    It seems it was removed or renamed? Why is the link not working anymore?

    I agree, I had a message to update it on wordpress, did so and all of a sudden I have this thing called Webriti SMTP Mail which doesn't actually work!

    I found the plugin at http://wp-ecommerce.net/easy-wordpress-smtp-send-emails-from-your-wordpress-site-using-a-smtp-server-2197, and can confirm this still works on version 3.9.1.

    Hopefully someone can shed some light on why every time you search for Easy WP SMTP either on this site or via wordpress itself (or update the plugin) you get the Webriti plugin.

    I think the plugin was removed for whatever reason and the guys with the webriti plugin are the closest match to the old one so I gets shown in searches...

    And another one bytes the dust...

    I've got an alternative solution if you want you can stop using a plugin and configure stuff in your functions.php
    Here is a link to where I saved this so I find it again when needed (not my own invention of course, I found it while googling) => https://gist.github.com/ovizii/11079259

    add_action('phpmailer_init','send_smtp_email');
    function send_smtp_email( $phpmailer )
    {
        // Define that we are sending with SMTP
        $phpmailer->isSMTP();
    
        // The hostname of the mail server
        $phpmailer->Host = "smtp.example.com";
    
        // Use SMTP authentication (true|false)
        $phpmailer->SMTPAuth = true;
    
        // SMTP port number - likely to be 25, 465 or 587
        $phpmailer->Port = "587";
    
        // Username to use for SMTP authentication
        $phpmailer->Username = "yourusername";
    
        // Password to use for SMTP authentication
        $phpmailer->Password = "yourpassword";
    
        // The encryption system to use - ssl (deprecated) or tls
        $phpmailer->SMTPSecure = "tls";
    
        $phpmailer->From = "your-email-address";
        $phpmailer->FromName = "Your Name";
    }

    This is very weird, now the webriti thingy name has been dropped and the plugin shows as Easy WP SMTP but this is NOT the original plugin or at least not the original owner.

    ...or use this: http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wp-smtp
    It has been also removed for a while, but it's back now.
    I believe this is the original to Easy WP SMTP.

    PS: It says "compatible up to 3.8.3" but I'm runnig it with 3.9.1 fine.
