Support » Networking WordPress » Email not delivering to gmail at all

  • I am running a multisite install of WordPress. None of the system messages are getting delivered to gmail. I’ve tested sending to a non gmail address and it works fine. They don’t go to spam – they just don’t get there at all.

    I installed Configure SMTP based on other posts I found, and it didn’t work, even when I changed the from address to be a real, non google address on my servers.

    This is affecting all sites as far as I can tell. Can anyone help me figure this out?

    Check your server mail log and see if the mail is sent at all. If it is… it’s gmail :/ You’ll have to check the logs to see if there’s a bounceback message at all.

    So I checked the logs – all a bit of nonsense to me. I think this means it sent correctly – this is definitely a related record – i was test sending to my address (which is a google apps address). Does this mean it sent? I don’t see any bounce message – again, not sure what I’m looking for here…

    I had this problem before but not sure if my issue is the same as the one you are having. Mine had something to do with me setting up as a alias account that I can also send from using gmail. At the same time, I was forwarding to

    See these links that might help you if your problem is the same as mine:!topic/apps/TKhjv7UbJ9c


    Hey Mike – I appreciate that, but that isn’t what is happening in my case. It is not an alias, and I checked my sent mail in any case and nothing there.

    You may need to ask your webhost for some help here. GoogleApps though is not exactly the same as gmail.
