I downloaded the new SMTP plug-in since it was using internal before. I set it up for localhost leaving other items blank and wondered how to use it. But I don’t see where I choose anything in the plug-in so I wanted to see if the update already removed the old but this link: https://www.thenewsletterplugin.com/category/release doesn’t work, just gets redirected.
Also I question:
1 – Have you tested your smtp plug-in for vulnerabilities?
2 – I presume using internal smtp it’s okay to not use SSL/TLS since on the same server. (I didn’t have to enter a name/password for it to work).
Hi, if you have an SMTP on localhost, the best option is not to use an SMTP on your WordPress, but to let PHP use it. Note: there are no differences between the “internal” SMTP of Newsletter and the SMTP addon. The code is identical and it uses the PHP mailer library provided by WP just to connect to an SMTP and the email.
It is not an SMTP or an SMTP client implementation.
