    Hi @darkpollo,

    Thanks for this message. The Stop Emails plugin works by overriding the WordPress mail sending code. Other plugins, like SendGrid, also override the mail sending code but so they can send the message instead. Their overrides allow the messages to be sent through their service despite the presence of the Stop Emails plugin.

    Based on your report, I’ve added **SendGrid** to the list of Known Incompatible Plugins.

    While I’ve considered adding specific code to target these incompatible plugins one-by-one, ultimately I’ve decided that would be a larger time investment than I can give to this plugin.

    If you or someone else has an improved way to prevent emails from sending (without addressing each other plugin individually), I’d love to hear about it.

    In summary, I like the idea of stopping emails for these incompatible plugins but I’m concerned trying to addressing them individually would turn into a never-ending game of Whac-a-mole.

    I’m sorry I don’t have a more satisfying reply to your request.

    It is perfectly fine.
    I will stop using the Sendgrid plugin as soon as I find another alternative. 🙂
    We need to support plugins that use the standards.

    Thanks for this great plugin!

    Hi @darkpollo,

    Thank you for your understanding and I appreciate your kind words in the review you left.

    I do want to clarify, I don’t think the Sendgrid plugin is doing anything wrong. Unfortunately, the way they are modifying WordPress’s email sending for Sendgrid is incompatible with the way I’m modifying WordPress’s email sending to stop the emails but I wouldn’t call their changes wrong.

    I’m going to mark this topic as closed but please feel free to re-open it or open another issue if you have further questions.

    Thanks again and have a great day.
