Support » Plugin: Disable Emails » Does what it says – effectively

  • I have used this plugin in a couple of situations.

    The first is when I have to spin up a development version of a live site for testing. When this is done for testing something like data import on a version of the live site’s data (such as verifying certain user data), we can’t have emails going out to those users. In the past, I had generally just blanked the user emails or put in a dummy email. But that doesn’t allow you to do certain testing such as updating data on the user profile screen because it would trigger an email error. Using this plugin now allows me do full testing on a dev site with full user data without fear of emailing the users.

    The other place I have found it useful is on demo sites. As a plugin developer, there are times that I have to set up a demonstration site for a plugin. Using Disable Emails makes it possible to do that without having the demo site sending out emails.

    It has definitely earned a permanent place in my toolbox.
