How to Configure Email

WP Mail SMTP Settings

Settings For Send Mail

Google’s GMail SMTP server is a free service for anyone who has a GMail account. You can use this free SMTP server to send emails from your website. E-mail sending will take place just the same as a standard e-mail client (Windows Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird).

Gmail automatically rewrites the “from” line of any e-mail you send via their SMTP gateway to your Gmail address, and it overrides any Reply-To settings you may have in your e-mail software in favor of the one in Gmail’s web interface. So while Gmail’s SMTP access sure is handy, it’s not a perfect solution for everybody. Gmail also stores and indexes anything you send via SMTP as if you had sent it using the website, so all your e-mail is still searchable and in one place.

If you don’t have a GMail account, you can create one at the GMail account creation page. Firstly, please install WP SMTP. Then all you need to do is configure your mail client to use GMail for outgoing mail server.

Using WP Mail SMTP Plugin to reconfigures the wp_mail() function to use SMTP instead of mail() and creates an options page that allows you to specify various options.

Go to Settings → WP Mail SMTP to setup:

Goto Settings → WP Mail SMTP
