5. Now for the Notify Admin for signup I did yes but if you have a huge community I don’t really recommend it but it is your choice. So just read the form and you can just fill it out and remember to press save settings when you are done.

032218 0445 Howtomakean15 - HOW TO MAKE AN INSTANT NEWSLETTER ON YOUR WORDPRESS SITE

As you can see that it sent the subscription mail almost instantly! Also, if you don’t see it in the inbox of your mail I actually found it in the spam folder so it is okay!

So hope you guys enjoy- wait a second what if it doesn’t work at all? Well I got the method just for you!

10. So now go to the add new plugin section and search up SMTP and go for the plugin that is in the picture. Now press Install now and also activate it.

032218 0445 Howtomakean18 - HOW TO MAKE AN INSTANT NEWSLETTER ON YOUR WORDPRESS SITE
11. Now that you are done downloading go to the settings and go to WP Mail SMTP

12. Sadly, you have to use an actual email if this happens because you would have to do something else to your email. I can help with the Microsoft and the Gmail SMTP but if you use something else then sadly I don’t really know and you have to research by yourself. So, this is the Microsoft SMTP and this is the Gmail SMTP and remember to turn the Authentication on. After you are done filling the boxes out by following the instructions on either of the forms press Save Settings test it out on the test settings and if it is good then you are good to go and ready to send Newsletter Subscriptions!

Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this blog and I will be seeing you in the next one! Bye
