Using WordPress With External SMTP Server

by admin 1890 views 0 Comments and 0 Rections
If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog and your blog is having problems sending emails then here is a solution, WordPress offers support to send email through external SMTP servers instead of local mailer. Here is a simple solution for it:

In /wp-includes/pluggable.php around line 377, change


Then, in /wp-includes/class-phpmailer.php around line 155, set your SMTP host:
var $Host = "";

You may also need to set a username and password, and tell WP to attempt authentication. You'll see those in the lines below the hostname variable.
var $SMTPAuth = true;

var $Username = "username";

var $Password = "password";

On the other hand, you could do this via a plugin, perhaps even Callum McDonald's WP Mail SMTP.
