I am trying to set up wordpress to send emails from my domain but I am having issues. The domain is set up on a wordpress database on a recently created droplet. My email host is zoho.
I have configured the mx records in networking correctly to allow zoho to send and receive email. It works great.
However, I can’t send emails from wordpress. I am using divi contact module and emails are not sending. I have installed Easy WP SMTP plugin as a solution. I have inputted the correct host settings. However, when i try to send a test email I get the following error:
SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Connection timed out (110)SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting
The SMTP configuration settings I am using are as follows:
SMTP Host: smtp.zoho.com Type of Encryption: SSL SMTP Port: 465
Has anyone experienced the same issue and found a solution?
