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.
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”.
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.
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
