This guide provides the step by step instructions on how to configure MailPoet (formerly called Wysija) WordPress Plugin to send email using your SMTP2GO account.
This guide assumes that you have already installed the MailPoet plugin in your WordPress.
Log in to your WordPress admin control panel. Go to the MailPoet -> Settings.
Click the Send With… tab and select the Third party option.
Enter mail.smtp2go.com into SMTP Hostname.
Enter your SMTP2GO username and password into Login and Password fields respectively. You can view and change these values by logging into your SMTP2GO control panel.
Change the SMTP port to 2525. SMTP2GO’s service is also open on ports 25, 8025 and 587.
Note: If none of the above ports work, try using SMTP Hostname port80.smtpcorp.com and SMTP port 80.
Set Secure connection to TLS.
Set the Authentication to Yes.
Click the Send a test mail button. If you receive the test message to your email address, then the settings are working correctly.
