Support » Fixing WordPress » Stopped receiving e-Mails (e.g. notifications) from my WordPress site

  • Diekleinenic


    I noticed a few days ago that I stopped receiving ANY and all e-Mails from my WordPress site including contact messages (that go through a plugin) or new user subscriptions that go directly through WordPress as well as ANY other e-Mails or notifications, not receiving a single thing.

    Does anyone have any ideas what may have caused it and even more importantly, how I can fix it??
    It is very important to me that I receive all contact messages, comment and new user notifications immediately into my e-Mail inbox.
    I made sure that all my e-Mail address everywhere are correct and I even changed it to my e-Mail in case it had been going to spam, but it still doesn’t work.
    There is not change or event on my end that I can tie to the day it stopped working. =/

    I tried to run it through STMP – I configured it Monday morning and tried to test it a few times and it didn’t work. The next morning it started working, all e-Mails and notifications worked (except for my security backup and new user registration e-Mails). I tried to send another test e-Mail through STMP and all of the sudden everything stopped working again.

    I checked my error logs and the only two things I see that may be related are:
    [Thu Jan 03 11:53:19 2013] [error] [client xxx] Premature end of script headers: job_run.php
    [Thu Jan 03 12:44:51 2013] [error] [client xxx] request failed: error reading the headers

    But I don’t really want to turn on debugging on my live site that gets so many visitors a day, because I am afraid of breaking something and then it would take me a while and a lot of stress to get it back live up and running. So I would like to try to resolve this without turning on debugging.
    FYI, my hosting is GoDaddy. I know, I have heard a lot of bad things about GoDaddy and I will consider switching in the future, but I currently do not have the time to do that, so I would like to try to get it fixed for now.

    There is one thing I haven’t tried yet and that is changing any of my DNS settings?! I wasn’t sure if I should add or change any of them to or if the setting in the STMP plugin would make changing the DNS manually unnecessary.

    Please please please help if you know anything I can do to find out what causes the issue and how I may be able to fix it.
