WordPress users sometimes – well, almost always – are struggling with email deliverability and emails that fail to send. So did we after moving one of our sites from All-Inkl to Digital Ocean. Luckily, we’ve installed WP Mail SMTP by WPForms and are happy ever after.
WP Mail SMTP Pro
WP Mail SMTP allows you to send emails via a trusted provider such as Mailgun, SendGrid or Gmail. However, the folks at WPForms just came up with an even better solution! Say hello to WP Mail SMTP Pro. The paid pro versions come with all the bells and whistles of the free version plus a few more interesting ones such as native integrations with Microsoft and Amazon SES.
- Microsoft SMTP
Send emails reliably through your existing Outlook.com or Office 365 accounts
- Amazon SES SMTP
Advanced users can send a high volume of emails at a very reasonable rate with the Amazon Simple Email Service
- Email Log
Email logging allows you to view all emails sent from your WordPress site, to store emails for your records, and to audit outgoing emails.
- Email Controls
As the tin says, you’ll get full control over which email notifications WordPress sends. You can easily disable various notification emails such as for the creation of new users for instance.
- Expert Support
Pro users will get a top notch professional one-on-one email support.
Pricing starts from as little as $49 per year for the Pro plan. If you need a white glove setup service along with priority support, the Elite plan is exactly what you’re looking for. For an annual fee of $99 it includes WP Mail SMTP plugin installation and setup, DNS configuration for proper email domain name verification, Mailgun setup, and final testing. Developer and Agency plans include support for Amazon SES, SendGrid, Gmail, and more.
PS: WPForms allows you to create a WordPress signature form in just a few simple steps.
