Support » Plugin: WP Mail SMTP by WPForms » Got it working with ZoHo account

  • This review was about a different plugin WP SMTP
    But I think at ZoHo you need always a Application-specific password

    Took me some time to discover how to resolve the problem ‘authenticate your SMTP account’.
    So, for the girls/boys who encounter the same problem:
    Login to your ZOHO account / My account / (enter your password) Security / App Passwords .
    (Application-specific passwords are passcodes that give applications like email clients permission to access your Zoho Mail.)
    Create new Password / Enter the app name / then click Generate.
    Save the shown password to a safe place and use THIS password in the plugin. So do not use your password of your ZoHo account.
    Pfffff took me some days to find this out

  • Hi @sabinevanerp,

    Thank you for sharing your experience. Yes, Zoho and other SMTP providers such as Google, Outlook, Yahoo, etc. require an App-specific password especially when your account has two-factor authentication enabled.

    Have a good one! šŸ™‚
