A Solution for Website Notification Issues

Your Gmail or Google Workspace (G Suite) account can be used to fix email delivery issues on your site! Accent45 can help you achieve this by setting up WP Mail SMTP using your Google Workspace or Gmail mailer in three easy steps:

  1. We install the WP Mail SMTP plugin on your WordPress site so we can improve email deliverability.
  2. Once installed, it will push notifications from your website straight to your email inbox.
  3. You will be able to alter countless miscellaneous settings, including: stop sending all emails; hide announcements; hide email delivery errors; hide the dashboard widget; and disable email subscriptions.

Follow these steps:


Configuring the WP Mail SMTP Plugin

1) From Email

This is the email address that all of your site’s emails will be sent from. You can type your email address into the field provided or select the email address you’d like to use (including any aliases you’ve configured) from the dropdown that appears after you connect your site to the Gmail API in later steps.

2) From Name

Below the From Email, you can set the From Name. This is the name associated with the emails your site sends out. By default, it will be set to your site’s name, but you can adjust it to anything you’d like.

You can also check the Force From Name option to apply this setting site-wide.

3) Mailer

This is where you can choose which mailer you’d like your site to use. Select the Google / Gmail option.

4) Once you’ve chosen this mailer, you should see a new section appear titled Google / Gmail. In this section, there are settings labeled Client ID and Client Secret.

To generate the information you need for these fields, you’ll need to use your Google account to create a web application. This process doesn’t require any coding, and we’ll show you exactly what to do in the next step.

You’ll be coming back to WP Mail SMTP’s settings page a little later, so for the next step, open a new tab or window in your browser.

Creating a Web App in Your Google Account

In the new tab or window you’ve opened, log in to your Google account and open your Google Cloud Console.
