How to manage emails on FlyWP

FlyWP by default doesn’t provide email services. However, you can easily connect any external email gateway with FlyWP. Handling domain emails externally has several benefits, and here’s why it’s a better approach:

Why FlyWP doesn’t offer email by default?

Yes, we don’t offer email hosting. Though it’s technically possible to setup email server in the same server, but it wouldn’t reach the inbox. Because simply email is hard, your IP isn’t warmed for sending emails, dealing with reputation and blacklisting, etc. That’s why you should use reputable email senders like SendGrid, Postmark, Mailgun, etc.

We make it easy to configure an SMTP server so that your site can send via 3rd party sender without needing any SMTP plugin.

FlyWP recommends using a known and trusted email provider
