I’d like to announce the first official release of the Configure SMTP plugin (v2.0) for WordPress.
Configure and activate SMTP mailing in WordPress.
The plugin’s official homepage is located at :
This plugin is the spiritual successor to my wpPHPMailer plugin. While the general premise of both plugins are identical — allowing for the use and configuration of SMTP mailing in WordPress — the internals are different enough that I felt a new plugin was warranted. wpPHPMailer made the PHPMailer library available to WordPress. But since WordPress integrated the PHPMailer package into its core, a large portion of the plugin became obviated. When considering the removal of that burden from the plugin, a complete rewrite of the code, and the now-outdated (and not especially clear) naming of wpPHPMailer, Configure SMTP was born.
This new plugin is part of coffee2code’s 14 Days of Plugins (new plugin #14).
Comments welcome on this post for this version of the plugin. Comments will be closed once this release has been superseded by another.
