Configure Email Sending using WP SMTP

If your WordPress website is not sending emails, you will need to configure it to do so. The easiest way to do is to tell your WordPress to send emails via SMTP using a send mailbox you have access too. This is easily done using the popular plugin WP SMTP from WP Forms.

This plugin also supports sending emails using Google Workspace and other email providers.

Note, you will need to have the server and login details for an SMTP mailbox
