How to use GMail with WordPress
WordPress uses the PHP function mail() as default for sending e-mails such as comment notifications. However sendmail isn’t configured on my server. So I used the WordPress plugin WP Mail SMTP till now. Unfortunately it won’t work with Google’s GMail—which is a problem for me, after I switched to GMail.
There’s another WordPress plugin out there: It’s called “Cimy Swift SMTP” and works well with GMAIL, TLS and SSL connections. Give it a try!
