Description (last modified by slaFFik)

I'm talking about this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-email-to-wp-mail-from-bridge/

I'm pretty sure, that the code of this plugin (just 1 function) should be in core.
Most of users just don't know that BP Emails "forked" wp_mail(), so they will be surprised, that their filters don't work.

Developers know the filter doesn't work, site owners only know that, maybe, emails aren't being delivered since 2.5. The decision at launch was to require people to re-implement such filters using our new API, but, it turns out that SMTP is a very finicky beast.

I have been tracking as many email support threads on the forums as I can since the 2.5 release. From sites/owners I have spoken to, the absence of wp_mail_from and/or wp_mail_from_name filters does seem to cause certain SMTP servers to refuse to deliver email depending on configuration, though I am still following up with 2 or 3 people via email to be 100% sure. At least, I can ask them now to try this plugin to easily prove/disprove this.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 2.5.3

Yes, we should do this for 2.5.3.

@thebrandonallen I know it's a relatively simple filter plugin, but FYI. Thanks for building a convenient plugin to let the community have an option in the interim, and for providing an easy way to get regular users to test a proposed change. :)
