very simple and fast, no rubbish and drawings. thank you

SMTP Mailer plugin cannot send email until you enter .....

By twhiting9275 on August 15, 2023

This is the most annoying, and unnecessary popup ever. Even if credentials are entered , you still get this if you haven't explicitly entered port information (which is unnecessary in most cases)

Very poor development here

Best One. No Upsell ads, No Additional Menu, no Frill

Best replacement for Easy WP SMTP!

By Dave Lozier on March 30, 2023

Easy WP SMTP seems to be going down hill ever since SendLayer took it over. It just keeps getting more and more bloated. If you want an easy SMTP plugin then this is the one. It does what it says and nothing more.

Best SMTP Plugin

Great Plugin for extended SMTP Support that has all you need:
mail settings, a form for testing the configuration and a proper debug view (something you miss in most other smtp plugins)!

No stupid "Pro" Versions that only add bloated and useless stuff like WP Mail SMTP or Easy WP SMTP do. (Honestly, you should manage your mails on your smtp provider, not inside worpdress)

And because of its simplicity it works with everything. If you form plugin is not working, the problem lies in the form plugin.

The #1 SMTP plugin today

By Gerard Blanco (sixaxis) on February 22, 2023

This is THE plugin you need to send e-mails. Forget about WPForms, Easy WP SMTP (after their upgrade it got super-bloated) or others. You just need to send e-mails, and this is the plugin to do it. Easy and lightweight.

Perfect replacement for Easy WP SMTP

By hpr78 on February 16, 2023

After Easy WP SMTP sold the plugin to a company it includes much Bloatware, 9 MB! SMTP Mailer has 52 kb! I switched all projects to SMTP Mailer, took less than a minute.

It is small, it does what it should. Not more, not less. Thank you!

Tiny and flawless in function...just perfect!!!

The best SMTP plugin!

By michacassola on December 12, 2022

This plugin is the most lightweight and does it's job well. You also have the test mail functionality that gives you output to fix any problems there might be. Download the others here on wordpress.org and you will see some are megabytes, the smaller a plugin the less of a performance footprint it will have on your site. Go for this one.
