SMTP / Email from InstaWP Servers

Due to extensive abuse by spammers we have disabled all outgoing ports for SMTP including 25 and 587. That means, that you won't be able to send emails to anyone directly using InstaWP servers, you can however still send emails using following techniques:

Using Mailtrap

We have partnered with Mailtrap which provides a sandbox mail testing service, so you can integrate their API key into your Integrations page to enable 1-click mailtrap on your InstaWP sites. To learn more - Add a Mailtrap Integration

Using a Plugin

You can use a third party plugin like Email Log to check mails being sent from your InstaWP site inside the wp-admin screen itself.
