Support » Plugin: WP Gmail SMTP » “Error” Message appears as admin notification

  • WIS


    I kept seeing the admin notification (see below) even after I successfully connect to my web application.

    “Gmail SMTP plugin cannot send email until you enter your credentials in the settings and grant access to your web application.”

    I looked into your code and it checks for option table for “gmail_smtp_options” but the row does not exist in the database.

    The plugin works great but the admin notice is distracting and I cannot dismiss it.

    I tried that.

    I even went one step further and delete the plugin and reinstall a fresh plugin. But I still see the admin notification after I have verify the access.

    Same here, so I’m following. This has been the case since I set it up months ago. I just let it go because everything was working.

    Also, I’m on DreamHost, where I’ve found there are some permissions issues with plugins, so I’m curious if the other person is, too.



    cspaceb, nice to know that I am not the only one imagining this problem.

    I am on A2Hosting and I am behind CloudFlare firewall. I am whitelisted so I don’t think that is an issue.

    This problem just started on my installation.

    I removed the “From Email Address” field as I wanted that value set upstream by Gravity Forms. E-mail continues to send fine; I just get the annoying warning.

    Workaround: I modified the function function is_gmail_smtp_configured() in the plugin’s main.php. I just commented out where it checks the config for the from_email value.

        if(!isset($options['from_email']) || empty($options['from_email'])){
    //        $smtp_configured = false;

    Everything continues to work but of course updating the plugin in the future will break the fix.

    This is ann0ying, hilarious in a way as it’s ridiculous that it’s not been addressed by the developer.
