Allows you to configure and use a SMTP server (such as Gmail) for sending emails.
I have not tested the plugin with a WordPress version lower than 3.0 so it might or it might not work. You can give it a try.
Said plugin has to use the WordPress default
wp_mail() function when sending emails in order for SMTP to work.
Use the following settings:
Host: smtp.gmail.com Port: 465 Encryption: SSL Username: gmail address Password: gmail password
