How to Configure WordPress to Send emails via Gmail SMTP Server?
Let’s look at how you can send transactional emails from your WordPress site for free using the Gmail SMTP server. Using this method instead of the default PHP mail method will improve the reliability of your site’s emails.
To do so, you’ll need to create a Google app so that you can use the API to connect to the Gmail SMTP server rather than manually entering the SMTP details. There are a lot of steps involved in this process. This is a one-time configuration procedure. That is, once you spend 30-60 minutes setting up your site, it will continue to benefit on its own.
You’ll also require the assistance of a WordPress SMTP plugin in addition to creating a Google app. We’ll use the free Post SMTP Mailer/Email Log plugin, but the free WP Mail SMTP plugin, which also supports the Gmail API, is another good option.
The basic procedure is as follows:
- Install the plugin Post SMTP Mailer/Email Log (you need to do this first to get the URLs to use in your Google app).
- Make a Google application. This is the most difficult part of the procedure, but we’ll walk you through it.
- In the Post SMTP Mailer/Email Log settings, enter your Google app API keys.
- To ensure that everything is in working order, send a test email.
This tutorial focuses on how to use a free Gmail account. You can, however, use a similar procedure to set up your site to send emails through your Google Workplace (G Suite) account.
1. Post SMTP Mailer/Email Log Setup and Configuration
Install and activate the free Post SMTP Mailer/Email Log plugin from WordPress.org to get started. This is what allows you to use the Gmail API/SMTP server to send emails from your WordPress site.
After you’ve activated the plugin, go to your WordPress dashboard’s Post SMTP tab and click the Show All Settings option beneath the huge Start the Wizard button.
Then, under the Message tab, enter your email address and name as the “from” address. If you prefer, you can use a different email address as the “from” address instead of your Gmail address.
2. Make Your Own Google App
You must now create a Google application. This is what allows your WordPress site to send emails securely over the Gmail API, and it’s also the most difficult aspect of the process. However, it’s mostly just a matter of clicking a lot of buttons, and we’ll walk you through each step with screenshots.
Make a project.
Open a new tab and paste this URL into it to go to the Google Developers Console. You’ll need to start a new project there. If you’re using the Developers Console for the first time, Google will prompt you to create a project. You can also create a new project by clicking the dropdown in the top-left corner if you already have some (marked by  in the screenshot below).
Activate the Gmail API.
After you’ve finished creating your project, click the Enable APIs and Services button (shown in the screenshot above).
On the next screen, type “Gmail” into the search box and select the Gmail API result:
Then, on the complete Gmail API page, click Enable:
You should now be in a dedicated Gmail API interface. Click the Create Credentials button:
Use the following information to fill out the Find what credentials you need a form
Set up a Consent Detection System
Google will now notify you that you must create a consent screen. This is the same type of authorization screen that appears when you use Google to register or log in to a website.
You must do this to meet Google’s requirements, but you don’t need to be concerned about the information you enter because it will only be used for your own WordPress site.
Set Up Consent Screen by clicking the button:
This should create a new tab where you may configure an OAuth consent screen (remember to save the original browser tab because you’ll need it later). Select External from the User Type drop-down menu. After that, click Create:
Fill out the site’s basic information on the next screen. Again, you don’t have to be concerned about what you put here because you’ll be the only one who sees it.
After you’ve finished filling out the form, click Save at the bottom.
Complete the Credentials section of your project.
Return to the tab with the Add credentials to your project interface option and fill in the following information:
Name – your website’s name (or something else easy to remember).
Authorized redirect URIs can be found in Step #1 of the Post SMTP Mailer/Email Log plugin.
