How does Edit Flow send notification emails? Does it use PHP’s mail() function, or wp_mail()?
The reason I ask is that there’s been an ongoing issue with emails from wordpress not being sent out if the server host (dedicated datacenter server) and the email server (Google Apps), differ. Something about the PHP mail() function not working if the server WordPress is on doesn’t have a matching email account on it and return paths.
The general solution has been to install a plugin (WP Mail SMTP) that allows WordPress to use an external SMTP account (smtp.gmail.com). Now emails from WordPress are working, except ones from Edit Flow. Apparently plugins must call the wp_mail() function instead of mail() or it won’t work.
