wp_mail return-path

Description

This plugin sets the PHPMailer Sender (return-path) the same as the From address if it’s not correctly set.

Mitigates the “via” and “The actual sender of” Notification in Outlook and stops email going to spam/junk because of the mismatch between From and Return-Path headers.

This usually occurs on shared hosting servers when local user / domain is used as default for the return-path header and WordPress only sets the From header.

Installation

  1. Unzip all files to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Log into WordPress admin and activate the ‘Latest Tweets’ plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu

Needed to be able to set return-path email header in my WordPress emails so that they don’t get flagged as spam. This plugin does the trick.

Works with 4.7.4. I’m also using gravity forms and Avada theme. Installing it was quick and it removed the “via” header from emails sent from my site’s gravity forms notifications to gmail. There’s more to removing the via header (DKIM, SPF, From header, etc) but this was the missing piece for my site.
