I've been troubleshooting this all day - reading various blogs and message posts on it. I'm currently hosted at godaddy, and though various advice I have installed the WP-Mail-SMTP and followed this guys instructions:
I was excited at first because I indeed got the (bool = true) and thought it was fixed. I've sent test emails successfully, but the "Contact 7" that I installed does not work - nor do emails that are supposed to notify me of comment updates. I'm not sure if the problem is related to either, but I wanted to figure out why WP isn't sending me email notifications first. I've got the appropriate email address in the GENERAL SETTINGS and the USER SETTINGS for admin.
If I were a little more advanced I might be able to fix this, but I'm afraid I've reached my ceiling here. Any ideas?
