To set up a Fallback email with Post SMTP, you can configure a backup email server to send messages through in case the primary server is unavailable. Here are the steps to set up a Fallback email with Post SMTP:

Install and activate the Post SMTP plugin on your WordPress site.

Postsmtp plugin

Go to the plugin settings and configure the primary email server. This will be the server that Post SMTP will use to send messages by default.

Save the settings.

Note: Now, whenever the primary server is unavailable, Post SMTP will automatically switch to the backup server to send messages.

It’s important to test the Fallback email server to ensure that it’s configured correctly and that the message is sent to the correct email address.

When setting up a Fallback email with Post SMTP, it’s important to have a backup plan in place in case the primary email server goes down or is experiencing issues. This ensures that your emails are still being sent and received, even if there is a problem with your primary email server.

The Post SMTP plugin allows you to configure a secondary email server as a Fallback option. This means that if the primary server cannot send an email, the plugin will automatically switch to the fallback server and send the message through that instead. This process is transparent to the user, and the email will be sent as if it were sent through the primary server.
In addition to configuring a fallback server, the Post SMTP plugin also provides several other advanced features to help improve the reliability and deliverability of your emails. These include options for customizing the sender name and address, setting up custom SMTP headers, and enabling SSL/TLS encryption for added security.

It’s also important to test the fallback server to ensure that it’s configured correctly and that messages are being sent to the correct email address. This can be done by sending a test email through the fallback server and checking that it was received correctly.

Setting up a Fallback email with Post SMTP is an important step in ensuring the reliability and deliverability of your emails. It allows you to have a backup plan in place in case of any issues with the primary email server and ensures that your emails are still being sent and received, even if there is a problem with the primary server.
