Ever think of seeing your WordPress email logs?

Yes, you can check where your email goes, who receives, and detailed logs from your WordPress dashboard.

Keeping an eye on your email logs is important. You may organize your email and would want to know if someone missed a mail, then you have to check your email logs.

Today I’ll share how can view and monitor your email logs that used to send from your WordPress site.

It’s a very easy method, but some beginners fail to shape it the correct way. Don’t worry, I’m going to show you the method step by step for enabling email logs on your WordPress dashboard.

Requirements for Setting-up Email logs

For enabling email logs and monitor them, we need to install the WP Mail SMTP plugin on your WordPress site.

WP Mail SMTP is your all in all email solution for WordPress. It’s a plugin by WPForms.

I’ve received many emails from people telling me this- they are facing email problems, their email sending gets failed, they aren’t receiving emails, etc.

However, let’s set you up with the email logs!

  • After activating the plugin, Navigate to WP Mail SMTP > Email Log.

  • Now if you are interested to keep a record of content for all emails, check the “Log Email Content” box.
  • But I discourage you to use this option as it will store all the content data as plain text in your WordPress database. It’s all up to you.
  • Press “Save” and that’s all.
  • From now on, this will store all your email logs and detailed information and you can monitor them directly from your WordPress dashboard.
  • For viewing WordPress email logs, navigate to WP Mail SMTP » Email Log.
  • This will show you all your email logs.
