Error while sending Test Email
By , for WP 4.4.2

Hi There,
Greetings...!!!
We have a domain on which we deployed Configure SMTP to send out emails of the Inquiry / Contact Form. Just after configuration by sending out a Test Email, it shows error "An error was encountered while trying to send the test e-mail.
SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting"
Looking forward for your Expert Comments / Inputs / Solution.
Regards,

After weeks of testing and trying different fixes for my email problem this little plugin had the issue resolved in 10 minutes. Thank you so much for this miracle fix. Wish I would have tried it first.

Despite no recent updates on this plugin, really works fine! Specially usefull on web hosting providers with bad email service infrastructure, this plugin will help.

Life saver!

Works great.

Installed this plugin over 2 years ago and it has worked very nicely the entire time. Had to use this because of Dreamhost. However, we just dumped Dreamhost and no longer need Configure SMTP, but I did want to say something nice before we go!

My most important plugin

Scott Riley's Configure SMTP is always the first Plugin I add in all of my installs.

I hope this continues to be maintained and available for all of us! This one is great work!

Works well!

For the security reasons I only allow authenticated email on my VPS server. This plugin makes it possible for WP to send alerts via SMTP.

Thank you!
