The perfect alternative to php mail()
By , for WP 3.8

I have been using this plugin for years. I have tried other WP SMTP plugins, but this is the only one that is a complete drop in replacement for php mail(). Secure, reliable, perfect! Nice to see it updated. Thanks Callum!

I can use the default php instead of SMTP which is great when developing new websites!

HACKING ATTEMPT
By , for WP 3.8

Someone is trying to hack my google account after using this plugin.

This person was using an application such as an email client or mobile device.

We prevented the sign-in attempt in case this was a hijacker trying to access your account. Please review the details of the sign-in attempt:

IP Address: 198.91.81.2
Location: New York NY, United States

If you do not recognize this sign-in attempt, someone else might be trying to access your account. You should sign in to your account and reset your password immediately.

Does What I need it to Do SSL Email
By , for WP 3.6

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.
