Support » Plugin: Easy Digital Downloads » Email receipt & sale notifications suddenly stopped working

  • Resolved zoondich



    I’ve got the last version of EDD installed. It always worked well untill now.

    But suddenly, Email receipts and sale notifications are not being sent anymore.

    Got Postman SMTP plugin installed wich is working great with other plugins like Contact Form 7. I tried to deactivate all other plugins but did’nt work either.

    I did a test with testmail.php like you wrote on your page. It worked fine:

    I also tried the check email plugin, but this specific one didn’t work.

    Any hint?

    Thank you

    That all looks fine.

    As a quick test, could you replace your SMTP plugin with SendGrid?

    Does that resolve it?

    Didn’t work

    Thanks anyway 🙂

    I’ll be more than happy to continue helping.

    Would you still like to resolve this?

    Thank you for your support Pipin, but I don’t want to spend too much time trying to solve this specific issue with your great plugin.

    I have noticed that people increasingly prefer online streaming than mp3 downloading.

    That is why, I have decided to change the way of selling my music. I am proposing now a streaming service with a membership access plugin instead.

    Hoping it will give better sales results, because downloading mp3 didn’t sell at all for years.

    Have a great Christmas holidays season.



    Finally solved the problem by installing Easy WP SMTP:

    Every thing work great now!
