      If somebody was that sensitive the would last watching primetime television as there are heaps of firearms in movie commercials all the time.

    If you are using GoDaddy I was able to get the e-mail forms to work by not creating the additional support e-mail address but just going to "E-mail Routing" in CPanel and then changing it to "Remote Mail Exchanger" . They were at least coming through at that point but were still going to "Junk" A Godaddy rep added some entry into the DNS table or something to help with that. Hopefully that helps someone if you are on GoDaddy or if you are a low level Sugar Daddy.

    Hi Adam. Thanks for the great video!
    I use my email account that I created in cPanel in Gmail, and my emails still go to spam when sent from within Gmail and Outlook. Even the cPanel emails from employees of the same company (sent internally to each other) end up in spam, e.g. my boss's emails to me (from Outlook to Gmail) end up in spam. Do you maybe have a solution to this too?

    Hi Adam, first of all, THANK YOU for your work, it's one of the most professional I have found on youtube in a long time. Now I am wondering whether you could tell me how to manage your e-mail account. For now, the only thing I know is that I have to log in to my Cpanel, scroll down to e-mail and then check them. Is there a way where I can just receive it as we do in Gmail? I have my web linked to active campaign if that helps.
    MASSIVE THANK YOU in advance for your time and KEEP IT UP

    I watched 2 others on creating one with gmail smtp and unfortunately google changed it so the videos don't match up. So this looks great. But, you didn't answer the Alexander Dz's question (which I think is important) "What do you do with these two lines of code? The plugin suggests to put it in the wp-config file. Is it necessary?
    define( 'WPMS_ON', true );
    define( 'WPMS_SMTP_PASS', 'your_password' ); If we do that, then do we delete the password?
