Swift SMTP (formerly Welcome Email Editor)


Swift SMTP is a free & simple SMTP Plugin for WordPress.

Struggeling with emails not being delivered from your WordPress website? Look no further.

📤 Custom SMTP Settings

Swift SMTP allows you to configure custom SMTP settings for your WordPress site, ensuring more reliable sending and delivery through your preferred service.

  • Set “From” email address
  • Set “From” name
  • Define email content type (HTML or plain text)
  • Set SMTP host
  • Set up SMTP encryption & port (SSL or TSL)
  • Set up SMTP authentification through username & password

📨 Customize WordPress Welcome Emails

When a user is added to or signs up for a website, WordPress sends notifications to both the site administrator and the new user. This plugin allows you to customize & change those emails.

  • Change email subject
  • Change email content
  • Add an attachment
  • Change “Reply-To” email address & name
  • & more

🔐 Change WordPress Reset Password Email

Swift SMTP also lets you customize the default Forgot Password email in WordPress.

  • Change email subject
  • Change email content

  1. Download the welcome-email-editor.zip file to your computer.

Why is the Password not included in the Welcome Email?

Since version 4.3, the password is no longer sent to the user via email, and instead, a reset password link is sent. This was a controversial decision, but it was made for a good reason.

This plugin is super easy to use and connect to whatever email service you are already using. Much better than the built-in / server-side emails that WordPress defaults to. Thank you <3

This was just what is was looking for. I have a client portal system within a CRM. The registration process for user involved them getting the standard WP password reset email which is messy. I was easily able to change the wording to suite my requirements. Thanks so much for your work on this great plug in.

After doing some research about how to customize the new user welcome email, I was going to dig in and setup my own plugin. I found this plugin before I started and saved myself a good chunk of time–and it’s probably exactly what I would have created myself. Simple, perfect and allow me to do what I need to do (removed the login url and added some images and my own copy to the email). Thank you for publishing this so the rest of us can use it, too! FYI – if this isn’t working for you, you probably have theme or plugin conflicts. This is a very simple plugin.
