Easy and very good
By , for WP 3.9.1

I was wondering what emails WP sent out. We did use Mailjet and there we could see what mails were sent. Then we switched to Amazon SES (cheaper and more professional), but it didn't have the list of mails that were actually sent.

At that point we needed a mail log tool that showed us what mails were sent and to who.

I found this little plugin that does the job perfect. It's very light weight and does the job very nice.

Then some mails were not delivered by Amazon SES, even though they were in the logging. At that point I needed to know with what e-mail address those messages were sent. This is because we authorized only certain email address in SES to send mail.

So for $15 I got the pro version and I saw that the failing mails were actually with another sender mail address. Authorized that address in SES and problem fixed.

Thank you for this easy, simple and light-weight e-mail log plugin.

It just works!

It works as expected, and it's so useful for me to control if the correct emails were sent to my customers on my e-commerce site.

Provide useful information on system generated emails
By , for WP 3.5.1

I have an interactive driven website and a lot of system emails are generated by the system as a result of this. The plugin Email Log provides me with the necessary details to keep track of emails sent by the system. The latter allows me to frequently check if everything still goes as planned.

The thing does its job for me; obviously an option to check the content would be some improvement, but the plugin is useful as it is, too

Great Plugin tool especially with the new feature TO, CC and BCC
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is fantastic tool to make sure that you know wordpress is sending out mail. This also gives visibility into if your wordpress has been compromised by spammers/hackers or wordpress sending out unnecessary e-mails to your user, thus giving your site a bad name. The new feature e-mail addon also allows your to be TO, CC and BCC into the e-mail this way you can ensure you can use an independent e-mail address is receiving the same mail your user is. This plugin totally rocks and shows what wordpress has lacked for so long. Great vision by the plugin author! Many thanks!

Good general logging but bad for getting the RESULT of a mail action
By , for WP 3.5.1

Not sure I quite get the real point of logging emails if you don't log the actual send result. Kind of pointless in my opinion as it could give you a false idea that the mails are being sent, when they actually are not.
