I’d like to announce the official release of the updated Configure SMTP plugin (v3.0) for WordPress.
Configure SMTP mailing in WordPress, including support for sending e-mail via SSL/TLS (such as GMail).
Recommended update! This release includes a major re-implementation, more error checking, bug fixes, localization support, and more.
