Preguntas frecuentes

Can this plugin be used to send emails via Outlook, Gmail, Google Workspace, Hotmail, Yahoo, Zoho SMTP?

Yes, it can. You should use the dedicated Gmail or Outlook mailer options, since they are faster and more reliable, compared the the “Other SMTP” mailer.

If you want to use other providers, you’ll need to select the “Other SMTP” mailer and configure the correct SMTP host details.

What to do if you need help or have an issue?

Please open a new support thread and provide as much information as possible, without any private information (it is a public forum).

And we will try to help out as soon as possible.

I was hesitant, but installed, activated and within minutes (after I used the correct password) everything was working as expected. I selected "other" smtp and it was rather painless and the logging was also helpful.
