We recommend setting up WordPress to use SMTP instead of the default PHPMailer as it will help boost the deliverability of emails sent from your WordPress website. Configuring your WordPress site to send emails using your Ecenica SMTP means you can take advantage of SPF, DKIM signing and DMARC, all of which help ensure your emails are not marked as spam and instead increase the chance they are delivered safely to your user’s inboxes.

You can use any WordPress SMTP plugin. We have provided the steps to set up the popular WP Mail SMTP plugin below:
