    Hi Callum,

    Thanks for your hard work on this plug-in - its really helped me a lot. I've noticed its not been updated in over two years (hasn't really needed to) - but there's now some deprecation notices slipping in. I wondered if I could help maintain the plug-in, or perhaps fork it?

    There are other features I would love to work on including an option for symmetric encryption for improved security. It would be great to contribute back to this plug-in.

    Please let me know if this would interest you, or contact me via: stephenharris.info/contact. If I don't hear from you I'll assume you've moved on to other things, in which case I'll start a fork on GitHub.

    Regardless, thank you for the plug-in!

    Thanks for the heads up, the depreciation notices need my attention, I've been remiss in getting to those. I'll release an update by the end of the year.

    Symmetric encryption is an interesting idea. One of my goals with this plugin is to keep it as light as possible. It really doesn't do anything other than enable some options already provided by WordPress. When I wrote the plugin I figured that eventually the SMTP options would land in core, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

    I'm not sure if adding encryption would make sense in this plugin, it feels like it might be better suited to a separate plugin. I'd be happy to post a link to folks who are looking for such a feature in the plugin description, and be happy to ensure compatibility between the plugins.

    What do you think?
