<span itemprop="name">Disable Emails</span>

Download

Stop a WordPress website from sending any emails using the standard wp_mail() function. No emails will be sent, not even for password resets or administrator notifications.

WordPress websites can send emails for a variety of reasons — user registration, password reset, enquiry form submission, ecommerce purchase — but sometimes you don’t want it to send anything at all. Some reasons for disabling all emails:

  • demonstration websites that allow users to do things that normally send emails
  • development / test websites with live data that might email real customers
  • bulk-loading data into websites which might trigger emails
  • adding new sites into multisite installations
