WordPress plugin to allow sending mail using SMTP

Due to our recent PHP security changes (disabling PHP’s mail function), WordPress websites that are not configured with an SMTP plugin are no longer able to send email. The fix is super easy and only takes a minute or two to complete.

  1. Install the following SMTP plugin “WP Mail SMTP” – http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/
  2. Configure the plugin’s SMTP connection settings per this article – https://www.aspnix.com/kb/windows-shared-kb/how-do-i-send-mail-from-my-website-on-windows-shared-services/
  3. Done!

Your WordPress powered website should now be able to send mail using our website mailer servers using SMTP.
