Worked Perfect with Zoho Email
By , for WP 3.8

I had tried WP SMTP first, and that failed. This plugin worked first time using the same settings and it has great debug info in case of a problem.

This is a great plugin if you are running from a cloud server, and don't want to set up LAMP to do email, and ZOHO provides free email accounts on a corporate domain.

It works perfect with gmail

I'm running WP on a ubuntu cloud server and had been trying to install a postfix/dovecot server for over a week with no success (Actually crashed the server several times) I finally gave up and went to hosted email with another provider. I was looking on the web for how to setup sendmail as outgoing only for WordPress when I saw this plugin in a Google search. It really sounded too good to be true. Usually when I find a plugin, it does "almost" what i need, then I end up deleting it. Boy was I surprised! This plugin does what it says on the tin! It took me 5 minutes to get email working for outgoing system messages, and that includes making a dedicated email address on the hosted email system.

I Can't thank you enough for this program! It took me 5 minutes to solve a problem I was working on for over a week. This should be in WordPress core!

Great. Solved myproblem with mail.

I have been desperately trying to get the Subscribe to Comments Reloaded plugin to work, so I don't have to email my responses to commenters by hand. I could not figure out why my commenters weren't receiving the notifications they subscribed to. Someone on a forum recommended a different plugin like this one; I chose this because it seems to be getting recent updates. It works great! Finally my readers are getting the notifications they subscribe to. Thank you!

Worked beautifully on WordPress 3.6 & CF7

I was having an issue with some mail providers rejecting the IP address of my VPS, and even though I could trouble shoot and resolve via DNS & SPF I chose to try this plugin.

Activated it, entered server credentials and BOOM - it worked right away.

Thanks for the great plugin!!!

I'm using WordPress 4 and Contact Form 7.

Was having trouble getting my local dev environment to send mail so I set this up to use Zoho Mail's SMTP server and it worked as expected right away.

Easy, and works!
