For this tutorial we will be using the WP Mail SMTP plugin which can be found using the link below:
With the plugin installed and activated, we will go under Settings, WP Mail SMTP, and select Gmail. For this we will need to set up a client ID, Client Secret and a URL in the ‘Authorized redirect URI’ fields. To start filling that out we will want to go to the Google Developers Console site and create a new project. You can go to the site using the link below:
We would recommend naming the project something you can remember should you need to find it again and click the create button. Use the Enable APIs and Services to go through the options and enable the Gmail API.
Copy the Client ID from Google to add to your plugin’s settings, click done, and edit the OAuth client ID to grab the secret key to include in the plugin’s settings and save the settings to ensure you don’t lose the information.
You can send another email or for another option, you can set up another SMTP which would require your login information which is far less secure.
