Don’t know if your WordPress installation is sending emails? Use this simple plugin to find out. It will send a simple test email to an email address of your choice, and to help troubleshoot any problems you can also override the custom headers wth your own values.
Please be aware this is a very early version of the plugin, and with so many people having trouble with email I expect this plugin to cause lots of questions and feature requests.
- Why did you write this plugin?
Someone using one of my other plugins had trouble with emails not being sent. I knocked this together to help him (and anyone else).
Besides, a plugin should have usage described. Where should I look for the dialog to send the email to myself? Even in case it were to use a popup that could not escape a user's notice, usage still should be described. Otherwise, how can I be sure it is NOT WORKING?
