The DNS Settings page now has a much cleaner design that’s easier to understand. But beyond that, instead of showing inscrutable error codes we now show actionable recommendations on how to fix problems, whenever possible.
Another big change that might be of interest to the email nerds among you is that we no longer ask you to add an SPF record to your DNS Settings. The TL;DR version is that it’s not required to set up an SPF record on your domain for good delivery through Postmark. We take care of that on our side. For a lengthier explanation of this new direction — as well as full overview of the changes we made — have a look at our feature announcement blog post.

Link tracking webhook
Back when we released link tracking for Postmark, we didn’t include a webhook for it, because, well, we didn’t think anyone would need it. Over the past few months a bunch of you have reached out to let us know how you would want to use a link tracking webhook.
The biggest use cases you mentioned were (1) to send this information to third-party aggregators like the good people at Sendwithus, and (2) storing the information in your own databases to build out dashboards for your customers.
Well, we’re happy to say that we just released the link tracking webhook. You can see the documentation on it here. In addition to that we also added an API endpoint to provide a summary for link clicks (this is similar to functionality we already have for open tracking). You can see the details of that addition here.
