Mailgun is an email delivery service aimed at sending transactional email for software developers. If you are not already using Mailgun to send email, then you don’t need or want this plugin. If you do use the Mailgun service, this plugin makes it easy to configure Wordpress to send through your existing Mailgun domains. That’s the only reason for it. It does that quite well. Many of the negative reviews seem to be for some other plugin, as they refer to functions that this plugin does not provide such as web forms, email delivery logs, validation, etc. Ignore such reviews, they’re simply irrelevant. One star taken off for being slow to update, but it’s not a deal-breaker.

I don’t know why this plugin has so many bad reviews – I use it on all my sites and it’s working well for me, so I come to do a good deed and leave a positive review here. Mailgun offers a free plan with 1000 emails for free per month, even though they made it tricky to activate this plan now. PS: Mailgun, you should add the feature to send a test email to the recipient of our choice, so we can use tools to check deliverability

Not sure why this plugin has such poor reviews. It’s been nothing but smooth sailing for us for many years using it to provide reliable email sending from many dozens of sites for our agency’s clients.

We use the plugin (with the Mailgun API functionality) since begin of 2023. All works out-of-the box. After adding the ‘mg_use_recipient_vars_syntax’ hook (see FAQ/description) to our functions.php file, also the Mailgun batch sending functionality works as expected.
