what’s the best way to handle transactional emails (in connection with magento)?
A colleague of mine has already written a message in slack a few days ago:

we’ve noticed that the registration mails all link to the default magento path. What is the best practice to redirect them to VSF?

That’s good idea and we don’t support this feature. I belive the redirect on proxy before magento is one of the solutions probably the easiest one to implement

@pkarw (Core Team) how do live projects solve this issue? That isn’t anything new… even when adding a proxy, we have to create the corresponding routes in vsf

Currently most of them leaves it to Magento defaults
Because @pkarw wrote that most people link to magento default, I tested some live implementations (klebefieber.de & majorrum.com) and the password reset link goes back to a magento with the standard luma theme.
Even if it’s not so nice, you can still do it. But after a user has reset his password, he is automatically logged in to the magento and that destroys the whole experience of VS, especially if you leave the theme with the standard magento theme.
For example, we did a lot of editing in the customer account for the user’s orders, if transaction mails are now sent by magento and the user lands in the magento, we would have to edit it there as well.
I am aware that one possibility would be to revise the complete mail logic and possibly even implement an own service for mails via VS API, but that sounds like a lot of work.
I have to admit that we really didn’t consider the mail topic when we’ve deciding for using VS, therefore here this post in the forum, maybe there is someone who has already dealt with it or we could join forces to solve this together.
Thanks for your help,
