What is WP Mail SMTP?

WP Mail SMTP is a simple yet powerful WordPress plugin to improve the way your WordPress site handles email.

If you’re using WordPress to send email messages and notifications, you’ll face issues with email not being delivered or being marked as spam.

This is because WordPress, by default, uses the PHP mail function to send email notifications and messages. Often, this function does not correctly work due to server misconfigurations, theme/plugin conflicts, or spam filtering issues.

WP Mail SMTP helps fix these issues without getting into the technical details of it.

With this plugin, you can set up email configurations to work seamlessly with external SMTP servers or popular email services like Gmail, Outlook, Amazon SES, and SendGrid.

You can also send emails from custom email addresses associated with your domain, which looks more professional and can help establish trust with your recipients.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

Learn the Basics of WordPress Email

Email is a fundamental means of communication for websites. If you’re using email for user engagement, including newsletters, notifications, updates, and user account-related emails, then knowing the basics will help you engage with your audience more effectively.

Plus, when email issues arise, having a basic understanding of WordPress email can help you diagnose and resolve problems quickly.

Added to this, many WordPress plugins and services in WordPress rely on email for notifications and communication. If you don’t have your email properly set up, you could miss important notifications, security updates, and renewal notifications.

The course will show you how to connect your site to different email services like SendLayer, Gmail, and Outlook.

It also shows you how to create and view email logs, reports, optimization, smart routing, and other tools.

Learn How To Fix Email Delivery Issues on Your Own

This course will equip you to handle any email issues you’re facing on your site – basic and advanced. You won’t need to hire a developer or tech engineer to get this done every time you face a problem.

You’ll know how to quickly identify and resolve issues that cause your emails to be undelivered or marked as spam.

Plus, we’ll show you how to send test emails whenever you need.

This will help you check instantly if your emails are being sent and received.

Improve Your Website Experience

Email is an integral part of any website as you need it for contact forms, user registrations, password reset emails, and more.

For instance, if a user asks for a password reset, you want them to receive the email promptly. This ensures that they can login within a few minutes. If it takes days, then they probably won’t come back to your site.

So properly configuring your email settings ensures a positive user experience.

Aside from the right configurations and settings, you’ll also learn how to manage and keep track of email.

With that, you can see exactly what’s happening on your site.
