You can use Postmark to improve email deliverability and authenticity. Postmark is one of the leading mailer options for WordPress. In this article, I’m going to show you how you can integrate PostMark into WordPress using the Fluent SMTP plugin to send emails via SMTP.
Configuring Fluent SMTP for Postmark #
Hover over or click on Settings on WordPress Admin and go to Fluent SMTP Dashboard. If this is the first time you are using Fluent SMTP and haven’t set up any connection yet, you will see the list of available Mailer, as we will work with SparkPost, select Postmark from the list.
If you already have one or multiple SMTP driver setups and now you want to add SparkPost also then go to the Settings Tab of Fluent SMTP and select Add New Connection. Now again all the available mailers will appear from where you need to select PostMark.
Sender Settings #
Now we will need to configure the sender details. Fill up the “From Email” and “From Name”
From Email: The “From Email” should be the email you verified with SparkPost. Check the box to set the return path to match the from. The Return Path indicates where non-delivery receipts or bounce messages are to be sent. If unchecked, bounce messages will be lost. With this enabled,
you’ll be emailed using “From Email” if any messages bounce as a result of issues with the recipient’s email.
From Name: From name can be anything you want.
Get Postmark API Key #
Log into your Postmark account and select your server and then click the “API Tokens” and then copy the token and paste into FluentSMTP.
That’s it 🙂
