Reconfigures the wp_mail() function to use SMTP instead of mail() and creates an options page to manage the settings.
when trying to send a test email through SMTP (using gmail SMTP server) it takes about 10 seconds. When using the php_mail() function it takes 30+ seconds to send the test email - while doing this the page is stuck loading. Any idea why this would be?
I had been trying to find the code within to database and couldn't find a functioning plugin to fix my undesired WordPress email issue. This plugin worked perfectly! I used the PHP option and sent a test. I can't believe I spent HOURS trying to fix this when your plugin took me two minutes. THANK YOU!!!
I'm using this on countless sites, it works perfectly and couldn't be easier to set up. If you have any emails being sent through your site, you want it. Period.
If anyone has 'problems' in not receiving emails, it's most certainly not this plugin, they should check their settings and their junk folders.
the SMTP password appears in clear both in the database and on the settings page. This is not acceptable to me.
Then if there is a mistake in the configuration when you do test email it just hangs forever and I had to both delete the plugin AND reboot firefox for my site to be back up.
Really not good!
I found Configure SMTP that works just fine, without any of the 2 issues cited above.
Setup a Digital Ocean VPS with LEMP configuration, and was going to have to learn how to setup mail server...but this make better sense for my situation.
This will save me soo much time too!
Thanks for the wicked community contribution yo!

Does what it says on the box.

Works like charm, it saved my life since my hosting server disable mail() function.
