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.

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.
