Joomla Email Configuration Verifier (JCV)

Testing Joomla Email Settings Made Easy

Puneet Singhal , 13 August, 2013

Team PayPlans attended Joomla Day India on February 2013. Even I was one of the attendee/speaker at the J Day celebration. Over there me and my team noticed multiple bands of people from around the world. All had the spark to contribute to Joomla within them and we were very much inspired by it.

Back home we were restless as we also wanted to do something and add value to our Joomla family. What to Do? We decided to do, what we believe we can do best - coding for Joomla and adding value to Joomla CMS.

How we did that?

“Team PayPlans came up with an idea to contribute new functionalities into the core Joomla usage without a penny charge”. In correspondence to this thought we developed Two Factor Authentication for Joomla, which is a widely used security check from Google.

Coming to the matter in hands- (JCV).

Joomla email Configuration Verifier or shortly called JCV is a freely available, Joomla based utility plugin.

How JCV will help you?

I am sure, for verifying your Joomla site’s email configuration you have to complete a registration of a new user from backend/frontend and check that whether an email has been received or not. Or might be following more complicated procedure with which you might be used-to.

Let’s assume - “What if, somebody could do it automatically, instantly, without any extra overhead and on just one-click”. The thought sounds familiar. Doesn't it?

Now, you can visualize more smarter way to verify the tedious email configurations. Yes, this can be easily done by using this smart plugin. It helps administrators to verify their email configuration settings with just one click. Rest assured JCV will take care of the pain to test all the email settings and inform you of the status.

JCV is even more smarter than this. It is fully Ajaxified and administrators will not need to save the configuration again and again before trying to test the configurations. It reduces this time consuming loop and admin can update values of configuration in run time and then click on “Test Email” button. It will test the email settings with new configurations.
