Wordpress does not send emails

  • Posted January 20, 2014

Hello, first I apologize for the english I’m using google translator.

I’m trying to make my wordpress send emails to more than two days without success, I tried all possible tutorials that are available here.

Tried using exim4, postfix, sendmail is unable to send an email successfully through the wordpress with such options or email test by WP-SMTP plugin.

Please can someone give me some light on how I can make my wordpress send emails?

Only need it to send emails to a contact form work.

Olá Pessoal, Não sei quantos de vocês ainda estão com o mesmo problema. Eu estava… não estou mais… A questao principal é que a DigitalOcean BLOQUEIA SMTP ou Email via SO para alguns usuários em certos contextos. Na prática: novos usuários não podem enviar email a partir de um droplet.

Para resolver isso: Abra um ticket. Eles vao te explicar que fazem isso por questao de segurança, mas após te perguntar mais algumas informações eles podem te conceder este direito.

No meu caso, ainda precisei instalar e configurar o postifix. Apos isso, funcionou tudo certinho

Espero ter ajudado

Estou com o mesmo problema da função wp_mail( ); , testei na hostgator, fucionou o email acusando de phising mas enviou, phpMailer resolve??? estou vendo que tem problemas no relacionamento de posts.

Setting up your own email server is a nightmare. I’ve also found that if you use Gmail for transactional email, they sometimes block it since it looks like spam.

I just set up my Wordpress instance to use Mandrill and it couldn’t have been easier to set up. Currently you can send up to 12k emails for free, which is more than the amount I need to send. Sign up for an account, install the WP plugin, enter your API key and you’re good to go.

Olá Leandro você conseguiu configurar o disparo do email do WP?

Totally, utterly lost trying to follow a hundred different tutorials, suggestions, tests, etc.

  • echo test works
  • using Fast Secure Contact Form test email works
  • I receive automatic confirmation emails

But the original email is never received!

Sounds like you I had a nightmare of a time setting up emails to work. I’ve been at it for almost 3 days on just this issue. Finally got it to work following this tutorial: <br> <br> <br> <br>My personal setup: <br> <br>Configured MX records for microsoft Outlook which I’ve been incredibly impressed with. I’m talking about the web version which used to be hotmail. So far it seems to be a cleaner email system than gmail or yahoo and you can set it up with your own domain name for free unlike gmail which charges you $50/year for their google apps version. You’ll need to google search this though. <br> <br>Then wait until the MX records on digital ocean are all set (up to 24 hours) and go activate your Outlook mail with your domain instead of <br> <br>Once I could send/recieve emails from this, I just had to follow the tutorial at the above link. <br> <br>I did not have to install postfix or anything else on my server for this to work.

I did the tests and when I check in my inbox emails have not received any email. Tested with the gmail, yahoo and outlook and all have been unsuccessful.

Fiz os testes e quando verifico na minha caixa de e-mails não tenho recebido nenhum email. Testei com o gmail, outlook e yahoo e em todos não tenho tido sucesso.
