Note: If your emails include marketing content, you must include an unsubscribe link in all your emails. You can do this at your Domain settings page by enabling the Track unsubscribes option. Alternatively, you can insert unsubscribe links directly in your template inside the Footer block.

That’s it! From now on your WordPress emails will be sent through MailerSend’s SMTP server instead of through your web host. You can track all email activity on the Activity page in your MailerSend account.
