In this guide we will show you how to install and setup the Easy WP SMTP plugin in WordPress. It is highly recommended to use SMTP with authentication to send emails from your WordPress website. This increases the probability of your email being delivered successfully, instead of being flagged as spam. Since you cannot add your SMTP settings to the WordPress Dashboard by default, you must use a 3rd party plugin to add this functionality. Of the many SMTP plugins available for WordPress, Easy WP SMTP is by far the most popular.

  1. Log in to you WordPress Dashboard.
  2. Click Plugins in the left navigation menu.

I recommend you contact the plugin developers regarding the possibility or consider other contact form plugins such as Contact Form 7.
