    Managed WordPress SMTP configure

    Hi, I am using Managed Wordpress Pro 5 Package. I have a contact form in my site, that sends a email to my secondary account. However, the sender's email address is wordpress@[domain_name].com. Where [domain_name] is the domain name of my site. 

    I want to alter the sender email address. I dont currently have any email packages on the godaddy. Even if I did, how can I configure managed wordpress site to use different SMTP.

    This is actually not an SMTP issue but rather a WordPress configuration - This is a standard setup with WordPress and is done to help with SPAM. Contact Form 7 for example requires you to use an email at the domain name for sending. 

     

    I found that for the most part the default built in server mail functionality works fine. For the few sites where I had an issue. I used Amazon SES ($0.10/1000 emails sent) and it worked fine
