Why is this necessary?

When working in a development environment more than likely the PHP mail function is not going to work. I found that most of the SMTP plugins available on do way too much. This plugin does one thing and one thing only… Sends WordPress email using SMTP.

You can now easily test your forms in dev without installing a mail server!
