In need of a tool that allows you to easily log and view all emails sent from WordPress? Check & Log might be just the solution for that.
This WordPress plugin helps you store sent emails for auditing purposes, as well as debug email related problems in your WordPress site. Works best on eCommerce websites that have been created with WooCommerce or Easy Digital Downloads.
Some of its features include:
- Test email sending — if you’re not sure whether WordPress is sending emails, you can use this plugin to find out. The process is very simple: you need to choose an address that will receive a simple test email. You can even override the custom header with your own values, to avoid any other issues.
- Viewing logged emails — they can be viewed from the admin interface, as they are stored in a separate table. You get the option to filter them based on subject, email, date, etc.
- Deleting logged emails — you can delete them by going to the admin interface. You can either delete them in bulk or selectively — by date, email, or subject.
- Ability to change the “mail from” email address, “mail from name” and override default email WordPress addresses.
Install the plugin from the plugin repository and activate.
How do I use it?
Check the WordPress Admin Dashboard for “Check & Log Email” menu item.
Why did you write this plugin?
Someone using one of my other plugins had trouble with emails not being sent. I knocked this together to help him (and anyone else).
