Joomla SMTP Mail

Oct 23, 2013 by jomnew
Hi all

I lately installed Joomla 3.1.5 on my server. I faced some issues with my site, but I have been able to manage all of them. Until recently when I was about to publish my site, and was testing and I noticed that no emails were sent per smtp. I doubled checked the configuration and tried different ports, different email accounts, ssl and non secure but nothing worked.
Does anyone know what could be causing this?
I would really appreciate any help on this
Many thanks

Here are some things you can check
- make sure your settings are correct. You can validate them by trying the same settings on a desktop email client
- check with you hosting provider if they have internal mail server for web server apps use
- Find out if your email server refuses the SSL connections from its network
