WP SMTP

Description

WP SMTP can help us to send emails via SMTP instead of the PHP mail() function.
It adds a settings page to “Dashboard«->«Settings«->«WP SMTP« where you can configure the email settings.
There are some examples on the settings page, you can click the corresponding icon to view (such as “Gmail««Yahoo!««Microsoft««163″«QQ«).
If the field “From« was not a valid email address, or the field “SMTP Host« was left blank, it will not reconfigure the wp_mail() function.

Took me some time to discover how to resolve the 'problem' authenticate your SMTP account. So, for the girls/boys who encounter the same problem: Login to your ZOHO account / My account / (enter your password) Security / App Passwords . (Application-specific passwords are passcodes that give applications like email clients permission to access your Zoho Mail.) Create new Password / Enter the app name / then click Generate. Save the shown password to a safe place and use THIS password in the plugin. So do not use your password of your ZoHo account.

This plugin was responsible of the largest data breaching in Mossack Fonseca's wordpress website. wordfence states something like this. so please don't use this plugin if you care about the security of your website. MF are running the WP SMTP plugin which gives you the ability to send mail from your website via a mail server. This plugin stores email server address and login information in plain text in the WordPress database. The login information stored is a mail server SMTP login for sending email. Here is a screenshot showing the login information for this plugin appearing in a database as plain text on one of our test servers:
