Version: 3.1 Configure SMTP mailing in WordPress, including support for sending e-mail via SSL/TLS (such as GMail).
Scott Riley's Configure SMTP is always the first Plugin I add in all of my installs.
I hope this continues to be maintained and available for all of us! This one is great work!
Easy to configure.
I just want to say thank you, thank you and thank you for such a useful plugin.
For the security reasons I only allow authenticated email on my VPS server. This plugin makes it possible for WP to send alerts via SMTP.
Its the only one I have found that works. Nuff said.
I just tried to install on WP 4.0.1 and failed at installation first time.
Second time woring flawless.
Error message first time:
Download failed.. Failed to connect to downloads.wordpress.org port 443: Connection refused
But now I have an error in 4.0.1:
Strict Standards: Declaration of c2c_ConfigureSMTP::options_page_description() should be compatible with C2C_Plugin_023::options_page_description($localized_heading_text = '') in /htdocs/www/fodler/wp-content/plugins/configure-smtp/configure-smtp.php on line 47
Very easy to configure and incredibly effective. Still working in WordPress 3.9 too.
What more could you want, it works well and is amazing stable.
Does what it's supposed to do and does it well. Nice commenting and intuitive interface
When setting up a new WP install, the first thing I do is ALWAYS getting "Configure SMTP" first in order to get e-mail messaging from (all) our blog(s) going. Recently did it for http://betterBlogging.info/ which is my latest proof of this very nice plugin running great!
Scott's plugin works great with any e-mail server tested so far, including self-hosted and Gmail (the latter is even pro-configured "for the asking" -- or the box-checking, to be precise -- to be able and run a quick-and-dirty setup w/o much ado and on someone else's server load; that's what much-hated Google is still good for ;) IMO, even though they log, scan, and analyze what you're directing through their mail servers)!
A multi-year user of Scott Riley's 'Configure SMTP' plugin, I haven't had any trouble whatsoever running it on 120+ installs in many years from WP like-2.1 up to recent 3.6.1 and 4.1.1 installs.
