Support » Plugin: Gmail SMTP » Issues with setting up the plugin

    Eventually got this to work – the problem was the ‘Authorized Redirect URI’. Setting up the GMail API permissions with OAuth is difficult and the help for this plugin might need to be a bit more clear about the ‘Authorized Redirect URI’. Also user feedback on the help file shows that others have had this problem hence this comment.

    If you are setting up OAuth make sure you get the Authorized Redirect URI given by the plugin registered on Google otherwise you will lose a lot of time as I did.

    This is not the place to promote the WP Mail SMTP plugin. It’s clearly explained in the documentation that you need to copy the URL shown in the setting and paste into the ‘Authorized Redirect URI’ field.

    Agree with @naa986.

    The plugin came with full instructions.

    The user @clinton101 doesn’t know how to properly implement all the steps.
