Secure mail was never so easier
By , for WP 4.3.1

After configuring a POP3 mailbox, our install started TLS encryption and then logged on create and transport e-mail, securely to gmail. It included SPF and DKIM because of other settings on our cPanel host.

Easy & reliable
By , for WP 4.3.1

I initially used this plugin because our IIS server wasn't set up to use PHPmail. Now I use it because we host our mail on an in-house and our websites are hosted externally. This plugin is easy to install/customize, reliable, and it solves my email routing problems.

Great plugin

Very useful when stuck with mail servers issues on poor webhosts ;)

Does not compatible with CF7 v4.2.2
By , for WP 4.3.1

It was a great plugin until I upgrade CF7 to v4.2.2 and WordPress v4.3.1. It seems the global setting to enable using SMTP for all WordPress mail does not works. Since I could manage to integrate CF7 with other plugin, I really hope WP Mail SMTP could provide new version with great features.

I am truly glad to ever use this plugin :)

Great plugin for setting custom SMTP!

Please continue the good job and keep it up to date!

Works Fine with WP 4.3
By , for WP 4.3

SMTP mail compatibility should be built-in to WordPress where it is needed by so many users and would be so trivial to include. This plugin is useful because the "powers that be" obviously have one or more non-technical reasons to not want to provide that convenience to users.

The WP-Mail-SMTP plugin is easy to use and works fine. The only annoyance is that it shouldn't be needed.

Good plugin
By , for WP 4.3

Works good with GMail, simple configuration.

Security note: the plugin stores your password in plain text in the database, and shows it to all admins on the settings page. This could be prevented by setting all settings in wp-config.php (which completely disables the settings page, making the plugin even simpler), but your password is still out there.
Also, you have to configure google to allow unsafe app conections, which i think is only OK in a dedicated account (not used for other business).
