    Thank Me Later is relying on PHPMailer directly, rather than wp_mail. This is so the plugin can send HTML email, and means your server needs to support the mail() function. I will not be fixing this issue, since it is too complex of a change. My suggestion is to move to better host that allows you to send email.


    Hello Brendon,

    This issue is not only related with hosting. If you have to send a lot of emails, using sendgrid, mailchimp, etc can reduce many problems (mails going to spam, IP bans, etc).

    Is it so difficult to solve this issue?

    Unfortunately, I don’t have time to look at the issue. You should be able to configure your local mail server to relay to an external SMTP server (at SendGrid) for example, if deliverability is your concern. As far as I know, WordPress doesn’t come with out-of-the-box support for SMTP configuration, and I don’t have time to make Thank Me Later compatible with this configuration.
