WP SMTP can help us to send emails via SMTP instead of the PHP mail() function.

One of most dangerous plugins in the whole world for wordpress
By , for WP 4.5.3

This plugin was responsible of the largest data breaching in Mossack Fonseca's wordpress website. wordfence states something like this. so please don't use this plugin if you care about the security of your website.

MF are running the WP SMTP plugin which gives you the ability to send mail from your website via a mail server. This plugin stores email server address and login information in plain text in the WordPress database. The login information stored is a mail server SMTP login for sending email. Here is a screenshot showing the login information for this plugin appearing in a database as plain text on one of our test servers:

Not Updated, Issues

It adds an extra email to the Reply-to header, and has an issue with escaping names. There are better alternatives than this.

Works fine.

This plug-in works great, it's simple to configure and it solved my problem of emails going from my site to others, with the sender being "WordPress" -- instead of from my website. It should be added to the core of WordPress. I've been using it for a couple of years with various different themes and other plug-ins and I've never had any problems with it. Thank you, to the developer! I appreciate you sharing your awesome work.

Working straight away, life saver

I end up in trouble with my mail system, while before I could simply use gmail for my form and woocommerce, suddenly all mail went to spam and stopped all together. I check Postfix and contact my hosting, they suggest to use a third part service, tried google OAuth 2.0 and apparently my port 465 was blocked on the server; switched all site' s mail to the Zohomail account and created Domain Keys to authenticate the mail server side. All this switching a handful of plugin without being able to have form and shop mail working at the same time.
Finally I install WP SMTP using my domain mail on Zoho and everything is back and working, only took me 3 minutes.
Great plugin!
I configured it with Zohomail using the same mail address from my domain and TLS authentication on port 587.

Not only it has been working flawlessly since day 1, it also got through a handful of WP's updates without an update for itself - quite an admirable achievement.

Love it! Simple, and exactly what I needed

Great plugin!

I've been using this since the very first time I ever used WordPress, and it has worked flawlessly! Okay for full disclosure, I installed my first WordPress instance about two weeks ago, but the plugin has been working flawlessly since then!

One thing to note, when I first installed the plugin, I couldn't send mail. It turns out in my case the "From" field must match the "Username" field. I was trying to send mail with a different From, and it just didn't work out that way. Unfortunately, testing capabilities werent' very provocative either. I'm not sure to blame the plugin on that though, since all the plugins worked the same.
