Working with Elegant Themes Divi2 theme
By , for WP 4.0

It took a little time to adjust my SMTP server settings, and the email address that the form sends to has to match the account you are using in this plugin to work properly.
ALSO NOTE that the plugin's testing tool is NOT the same as testing your live form. At first the plugin tests were working, but the actual form was not.

The plugin download page needs more setup documentation.

Otherwise, straightforward and does what I need it to do.

excellent

Thanks nice add-on

So grateful, but wish the multisite config was better documented

This plugin was just what I needed to go send mail via SMTP and also to set the return-path header. It took me a while to find the discussion about how to set it up for multisite. It might be worth adding that to your FAQ. But primarily, thanks!

Good but need to hide password from others.
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is a good mail sending plugin but it shows SMTP password in its settings page. Other than that this is a good one.

No 2-Step Authentication

This plugin still works with Gmail - as long as your Google account is not set up for 2-step authentication (which I recommend). I suggest setting up a new account just to use with this plugin.

Daunting settings page but good plugin
By , for WP 3.6

Does exactly what you need but the settings page could do with a redesign.

Nice and simple
By , for WP 3.4.1

Thanks for this plugin!

Just one remark.
I'd suggest that the username and especially the password field to be "hidden" on the SMTP Authentication section, meaning that their contents shouldn't be saved as plain text. I feel it's quite dangerous if someone gets access to the admin panel and the real admin has put an active email account there.

Solved my problem
By , for WP 3.4.2

Needed simple way to make Buddypress send via SMTP and this solved the problem. Works great and simple to use.

Little difficult to get working with Gmail and not sure why, but just use your own host to create a real POP3 account.
