A fast and simple improvement of your outgoing emails. Template editor is easy to use as well. Awesome little gem of a plugin. WP should consider this as part of their core!

I love that this plugin is so easy to use. It helps to quickly set up very nice emails. I've used it on 20+ websites and I haven't had any issues with it so far!

This plugin works great out-of-the-box. It takes the boring WP emails and gives them an elegant design. If you don't code, it's easy to quickly pop in your logo and change the "From" address for a much more graceful solution than the default. If you don't mind getting in the code, it only takes a few minutes to change the colors to match your site.

Exactly What I Needed to Change Sender Name/Email Address
By , for WP 4.0

The WP Better Emails plugin did exactly what I needed--changed the sender name and email from that of my web host to a real email address. This took me--in less than five minutes, including downloading the plugin--what I couldn't make happen in more than an hour. I was ready to hack my WordPress core. Thanks for making it simple. (And so far it doesn't seem to mess with my iThemes Exchange Membership plugin.)

Great looking emails and easy to use

I've been using this plug in for a long time, since before it had the TinyMCE editor. It worked then, and it works now--and is even easier to use. I highly recommend it for professional communications with your website users.

Haven't got to to work yet, and support email fails
By , for WP 4.0

Five stars for fast, helpful (and restrained) response from author on this thread. Unfortunately, WP Better Emails will not work for me as I use Mandrill for email. I leave my original review at the bottom for reference.

Because I could not send the default HTML template using the plug in AND the support e-mail embedded in app failed, I attempted to reach out for assistance by both the forum and review pages. To Nicolas' credit, thse worked and I received a response very early this morning. Nicholas' response was clear (and restrained after my 1-star review). It turns out, the reason the plug in does not work in my installation is because I use Mandrill, which does not use the WordPress email function required of WP Better Emails.

My suggestion to Nicholas is to include the Mandrill exclusion explicitly in the FAQs and to fix the support e-mail included in the plug-in.


Installed and tried default settings.
All test emails comes across as plain text.
Tried to write to author using "please email me at : wpbetteremails@iamnico.la" from within the app but that email's domain rejected my gmail addressed message.

So far, not working.
