Configure SMTP v3.1

I’d like to announce the official release of the updated Configure SMTP plugin (v3.1) for WordPress.

Configure SMTP mailing in WordPress, including support for sending e-mail via SSL/TLS (such as GMail).

Recommended update. Highlights: fixed numerous bugs; added a debug mode; updated compatibility through WP 3.2+; dropped compatibility with versions of WP older than 3.0; updated plugin framework; and more.

For more details, instructions, screenshots, and the download link, visit the plugin’s official homepage at :
