Test Email - Swift Mailer: Failed to create cache directory (5 posts)

    I'm setting up a backup job and trying to send a test email. However it keeps coming up with the error;
    'Swift Mailer: Failed to create cache directory C:/Server/Apache2/htdocs/events/wp-content/uploads/backwpup-98372-temp/5196006f2a997 Error while sending e-mail!'

    Sounds like a permission issue but I've not had this problem on any other site. I've checked the permissions and they are the same as other sites.

    Any ideas?

    Hi muffintop,

    do you receive other email notifications from your site like when a comment is awaiting moderation?

    Hi there,

    I'm also having a similar problem. When clicking the Test Email button I get the following:

    Warning: mkdir() [function.mkdir]: No such file or directory in /path/to/domain/root/wpadmin/wp-content/plugins/backwpup/sdk/SwiftMailer/classes/Swift/KeyCache/DiskKeyCache.php on line 277
    Swift Mailer: Failed to create cache directory /path/to/domain/root/wpadmin/wp-content/uploads/backwpup-4a048-temp/51d3b1db4f365Error while sending e-mail!

    I've verified the /path/to/domain/root/ portion is correct. I have received emails from my site when I created user accounts as well as sending credentials to a test user email address.

    When looking at the file structure, /path/to/domain/root/wpadmin/wp-content/uploads/backwpup-4a048-temp does not yet exist.

    Thanks for your help!

    Sorry, I meant to mention I also tried chmoding wp-content to 775 and 777, went back to the backwpup dashboard, tried the test email again, and still got the message.

    Update: It seems the problem is only with the Test Email bit. I tried running the job manually and got the email with the backup.
