Reconfigures the wp_mail() function to use SMTP instead of mail() and creates an options page to manage the settings.
This is a good options if you just want to simply enable SMTP and not really worry about anything else.
The main reason I would not use this plugin is because it doesn't encrypt SMTP Auth Information. It leaves it in plain text in the WP admin interface as well as in the DB.
If that doesn't matter to you this is a good option.
Verified with mail.gandi.net:465 - ssl
Easy to configure email
That's what I was searching for!
I was searching for the possibility to change all the SMTP settings.
This plugin has everything you need and it works realy good!
Thanks a lot for development!
This plugin still works with Gmail - as long as your Google account is not set up for 2-step authentication (which I recommend). I suggest setting up a new account just to use with this plugin.
To be frank, I was a little concerned seeing the last update of this plugin was from 2011 over 2 years ago.
But what sold me to try it was the recent positive Reviews. I have installed and working great with using SSL sending to a remote server.
TIP: If you are using an external SMTP service that you make sure the PORT you are wanting to send with, that PORT is OPEN in your server's Firewall PORT is OPEN for OUTGOING. Otherwise you will not connect to the remote server.
Good Plugin! Thanks
I've been using this plug-in for a while now - and on a variety of different sites. Callum has done a great job in building this solid plug-in.
I realise some users are concerned about the security of the passwords - and it would be great to see this addressed, but the plug-in author has set out his reasons for this, and what he has promised he has delivered.
Does exactly what you need but the settings page could do with a redesign.
