  • I have fixed it but messages go to spam. How do I fix it

    I installed your plugin WP MAIL SMTP to allow wordpress send mails out. I did the test and it said successful but mails drop in spam. please help

    About spam: the mail server on may be blacklisted. Change the server (postfix?) settings, perhaps IP address and the whole host.
    Another problem: with TLS encryption you should be using port 587, and NOT 465.
    Port 465 is for SSL primarily.
