Support » Plugin: FluentSMTP - WordPress Mail SMTP, SES, SendGrid, MailGun Plugin » Impressive feature set, would be perfect with more detailed logging.

  • There are many SMTP plugins out there, and “FluentSMTP – WordPress Mail SMTP, SES, SendGrid, MailGun Plugin” has an impressive feature set, most noticeably built in logging, and a promise of being free forever, which is nice, obviously.

    Being updated to support PHP 8, and having a rather nice UI imo, it’s a good solution for safer and more stable SMTP delivery. I have not tried the other connection types (mailgun, sendgrid etc), but I can only assume they work as good or better as SMTP

    My only lasting grief, is that the logging is not as detailed as I could wish. I’d like to examine the entire SMTP communication traffic in some cases, when troubleshooting delivery issues or false spam positives. The current logging, mostly, just reveals whether the mail was delivered or not, and that’s not as helpful as it potentially could be.

    Thanks for the automatic log purging!

    About the only big thing it needs now is “Fall Back” for SMTP service.

    Meaning, for what ever reason your primary connection isn’t working maybe for just a few moments, the plugin will automatically try your fall back service.

    Our experience using another outstanding SMTP plugin this has come in handy more than once, the primary SMTP couldn’t send, and the SMTP plugin instantly reverted to other Fall Back and the email was sent. I would highly recommend this on ANY eCommerce site or any site where your site is dependent heavily on sending emails.
