Wordpress install on LEMP stack 16.06 not sending email
I have recently tried to switch from using a LAMP stack to a LEMP stack for running wordpress installs. The speed and performance seem noticeable from install. There are however, still some major holes in the docs on getting everything set-up and running nice.
When I install wordpress on a LAMP stack (whether following the tuts on DO or using the one-click install) the application seems to send mails out of the box.
I’ve just finished installing a LEMP Stack and Wordpress using this tutorial:
the server has been set up using the suggested links as well. but there are no emails being sent from my server. I can only assume that apache ships with some extra bits for these purposes. I was going to start working through this tutorial:
and have postfix working as a send only SMTP but I’m not 100% sure this is the right route to take.
How do I go about enabling outgoing emails? Where do I find the relevant data for troubleshooting the issue and am I going to need to set-up Postfix?
Thanks in advance.
