Email not working

Post by Tree Bones »

3.3.11
Email: General setting not sending mail. No error log details. Searched this board, found no answers that helped.
Spent an hour with inmotion support trying every posable setting for SMTP. No luck. Tried all authentication settings, still not working. All information inputted is correct, quadruple checked.
See screenshots of error logs. Support said to speak to a developer.
No problem sending emails from main site. Been trying to solve this issue over the past to weeks.

Thank you for any help.

From your first image it clearly states “Could not get mail server response codes”. Have you shown your host the error codes? Also, by default, “Allow self-signed SSL certificates” is set to no, did you change that for any particular reason? Can you post an image of the General settings of email settings please?

Thank You Everyone. :D I did finely get mail to work using SMTP, after many hours of support from the host. Below is the setting that worked. I learned that my web host, Inmotion, will noy allow the PHP mail function.
