    • From Name - Enter a name you'd like to appear as being sent FROM
    • Force From Name - Check this if you wish to force the FROM name
    • Mailer - Choose 'Other SMTP'
    • Return Path - Check this box

  7. Scroll down to the 'Other SMTP' section. Make sure to toggle the 'Authentication' button.Click the Save Settings button.
    • SMTP Host - mail.yourdomain.com
    • Encryption - None
    • SMTP Port - 25
    • Username - Enter your Domain email address
    • Password - Enter your email address password

The plugin mentions that you should add the following lines to your wp-config.php file.
