  1. Upload the zendy-mailman folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Enter your SMTP info in the plugin settings; from your WordPress dashboard menu, go to Settings > Zendy Mailman


Where do I find my SMTP settings?

Your web host (or email provider) will provide that for you. Note: common SMTP settings are available from the plugin settings screen and on our website.

What does Zendy Mailman do?

Zendy Mailman increases the delivery rate of emails sent by your WordPress site (like contact form notifications and new subscriber alerts). In other words, the emails sent by your WordPress website are less likely to be flagged as spam.

How does Zendy Mailman work?

On shared hosting servers (most WordPress sites are on shared hosting servers) the WordPress mailer often gets flagged as spam or even blacklisted. Zendy Mailman uses SMTP mail instead of relying on the WordPress mailer.

What use cases and third-party plugins have been tested?
  • WordPress email notification: new user registration, comment notification, etc.
  • Gravity Forms plugin
