Mini Mail Dashboard Widget WordPress Plugin

This plugin by Marcel Bokhorst enables site admin to send and receive e-mail messages on the administration panel and optionally receive SMS messages containing the sender, subject and (part of) the text when new messages arrive.

All e-mail is text based (HTML will be converted to text). However, it is possible to view HTML messages and to download attachments. Mail can be received by POP3 or IMAP and sent by PHP mail or SMTP. There is a simple address book for both e-mail addresses and phone numbers, which can optionally be populated by your WordPress users.

This plugin requires at least PHP 5.2.4.

Goto Tools, Mini Mail.

Select at least a receive method in the Mail section
Fill in the POP3 or IMAP settings
Sending mail

PHP mail is the simplest to use and probably allowed by your hosting provider.

Sending SMS

Fill in the SMS settings
Save the settings

The General settings are site-wide and only accessible for users with manage_options capability (administrators). All other settings are user specific.
