Email Setup for Wordpress & Normal Accounts

Posted October 15, 2015 10.5k views

I have two droplet’s setup both have Wordpress installed. I’ve installed Sendmail but I’m still having issues sending emails through Wordpress.

I’ve never setup and managed an email server and I’m wondering if that is what I will need to do to get this resolved.

I’ve also got 6 sites that I need to host email for and I’m trying to find a good place with a reasonable price for hosting their email. Any suggestions?

Hello @Noob,

You can

  • create your own Mail Server (not for newbies)
  • use Google Apps for Work
  • use Zoho Mail

My wordpress dont send mails too… I install postfix and after this I install a Plugin WP-Mail Bank, and it dont send… you can help me?

This email is only to receive, when a visit click on a link to send error mail.

My idea is, Visit click on link to send mail > and WP send this mail to my gmail.

What I need do?

Hello all,

What I could suggest here is using an SMTP plugin for your WordPress site.

That way you will be able to specify an SMTP server with authentication which your emails would be going through. You could for example use Gmail’s SMTP settings. This would drastically increase the delivery rate of your emails as well compared to using plain PHP mail.

I’ve been using this plugin for a while now and it works very well: Easy WP SMTP

Hope that this helps!
