  • a quick fix would be to install a plugin like wp-smtp and just set the smtp with a gmail account. Then all of your emails will be sent through gmail.

    however, if you want to work on getting sendmail working, what OS are you using?

  • Linux is the OS.

    I have actually thought about the plugin but i wanted to do away with that since all i wanted is to receive notifications while i use my private mail to send mails.

    Like i said again, it purely a LEMP one-click install config.

    Thanks again for your response
