Way too much research needed just to get WP to send emails :-)
I’ve signed up for a mailgun account and have WP SMTP plugin installed so I’m good to go. Having read every post on this forum re mailgun and smtp plugins this seems like the best match, and a better option than using CW SMTP add-on.
In mailgun they recommend using a sub-domain. I guess that is to prevent the root domain being blacklisted? Is it better to use a sub-domain or register a new domain specifically for mailgun? For example, new domain - firstname.lastname@example.org
I can’t get my head around how the emails from each WP app/site/domain will look to my client’s who’s sites I’m hosting. Surely the email should look something like this, email@example.com rather than firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com?
Help, last step, but I’m suffering from brain freeze
