Reconfigures the wp_mail() function to use SMTP instead of mail() and creates an options page to manage the settings.
If other plugins you're using are not coded to use the wp_mail() function but instead call PHP's mail() function directly, they will bypass the settings of this plugin. Normally, you can edit the other plugins and simply replace the
mail( calls with
wp_mail( (just adding wp_ in front) and this will work. I've tested this on a couple of plugins and it works, but it may not work on all plugins.
No. WordPress 2.7 changed the way options were updated, so the options page will only work on 2.7 or later.
Yes. Use these settings: Mailer: SMTP SMTP Host: smtp.gmail.com SMTP Port: 465 Encryption: SSL Authentication: Yes Username: your full gmail address Password: your mail password
Short answer: maybe.
By all means please contact me to discuss features or options you'd like to see added to the plugin. I can't guarantee to add all of them, but I will consider all sensible requests. I can be contacted here: http://www.callum-macdonald.com/code/wp-mail-smtp/
