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

Thank You, & Hats Off !!
As an experienced developer I've looked into the code and it is solid and efficient. good work!
installed this plug in all started work perfectly! Thanks!
This plugin works perfectly, thank you developer.
I tried a lot of different settings, but this plugin would not work with ZOHO mail, and worse still there is no debug info easily at hand. Easy WP SMTP worked fine with the settings this plugin failed on, AND it has debug right on the settings screen.
I install this plugin and try to email from my local system, but its not trigger any this and gives me error.
Is this plugin not sending email from local system???
