WordPress Email Problem
Ran into some problems getting WordPress to send email.
Running WordPress 3.0 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and IIS 7.
Spent the better part of a day trying diferent things…
- Various SMTP WordPress plugins
- Various SMTP server settings
- Various firewall rules
- Google, google, google
- Sifting through logs for any hint of what the problem might be
- More coffee
Thanks to Mario Vargas’ blog post I got pointed in the right direction. I’m not hosting at GoDaddy, but his info helped get me straightened out.
The WordPress plugin WP-Mail-SMTP was the fix!!! It reconfigures the wp_mail() function to use SMTP instead of mail() and creates an options page to manage the settings.
