Mail problems, Windows Server (4 posts)

    I am having issues with sending mail from WordPress. I was using Contact

    Form 7 (which always give the red box 'Failed to send your message.

    Please try later or contact the administrator by another method.') along

    with "Clean and simple contact form" and a few others. I have used the

    generic PHP mail and SMTP Mail plug in but cannot get a mail sent.

    I have trawled the net and tried many, many solutions with success and

    now I need a bit of expert help!

    What I really need to do, rather than try umpteen tests is to creep

    forward trying various steps until I find out exactly where the problem


    Is there a link, or a list, that someone can provide me with? If this is

    something that is covered by Premium support then I will give it a go.

    Can you verify with your webhost that some additional steps are not required based on the windows hosting environment? Is this host account a free one?

    The server is mine, and I have root access so I can do the checks - I just need to know which ones.

    I have smartermail installed as well so I wondered if there was some interference but cannot find anything relevant on the interweb.

    That should have read *without success* above BTW!
