I think that if you check your mailgun logs,you’ll see that discourse is sending mail from forum.creativethoughts.us and you have configured mailgun for creativethoughts.us.

You either need to configure mailgun for your Discourse dosmain or edit app.yml yourself and change the mail setting at the bottom of the file.

You can see Discourse Meta for more information. And when I am using a computer,rather than this iPad,I might edit this post.
