Listivo sends emails via the default WordPress function WP_Mail. If you receive emails from your WordPress e.g. right after WordPress installation or when you change password, it means that your server will also work with Vehica. It is the same function.

By default, wordpress uses the PHP mail() function which often is the reason why emails go to the Spam folder. To avoid this you can make a bit more advanced mail setup

 

1. Install “WP MAIL SMTP” plugin

https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/


2. Activate the plugin

3. Hover over the “Settings” tab in the left sidebar and click “Email”


Firstly we will show you how to use a Gmail account via SMPT, then we will show Yahoo SMPT example

In both cases below please choose last option “Other SMPT” (if you wish to use alternative API method for Gmail please check this article – https://wpforms.com/how-to-securely-send-wordpress-emails-using-gmail-smtp/ )


4. Configure SMTP options (Gmail example)

Log into your Gmail account and set the option “Let less secure apps use your account”. How to do it you can find in this article: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255?hl=en
