Admin emails not being received

Post by daftcyborg » Mon Nov 27, 2017 7:55 pm

Hi Everyone,

As an admin, I am not receiving admin emails including test emails and new user sign ups. These are the Email settings I have for SMTP:

Use SMTP server for email: Yes
SMTP server address: ssl://
SMTP server port: 465
Authentication Method for SMTP: PLAIN
SMTP username:
SMTP password: ********
Verify SSL certificate: No
Verify SMTP peer name: No
Allow self-signed SSL certificates: No

The error log message I get is as follows:

admin Mon Nov 27, 2017 7:42 pm Email error

Could not connect to smtp host : 110 : Connection timed out

Errno 2: stream_socket_client(): unable to connect to ssl:// (Connection timed out) at [ROOT]/includes/functions_messenger.php line 1123

Any ideas what the problem could be?

I would TRULY appreciate any help!
