This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest three major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Mail Debug


This plugin when activated automatically redirects all email sent through wp_mail/phpmailer to the user currently logged in or the site administrator.

The redirected email contains information about where the original email would have been sent to.

Use this plugin if you want to test email-sending features without actually sending emails our to anyone but yourself. I wrote this plugin to ease debugging with subscribe2.

Since Version 1.2 you can choose whether to redirect all email to the currently logged in user (default), the site administrator (only wpmu) or the blog administrator.


Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.
