WP Mail Logging is the most popular plugin to log emails sent by WordPress or WooCommerce. Simply activate it and it will work immediately, no configuration necessary.
Because it’s useful to know which emails your WordPress sends for debugging purposes or out of curiosity.
By default, WordPress and your web host do not log, store or keep track of emails sent from your website.
The default emails WordPress sends are logged:
These emails will be logged like this:
For most websites, this represents just a couple of emails per week. If your website is high traffic, is a membership website or is a WooCommerce store, the number of emails will increase and will be critical.
When WordPress sends emails, there’s no guarantee it will be delivered.
This is the lifecycle of a WordPress email:
1. WordPress or plugin creates an email
2. WordPress passes the email to the host and email gets logged by this plugin
3. The host takes the email and sends it (SMTP or Mail Transfer Agent)
4. Recipient receives or blocks the email
5. If the email is accepted, the spam filter decides which inbox it goes into
6. Recipients see the email and might open it.
This plugin does not track delivery after step 2.
You need to send an email from your WordPress to an inbox that has no spam filter:
If mail-tester never receives your email, there’s a problem with your host’s sending method. Contact your host to let them know.
If mail-tester receives your emails (see point above), but your own address doesn’t receive it:
We recommend in this case to send your WordPress email with a service provider, like MailPoet or Sendgrid. See our guide on free plugins and options to send with an SMTP plugin.
This plugin is maintained by MailPoet, the most popular email plugin for WordPress.
The plugin was created and launched in 2014 by Christian Zöller.null
