Email Failure advice


Recommended Posts

As the title suggest, I'm having trouble setting up my Email. But before I make a ticket, I thought I'd try here.

I've tried using both my original gmail and my new google apps account for my domain.

When I try PHP I get the error "email could not be sent" - when I try SMTP I get "Connection refused".

If I disable my firewall I get the same result.

Any advice or ideas for troubleshooting?

I'm sorry, I should have come back and mentioned that I made it work for my google apps for work email.

Mail delivery method: SMTP
SMTP Host: smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Protocol: SSL
SMTP Port: 465
SMTP Username: my email address
SMTP Password: my email password
The main difficulty was getting google to play along; I needed to find a way to make it accept IPS4 as a less secure app. https://support.google.com/a/answer/6260879?hl=en
It was a bit difficult and it's been a while, so I can't remember exactly what I did. But as I remember it, I needed to somehow unlock the ability to accept less secure apps.
Feel free to ask again if you're completely stuck, I'll see if I can jog my memory then.

Fixed mine basically the same way using an email setting from my cpanel.

Mail delivery method:   SMTP

SMTP Host:   mail.mydomain.com

SMTP Protocol:    Standard / Plaintext

SMTP Port:    25

SMTP Username:    webmaster@mydomain.com

SMTP Password:    mysmtppassword

And all is working perfect.
