WP Mail Logging Ownership

The ownership of the WordPress Plugin WP Mail Logging has been transferred to MailPoet. Their plans are to keep the plugin alive and maintain it.


I started developing the plugin in 2013 because I had to make sure which mails were sent to whom and when. It just had to be visible to employees through the admin interface of WordPress.

With 70.000+ active installations the plugin became a major player in the field of logging WordPress emails. Some people even wished such a feature would be added to the core of WordPress. I don’t agree with them because the major feature of WordPress is its flexible plugin system.

I have summarized the most important features chronologically.

    Initial Revision


Maintaining a free WordPress plugin with a decent userbase is a time consuming job. Not everyone recognizes your non-profit work and the benefit of a plugin for their own operations or even their business. Thanks to everyone who rated the plugin and contributed in some way. I will focus on other projects and maybe come up with another plugin.

    You deserve it, the plugin is well codef and you can see it was done by a true professional.

    Good luck with your projects.

      Thank you very much! Also for reporting security issues in 2017! I put a lot of effort into protection against XSS since then.
      Good luck with Post SMTP Mailer.

    Thanks Christian for this great plugin!

    I really enjoy using it in my agency’s websites, I feel safer when it is installed ?

    Now I hope that MailPoet will maintain it as a separate plugin and not just cannibalize it…
