Using MailHawk as a Transactional Email Service with LifterLMS


# Top

MailHawk is a paid service which that makes WordPress email delivery simple. MailHawk can be quickly installed through LifterLMS making it easy to setup and install. Within minutes your LifterLMS emails will be automatically sent through MailHawk avoiding the many hassles and pitfalls of email delivery in WordPress.

Why MailHawk?

# Top

Email delivery from a WordPress site is often unreliable so using a transactional email service, like MailHawk, offloads mail delivery from your server to a server specifically configured to quickly and reliably deliver emails.

MailHawk is comparable to transactional services like Mandrill or Mailgun but it’s designed very specifically to work with WordPress and unlike these services, MailHawk takes only a few minutes to install and configure and requires absolutely no technical expertise for basic configuration.
