How to get a email from gmail to Wordpress?

7 replies
hey forum, I'm designing an email for an email marketing campaign, and I want that when a person clicks on a button, open a page in wordpress and capture the email of the person who clicked on it to autofill a form with that email. is possible.?

in my case it's for people to confirm that they want a free value and I would like them not to have to write their mail again.

Thanks

    That is a S P A M tactic and could potentially cause the domain name to be removed from the server by most reputable hosts. Also, most online anti-virus software will alert the website visitor before the website is opened.


    There are blackhat ways to do it and those ways are not recommended if you want to keep your host and avoid black listing the domain.

      Correct me if I am wrong.. the original poster is not asking how to send emails to a Gmail account. The question is better explained like this:

      Step 1: The email campaign sends Gmail subscribers emails that have a link to a wordpress (WP) website.

      Step 2: The subscribers Gmail address is 'captured' and auto-fills a form, so the subscriber does not have to fill the form field for the email address.

      End


      ~~~


      Without the subscriber's prior permission (and that permission must be on file) it is an act of S P A M.

      Most marketers use an alternative way where the subscribers are existing members of the website and are sent to a login page the member's previously submitted email address is auto-filled on for ms. That is just the basics.

      The point is simple. Websites cannot "mine" a visitor's information regardless of the source the visitor used to visit the website.

      This is old news BTW.

    Sounds like you want an auto fill. If you truly want value they will fill in their information multiple times.

    I think you need to install WP Mail SMTP plugin.

    Using a plugin should simply solve the issue, but what Jeffrey has said is something that you should consider as well.

    This makes no sense to me.

    If you are sending a mailing to someone, you already have their email address.

    You could simply pass the email address from a link in the mailing to a PHP script that auto-fills the email address field in the form.

    If you want the user to have to first go to a page and click a link. I think that would still be possible and pretty sure I use to do it, but it was a long time ago and really don't remember 100%. You really want to talk to a PHP programmer, as they should be able to tell you what all is possible.
