Support » Plugin: Mail List » [Plugin: Mail List] Error when sending mail

  • I am trying to send an email with configure smtp. The test works within that app but when trying to send from yours I get

    Warning: mail(): Failed to connect to mailserver at “localhost” port 25, verify your “SMTP” and “smtp_port” setting in php.ini or use ini_set() in \menu_send.php on line 22

    And then it also says it sends correctly. The problem is I never get the email

    Hallo, about the second question that i’ve received directly by email:

    I got that portion to work. Thank you so much for the help. I now have an issue when I type an email address in on the website I never get the email to confirm….. is there any code that give me a debug of why this happens or can you clarify?

    Check if the mail php function works on your server
    Ref: Mail PHP

    Create a new .php file like this:


    mail(‘’, ‘My Subject’, $message);


    Check also in the spam folder.

    I have checked spam and I am not using mail php. I have moved this to configure smtp. I then also made some changes to the mail function in php.ini for my smtp settings. I am getting the newsletters, but not the confirmation emails. Does it not use the same send function?

    I also removed the configure smtp and just setup everything in the php.ini which works correctly for all outgoing emails for everything except for when I type in my email on your form. Any ideas?

    Hallo, both the newsletter and the confirmation email make use of mail() function.

    Check if your email address is not already in the mailing list, in this case you will not receive more confirmation email.

    my exported list has 1 email address, but when I try and add through the internal tool it says it is already in the list. Feels like a flag is there and not showing it

    The import procedure add only email that are not already in the list, do not remove the previous list.
