LH Email

Description

This plugin allows you to send html formatted email message directly from your WordPress dashboard. These emails are based on the posts you create within WordPress. Optionally you can add content at the top and bottom.

These emails are formatted based on a template you can modify both by adding widgets and by editing the template in your theme or child theme.

Why is my email being sent to spam?

WordPress by default send its email from the servers mail functionality. This probably won’t match you domain so the emails end up in spam. I suggest you install a WordPress smtp plugin or use an email provider like Mandrill.
