    Tried multiple variations, even tried sending to groups - no email sent.

    From past experience, I would recommend trying to send e-mail from your web hosting service in another manner: one that you know should work.

    Not knowing who you are hosted by, I cannot give specific advice. But if you have access to cPanel, try using the Webmail feature (Mail-Webmail) to send an e-mail to yourself at your Internet Provider's e-mail address for you NOT to your web site that goes through your web hosting service.

    This will determine if your web host has problems sending e-mail, as opposed to it being a WordPress problem.

    ok, a bit over my head so let me see if I get this right. I am hosted by GoDaddy. I should go to the control panel in my wordpress and send an email to myself, to my regular email not to my webite. I'll try that. Thank you.

    Costomweb, I did not understand your post at all.

    Yes, the point here is to see if you can get ANY e-mails from your web site. If not, then your web host is at fault, and is not sending e-mail, or it is at your end: either you Internet provider or your e-mail software is blocking e-mail from the GoDaddy mail server your web site is assigned to, either as spam or as a mail source with "a bad reputation".

    Adiant,

    Did all the above. Contact forms work (tried several), I've emailed from a PHP script I made from the server, and other websites I have hosted there email. That being said, installed yours a couple times - no email sent.

    You might install and try the plugin: SMTP

    This plugin configures WordPress to use a SMTP server when sending emails instead of the default PHP mail() function.
    It also creates a settings page where you can enter the SMTP server details and authenticatin credentials if needed
