Support » Plugin: Email Users » SMTP- ready – and sending through another host.

  • Will this plugin allow/be:
    * SMTP-Ready, Can we choose to send mail by SMTP or PHP’s mail() function.
    * Send with your web host, Gmail, any SMTP, like SendGrid, Amazon SES Mandrill,

    (I see that it can be worked to work with Mandrill, but what about the rest?)

    My clients website email is hosted elsewhere and he will want to use one of those accounts to send mail.

    Thank you

    Email Users already supports doing this. All email is sent using wp_mail() so if you install another plugin which implements SMTP or other solution using wp_mail(), you should be good to go. Sending through Gmail is fairly common, this question comes up in this support forum from time to time.

    Ok, so the functionality is not readily available, but can be added with another plugin. I have used some of those plugins on other sites – so that’s fine.

    And sending through gmail is common, and I read that Mandrill is supported. I just want to check that the others I listed would work as well. SendGrid/amazon.

    Thanks again.

    Your awesome with support!

    BTW is there a limit on the amount of emails that can be sent at once. Or is that just for people who have a hosting provider that limits them.

    Inherently there is no limit on sending emails or the number of recipients you can target at one time. There are practical limitations though, if you have a database with 20,000 users the queries Email Users does may time out in some server environments. It is hard to say definitively as there are a lot of variables.

    Email limits (max recipients, numbers of emails per hour), tend to be imposed by web hosting plans. I don’t recall seeing any issues being logged when using a SMTP plugin but I can’t say there haven’t been with 100% confidence.
