I do apologise if this topic is answered elsewhere, or has been rehashed over and over again, but I'm at the point of tearing my hair out with it.
I do need my website to successfully send emails.
My system details are as follows:
Apache 2.2.15 (CentOS 6.4), PHP 5.3.3, MySQL 5.1.69.
Wordpress 3.5.2 with Kit MacAllister's Brunelleschi 1.6.5
The site is here: http://ebookswest.com.au
On initial installation, when I entered my new admin details I actually did receive an email advising me of the fact, but nothing since.
I have tested and tested email but while it says 'email sent' I never receive any.
I have checked SMTP Port 25 from my server firewall through the router all the way through my ISP, and it's open all the way through.
I have run an open port checker with the result: 'Port 25, SMTP is open and accepting connections'.
I have telnet into the server via PuTTY with the result: '220 s3.site211media.com.au ESMTP Sendmail 8.14.4/8.07 +0800'.
I have sent email from both KMail and Thunderbird mail clients on the server and they are delivered almost immediately.
Please, somebody explain to me how I can get WordPress to send emails finally.
Alternatively, please direct me to an already resolved post.
Thanks in anticipation, and kindest regards to all here,
