【WordPress】メール送信をSMTPへ簡単に変更するプラグイン【Easy WordPress SMTP】

シェアする

WP内のメールでのお知らせ通知や登録認証などを送信するには、予めサーバ側でメールサーバを構築する必要がありました

今回紹介するプラグインを利用すればメールサーバを用意せずとも、GmailやYahooメールをそのままWPのメールに流用出来ます

  • From Email Address: The email address that will be used to send emails to your recipients
  • From Name: The name your recipients will see as part of the “from” or “sender” value when they receive your message
  • SMTP Host: Your outgoing mail server (example: smtp.gmail.com)
  • Type of Encryption: none/SSL/TLS
  • SMTP Port: The port that will be used to relay outbound mail to your mail server (example: 465)
  • SMTP Authentication: No/Yes (This option should always be checked “Yes”)

  • Password: The password that you use to login to your mail server

Once you are done click on the “Save Changes” button to save the settings.

For your convenience I have made a configuration list of some of the popular SMTP servers

2. Testing & Debugging Settings

This section allows you to send a test email to a recipient to make sure that everything is working as expected. Let me give you an example so you know what will happen:

a) You want to use Gmail as your SMTP server and you have already configured your main email address “abc123@gmail.com” (in the general settings) to send all emails from your site.

b) Now you want to check what a recipent will see when an email is sent from your site. So you enter your alternative email address (example: jdb123@gmail.com) in the “To” field along with a subject and a message.

c) When you click on the “Send Test Email” your WordPress site (SMTP client) will relay this email to the Gmail SMTP server. Gmail will authenticate this request based on the credentials you have provided (example: username, password).

d) Once the request is authenticated Gmail will finally send this email to jdb123@gmail.com. The recipient will see that the email was sent from abc123@gmail.com. But actually the email was sent from your WordPress site via Gmail SMTP server.
