep it simple and just put

06:33

exactly what it is put your name in here

06:36

from name from email if I could spell it

06:44

properly then you put in the SMTP server

06:48

and your server here should always be

06:52

smtp.mail.yahoo.com ale gun real quick

07:09

where we can review this so based on the

07:12

information we entered our default login

07:15

it’s gonna be postmaster @mg

07:18

mydomain.com so let’s copy that and then

07:22

we’re gonna come back here for the

07:24

password as well which I’ll keep

07:25

off-screen but just keep in mind that

07:28

that is where you’ll retrieve your

07:29

password right up top here under your

07:31

domain information so I’ll paste in the

07:34

user name and then I’ll paste in the

07:38

password finally for the SMTP domain

07:42

we’re going to take our full domain we

07:44

verified in mail gun so I’m just gonna

07:47

copy that from here and paste it in here

07:50

for your domain here this is going to be

07:53

one you have registered in clickfunnels

07:56

so you will need at least something set

07:58

up and clickfunnels this doesn’t need to

08:00

be one that you actually purchase

08:02

through clickfunnels is in my case can

08:04

be one that you’ve integrated from

08:06

elsewhere as you can see here so let’s

08:09

actually select that one just for

08:10

example then you need to put in your

08:12

full address city state zip country and

08:16

then you will want to insert your footer

08:18

and you’ll find in the article a helpful

08:21

guide on how to format that you know I

08:23

actually do

08:24

had and paste that in here then you just

08:27

do like the weather this is your default

08:29

smtp or not once you are done you can go

08:33

ahead and save your SMTP settings and

08:35

from here forward you will be able to

08:37

send with mailgun I know this video was

08:40

a little bit longer than the usual

08:41

helpdesk video but we did want to make

08:44

sure to go through this step-by-step so

08:46

that you could have it completely set up

08:48

but again if you have any questions

08:50

always feel free to click the get help

08:52

button in the bottom right corner of

08:54

your screen until next time happy funnel
