Reviews

getting a warning

when I do email testing it display the following warning
Warning: implode(): Invalid arguments passed in /home/#########/public_html/wp-content/plugins/zoho-mail/zohoMail.php on line 315“.

However messages are delivered. give me an advice. can I neglect that warning or should I uninstall this plugin?

Can’t send html emails

If you plan on sending html emails, skip this plugin or it’ll convert your html emails to plain text. Their support is also slow.

Awesome!

Worked like a charm and deserves 5 stars!

Simple to configure if you follow the basic instructions.

I only wish I could customize the signature in the email (without using yet another plugin).

Did exactly what I needed

My hosting company doesn’t allow me to use external mail servers. After a lot of tinkering and other SMTP plugins, this was exactly what I needed.

Be sure to follow the instructions carefully. It feels a little weird going to Zoho’s Developer Console to get this plugin working, but it’s really not too hard if you follow the steps.

Awesome but still lacking

I tested it, it works perfectly fine but it would be nice if you add a personalized from Name field and a personalized image instead of just the From Email. the test email doesnt look like its from the site. Lol
