Its quite straight forward setup to receive email through mailgun. Just you have to do these two things : Make sure your mx record points to mailgun.

Find count of day differance between two dates

In golang there is no direct way [ atleast i don't know ] to find count of differance in days between two days. So, I do it the way might every one does [ except who has already faced this ]. Partial Solution What I does is just find out duration differance of two dates using sub function. differance := time.Now().Sub( startTime ) daysCount := int(differance.Hours() / 24.0) It might seem ok. But, there is a problem with this solution.  Let assume, startTime is 2018-02-02 23:59:59 .   In this case daysCount will be 0 on next day [ 2018-02-03 ] until time is 2018-02-03 23:59:59. Perfect Solution Simple solution is just normalize startTime to starting of that date . normalizedTime := time.Date(startTime .Year(),startTime .Month(),startTime .Day(), 0, 0, 0, 0, time.Local) differance := time.Now().Sub( normalizedTime ) daysCount := int(differance.Hours() / 24.0) normalizedTime is startTime but at starting of date. So, Now we are substracting time from  2018-02-02 00:00:00 inst
