Messages from gmail users are not send (2 posts)

    I am using your plugin for a very long time now and it was very useful. But lately I've noticed that messages from gmail users are not send. Minding that many people around the world use gmail it is quite a big problem. Other emails looks like they're working fine. Is it only on my blog or others are affected too? Please help.

    Best regards

    See below copied from WordPress Codex - http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_Troubleshooting#E-mailed_passwords_are_not_being_received

    Ensure Proper Return Address is Used

    By default, the WordPress mailer fills in the From: field with wordpress@yourdomain.com and the From: name as WordPress. This is fine if this is a valid e-mail address.

    For example, if your real e-mail is wordpress@yourdomain.com, your host should pass the email on for delivery. It will probably send your mail as long as yourdomain.com is setup to send and receive mail, even if wordpress is not a valid mail box.

    But if you set you real email as the From: address and it’s something like wpgod@gmail.com, the mail may not send because gmail.com is not a domain handled by the mail server.
