I’ve used this plugin for years and it used to be really great, but now it is terrible – the wizard is now mandatory (which is a much slower process than the manual method, and is buggy too) plus it selects the wrong SMTP methods, and it also doesn’t show all the SMTP options, just the ones that it “thinks” are best for me (and the one that I needed to use wasn’t shown, so I couldn’t proceed…) plus it even added a GoDaddy mailserver into the mailserver field (er, I’m not with Godaddy so wtf….). Worse still, it decided that I’m using my hosting company’s mailserver so it doesn’t offer any option to add the email password. So wizard is completely useless and unusable for me.
To make matters worse, you have now disabled the ability to add all of the data manually – the manual settings page no longer allows me to add the email password, it’s greyed out and is un-editable. It used to take me 2 minutes to set up a site with SMTP using this plugin, yet I’ve just spent 2 hours trying to get this to work to no avail. The end result is that due to a forced email password change due to a server breach, I can no longer update the SMTP plugin to reflect the change, and therefore cannot send or receive any emails.
Please make the settings page fully editable again, and the wizard optional – not everyone wants to use a wizard.
