I am new to WP so not aware of how this works.
I installed a theme on my page and the theme comes with a contact form. the theme has a 'Email Address for Contact Form' field where i have specified my email address for receiving contact emails. when i try to test this i always get 'Your email failed. Try again later.'
I also created a separate contact form using the contact template separately from the theme above but there also i get the same error 'Your email failed. Try again later.'
I'm wondering where do we specify the POP mail server settings for the contact form to work? I saw a 'Post via e-mail' option under Settings->Writing where it asks for mail server, mail id and password.
I'm not sure why we need a id and password here if this is the place where we specify the POP mail server name for email transmissions.
