E-Mails Sent From PHPMailer. Why? (6 posts)

    Noticed that user registration from wp-signup.php sends e-mails (confirmation, and user details) from PHPMailer 5.1 (phpmailer.sourceforge.net).

    Why does it use PHPMailer instead of the built in wp_mail()? This is a problem for us, since we use the SMTP plugin wp-mail-smtp.

    Can we request this fix?

    Perhaps this plugin will help? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/

    dgilmour,

    We are using that plugin; see " This is a problem for us, since we use the SMTP plugin wp-mail-smtp."

    But that plugin only catches requests to wp_mail(), but since randomly some e-mails are being sent via PHPMailer, they aren't feed through.

    Sorry, now understand.

    Any idea why they decided to use PHPMailer instead of their own wp_mail(), was this just laziness or old code?

  6. I think wp_mail uses phpMailer, if I'm reading this right: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3862
