Using 3rd-Party Email Services (RackSpace, Mandrill etc.)

In this article we go over how to use any 3rd-party email service when using using any of our registration plugins:

In all the plugins we are using the built-in WordPress email system to send emails.

If you are using an external email service and you are not using the WordPress built-in wp_mail() functions, all you need to do in order to activate an external email service is to overwrite the regular wp_mail() function that WordPress defines in the pluggable functions file.

There is no need to edit any plugin code and many external services already provide you with the ability to overwrite it by using a plugin that their company developed.

WordPress pluggable function are designed to be replaced by other functions as part of the WordPress design.

If you don’t know how to code and you would like to us to do it for you, please send us a quote request through our Wishlist Member dedicated website at
