Wordpress Multisite email configuration
I’m having a problem configuring an email to use with a Wordpress form. The domain,lusagua.pt, is part of a Wordpress multisite. My settings are:
I’m getting the following error:
*“SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host.”
This may also appear as SMTP connect() failed or Called Mail() without being connected in debug output. This is often reported as a PHPMailer problem, but it’s almost always down to local DNS failure, firewall blocking (for example as GoDaddy does) or another issue on your local network. It means that PHPMailer is unable to contact the SMTP server you have specified in the Host property, but doesn’t say exactly why. It can also be caused by not having the openssl extension loaded (See encryption notes below).
Connection: opening to ssl://smtp.office365.com:587, timeout=300, options=array (

Can you help me?
