[Plugin: WP Mail SMTP] SMTP test e-mail not working with Gmail (7 posts)

    I just recently noticed that none of the e-mails were getting sent out. It worked when I first installed the plugin about a month or so ago. I fiddled with all the settings making sure everything was accurate but can only get it to send out the test e-mail when the mailer option is switched from "Send all WordPress emails via SMTP" to "Use the PHP mail() function to send emails."

    Is this supposed to happen? Anyone else getting this problem?

    What error message are you seeing when you send a test email? You'll probably find the answer in the previously asked questions here.

    Hi, Callum. Great plugin!

    However, when sending the test mail, the received email has From email address as the gmail one used when authenticating, not the one I defined in the settings. The From name stays as defined in settings.

    Bug or feature?

    @arikontiainen: Neither bug nor feature, Gmail changes the from address to stop people sending "forged" emails through their system.

    I am also having this problem, but I wonder if I set things up wrong. Sending to a yahoo address, I get the test email immediately.

    Oh, and test message reports success. No error.
