Setting up SMTP plugin

Please advise how to set up STTP with the Easy WP SMTP plugin

    That is going to depend on a number of factors. Is SMTP setup on the server (postfix/sendmail/qmail/exim)? Are you using a relay server and where are you hosting at? Some hosting providers limit your ability to send email.

    You only need 1 plugin for sending messages. Branda has a module for this.

    Hello Bronwyn ,

    Trust you’re doing well!

    Continuing here from our conversation on a live chat:

    Once the plugin is activated in your site please go to Settings > Easy WP SMTP. See attached screnshot:

    To set up GMAIL, please use the following SMTP server settings:

    SMTP username: Your Gmail address
    SMTP password: Your Gmail password
    SMTP server address:
    Gmail SMTP port (TLS): 587
    SMTP port (SSL): 465
    SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes

    Please see this screenshot:

    After saving the settings, please try sending an email from your contact page. Let me know in here if an email was sent.

    Thank you Joshua for chiming in this thread. There is an SMTP module in Branda plugin too, indeed.

    Have a good day and take care!
