Configure SMTP
Works on 2 sites but cannot connect to SMTP host on 3rd (1 post)

    Hi there.

    I've used this plugin for a while, perfectly on 2 sites.

    Today I tried setting up on a 3rd, also using Gmail and I get the following error:

    An error was encountered while trying to send the test e-mail.
    SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host.

    Is there a way to debug or try and find out what is causing the problem. The gmail account is set up and sending and receiving email. I've double-checked and password etc are all correct.

    The only difference is this 3rd website is on a different host but not sure that is the problem as I've just moved one of the previous sites (where it is working fine) to this same host and tested it and it still works. Besides (I'm assuming using Gmail instead of your host to send and recieve email is a bypass.)

    Any feedback appreciated if anyone has a hint or suggestion.
    thanks
