Gmail Security Issue
By ,

Thank you for providing this great plugin, it works well once set up correctly.
It would be good to have some feedback/reasons if testing fails during the set up stage.

GMAIL SET UP - in case this help others

Setting it up with gmail, I had many failed attempts while testing with no indication/feedback why. The setting was correct, but it would not send emails.

The issue was Google account security setting - in order for this plugin to work, I needed to modify the google account security level:
Access for less secure apps - ON

Still having trouble signing in?
If you’ve tried all the options above but are still unable to sign in to your account on the app, try the following:
Go to https://accounts.google.com/DisplayUnlockCaptcha on your device's browser.

After adjusting all of these, IT FINALLY WORKED

Thank you once again

Works Perfectly!!

I'm not sure why everyone is saying that it doesn't work. But I followed the step-by-step instructions here and used the gmail information that he did, and it worked like a charm. I use Google paid email service and use the same info he listed, except I used my email address and password for those sections.

Thanks for the awesome plugin!

Easy to use and configure

I changed my review and rating for this after the developer cleaned up the security issue w/ the password being easy to find the database. Yay! The email password is still stored in the WP Database, but it's no longer in plaintext and easy to read.

Previous review
installed this plugin on a site where we don't have an outgoing mail service. It worked really well out of the box, but then I noticed that it stores the user's email password in the clear (plaintext) in the database.

This is a pretty big security risk - so please don't use this plugin if your email address is tied to banking, health, or other important private information.

v1.1.3 broke User Meta emailing function
By ,

Hi there,
I think I'm seeing the exact same problem as Btchek. New registrations and lost password emails through User Meta Pro plugin stopped being sent. Test email within Easy WP SMTP works fine. I went to my test site with Easy WP SMTP v1.1.1 and emails were working fine. As soon as I updated to v1.1.3 no more emails being sent. Where can I get v1.1.1?
