Unable to send emails via SMTP

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I recently moved my WHMCS to another hosting and come to know that my WHMCS installation sending system emails via phpmail instead of SMTP , so I just updated my settings to send emails via my smtp account.

Now the problem is WHMCS can't able to send any email, it showing a timeout page after about 30 sec.

I also asked sendgrid support (smtp provider) about this, they told me to whitelist server ip, I did that.

but problem not solved.

 

Here is the error msg from activity log: Email Sending Failed - SMTP connect() failed.

github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting

 

 

What I can assure that my entered smtp details are correct, and even worked on my previous hosting ( hosted on a vps).

 

So, please look into the matter and help me if I made any mistake.

Thanks.

Sometimes this problem can be caused by using the wrong ports.

 

Who is your provider? Maybe you can change your ports, I know of a lot of providers that block port 25. thus, you'd need to send mail through 465..

 

Let's us know so I can help you further.

 

Nick.
