We’re absolutely thrilled to announce the release of WP Mail SMTP 3.4.

With each update, we aim to bring valuable additions to our plugin. And this time, we’re super stoked to announce that we have a new mailer… SendLayer!

SendLayer is a brand new mailer designed to maximize email deliverability. Setting it up is super easy in WordPress, and our Setup Wizard does the hard work for you!

SendLayer mailer in WP Mail SMTP

The WP Mail SMTP team has worked closely with SendLayer to fine-tune the integration and ensure that you get the best results at a super affordable price… and there’s a free trial to help you get started.

Let’s take a closer look at what SendLayer can do for you.

Affordable and Reliable Email Delivery

Email deliverability is a critical success factor for most brands.

And to achieve that, you need a mailer that enables you to maintain:

  • A high domain reputation
  • Over 95% deliverability rate
  • Quick delivery times.

We know that some mailers are difficult to set up, and even the cheapest plan can be costly. That’s why SendLayer is our #1 recommended mailer service for WordPress: it’s easy to use and it’s affordable.

SendLayer domain verification

In short: SendLayer changes everything!

SendLayer Features

SendLayer adds authentication to your outgoing emails to make sure they always land in your customers’ inboxes.

It comes with powerful spam filter protection. SendLayer also uses subdomains by default. That protects the reputation of your root domain – a crucial deliverability factor.

On top of that, SendLayer provides detailed email logs to help you track the entire journey of your outgoing messages. That means SendLayer will tell you if your email sent successfully or not.

And you get detailed email analytics showing emails sent, click-through rates, open rates, and unsubscribes.

We’ve been testing SendLayer over the past month and we’re so excited that you finally get to try it too.

Getting Started With SendLayer

SendLayer is extremely easy to set up and sign up for. But before you connect it with WP Mail SMTP, you’ll first need to create a SendLayer account and choose a plan.

If you want to try the service first before purchasing it or your outgoing email volume is very low, you can sign up for the free trial. It allows you to send up to 500 emails without paying a cent.

Once you’ve set up your SendLayer account, you can use the WP Mail SMTP Setup Wizard to connect your WordPress site with SendLayer. Then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup.

  1. So the 500 emails is just for the trial?
    How much is it after the trial.

    I’d really be interested but sendinblue was 600 emails per day and always free (I believe it’s now 300 per day though)


    1. Hi Adrian,

      After the trial period, you will be upgraded to the Starter pricing plan which is $5/month billed annually, so that would be $60 at the time of checkout.


    1. Hi Smith,

      If you sign up for the trial plan, you can send up to 500 emails. After the trial period, you will be upgraded to the Starter pricing plan which is $5/month billed annually.

      You should be able to locate the trial link below the pricing table (https://sendlayer.com/pricing/).

      I hope this helps. Thanks!

  2. I manage a worpress site. I am not a professional. I want the client to receive emails sent via the form – not me. The emails that I’ve test are sent to the site administrator email (me) – not the client. How do I resolve this

    1. Hi Chas,

      You need to check your form notification settings and set the “send to” email address.

      If you’re using a plugin like WPForms, here’s how you can configure your form notification settings.

      You need to contact the support if you’re using a different plugin.
