Due to the installation of some starter templates, this SMTP plugin and a forms plugin from the same developer were installed. Initially, there were some concerns, such as the plugin stating certain SMTP services were only supported in the Pro version. No problem there, since it is easy to work around that using the generic SMTP options.
Recently, the owner of a site running WP Mail SMTP asked me about some emails that *should* have been sent. Since the free version of the plugin does not log emails, there was little I could tell them. I recalled my experience on a few other sites running this plugin where the emails seemed to suddenly stop sending and I had to go in and simply save the same settings again to restore functionality.
While researching this problem, I learned from many other users that WP Mail SMTP sometimes just quits sending emails. If you open the settings (and just save the same settings) it tends to work for some time but eventually fails again. So it wasn’t just me.
I searched for a new solution and came across the plugin Post SMTP Mailer/Email Log. Emphasis on LOG. This works perfectly! We could immediately see that the configuration/setup worked and that the email was successfully received by Amazon SES. So far, everything has worked exactly as it should.
