About The Project

Product Name Screen Shot

Postino was built to make sending emails via WP the easiest it can get. It provides a setting page where you can set the SMTP parameters, but, in case of batch installations, you can even put a configuration file in your theme.

How it works

The plugin simply uses the WordPress hook phpmailer_ini to set the SMTP configuration.

The versions previous to 1.0.5 used to override the wp_mail which both lead to the introduction of bugs - such as the email not being formatted correctly - and was an overkill for just setting the SMTP configuration.

Getting Started

You can just clone this repository inside your wp-content/plugins folder, or download the installable zip and install it via the WordPress dashboard.


Since the release 1.0.1, you can update Postino directly from the WordPress' dashboard, like any other plugin.


To use Postino, just install it and set up your SMTP server in the settings page.

You can also alternatively add these settings into wp-config.php

define('POSTINO_CAFF_SMTP_SECURE', 'ssl');
define('POSTINO_CAFF_SMTP_PORT', 465);
define('POSTINO_CAFF_SMTP_PASSWORD', 'realpassword!');
define('POSTINO_CAFF_MAIL_SENDER_NAME', 'Caffeina labs');

Everything is now set up. You don't need to worry about anything else.
