Mail gun permanently disabled my account after I created it for the first time

My Mailgun account was first temporarily disabled. I contacted the support team and they asked me my purpose of creating it. I told them it’s for discourse forum…then I got the following response from them:

“ Hello ,

Thank you for contacting Sinch Mailgun Support.

Please what can I do and any alternative hosting?


If you’re setting up a new server it’s possible it’s been given an IP address that’s on a spam blacklist due to spamming in the past. They will block you because they suspect that spamming will continue, despite the address being owned by a different person. Or there could be a bunch of other reasons why they might not like you or your site.

You could try Mailjet - They work OK from Discourse for me, although depending on your email volumes you might find other providers who are cheaper.

Digital ocean. But I need the email server to complete the setup

Strange. I’ve not had mailgun disable anyone’s account that way.

I would try out one of the other services recommend in this topic.
