    Hello Stefano,

    I could manage the settings etc.
    now I have sent a newsletter and it looks all well on the dashboard.

    But now my provider is slow… it takes ages for the mail to arrive
    I have asked them already, but it seems all is right.

    My question, I have not used smtp settings.
    And I cannot find a documentation why/or is this better to enable smtp
    does this goes faster…

    thank you for this great plug in,
    or do you think it is better I buy the pro version



    Hi, to use the SMTP you need an SMTP service. Your provider has this service if it provides event the mailboxes for your domain, or it can be bought from Mailgun, Mailjet, Sendgrid, and so on.
    About the speed, probably even the SMTP service of your provider performs better than the “native” email capability provided with the simple hosting, you should just try.
    To use an SMTP, install an SMTP plugin, like wp mail SMTP: it is more flexible than our SMTP addon, and ALL emails sent by your site are delivered via the configured SMTP.


    Thank you Stefano, for the quick answer
    I will give the smtp a try



    Hi Marga,

    I had the same problem, and I just finished solving it! I needed to an SMTP service, and installed the WP Mail SMTP plugin. In their set up, they give you options (SendLayer, Mailgun, Mailjet, Sendgrid, etc). Instead of another external service, I contacted my webhost provider – SiteGround – and they helped me set up my SMTP record and events through them. It’s included with my web hosting fees. I don’t know what provider you use, but they might help you set up SMTP.

    I hope this helps 🙂


    Yes Laurie, I did that too.
    it works fine….
    also with smtp from my hoster
    I love this plug in…. and the add ons…
    checking it out on one site…. maybe i will get the pro version…for more sites.

    thank you and greetings
