  1. Hey! I got this error . I already Allow less secure apps: ON …But i still have this SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: (0)SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting..

  2. Hi Bjorn – I don't get one thing: if Gmail is the problem, why are you typing in non-Gmail accounts into the form? What I mean is – my business email is a gmail account. Sooo…can I use that in the easy wp form and have it work?

  3. The verification mail is not coming…Easy WP SMTP plugin has got update (Type of Encryption)has been changed to SSL/TLS… its not helping at all.

  4. Showing this message:

    Following error occured when attempting to send test email:
    SMTP Error: Could not authenticate.

    CLIENT -> SERVER: AUTH LOGIN
    CLIENT -> SERVER: bWRkb2ZpbmRpYUB5YWhvby5jb20=
    CLIENT -> SERVER: bWFsYXlhbGVl
    SMTP ERROR: Password command failed: 535 5.7.1 Authentication failed
    SMTP Error: Could not authenticate.CLIENT -> SERVER: QUIT
    SMTP Error: Could not authenticate.

    Please tell me what's wrong

  5. For me here, the default form works properly but all the other forms I create shows error message "Failed…"

    So I came to the conclusion that probably the web hosting is the reason. Well, I also think web hosting providers can not create such an issue where all hosts know the WordPress requirement.

    So I am not sure what actually causing the problem. I should move to other plugins because I am receiving mails from companies and individuals, so the default form is not sufficiant I need to create one more form for advertisement request.

  6. I am having this same issue and after attempting to use the alternate plugin and contacting the host for my clients site (network solutions) I cannot send SMTP through their mail server. I downloaded Flamingo and that is capturing the form but is there any reason why the emails aren't going through? The host did a test and nothing seems to be out of the ordinary. He said, "I am pretty good with the forms and the email and I cannot see where it is going but on the server it is telling me all is fine for the functionality of the mail on the server for the hosting package and then all associated to it."

    I am open to suggestions. I have never had an issue with this form before but I have never worked with this host before either.

  7. How do you change the FROM email to the Contact Form 7 [your-email] I would prefer to see the contact pop up in Outlook instead of myself as it is slightly irritating. This is so i can easily add the contact to my contacts list's within Outlook, i can also see a customer asking me this in the future.

  8. Hi, I just have a question for you. On the video, you enter the email not ending with gmail.com. I am a little confused about it. Because my gmail account has @gmail.com after. I am lost there. Can you explain it more. Thanks

  9. Hey brother…great vids. My contact form doesn't display properly.It is there but hard to see. I have oceanwp theme and I have a black body background throughout all 7 pages. The last page is the contact page with the form but cannot for the life of me figure out how to lighten the blackground around the contact form without changing the black background of the other 6 pages..I want to keep them black?? Thank you

  10. Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /wp-content/plugins/easy-wp-smtp/easy-wp-smtp.php on line 214

  11. Hi Brother, I have the almost same problem.When anybody try to send an email through my contact form on website, it shows " There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later." I have tried to install the plugin you suggest and done all accordingly, but nothing works. PLEASE ADVISE A SOLUTION?

  12. Hey, after I saved my settings and want to do a test mail nothing is happening? I'm using google mail. What is going on? I do get a error in WordPress; SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: (0)SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting

  13. Hi, I tried to send a test messgae and this error comes. SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: (0)SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting

    Please let me know what should I do

  14. Helpful video. It would be great if you could describe why the emails don't go out in the first place and why this plugin is needed.

  15. So this did not fix my contact form 7 issues. I used the provided fields for gmail and put in my proper password/email and still nothing, having issues with the SMTP code. SMTP.gmail.com doesn't work. Or maybe its the 587 or whatever number it was. Frustrating that wp has this issue. You make a site with an email then ALL E-MAILS from any part of that site should go to your provided e-mail with ZERO issues! IM FRUSTRATED TO THE MAX. [email protected] if WP gives a shit.

  16. there is an issue with form 7 and mail chimp in doesn't work WP, how to overcome this problem with mail chimp WP thanks

  17. You're setting up the configuration for Gmail but adding a email server id and password? What is the purpose of that?

  18. I tried, but it didnt work. This is what appears on my Test email WP Simple SMTP: SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: (0)SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting

  19. Hi, I'm sorry, I have a query with contact form 7.
    When sending a form, it is sent correctly but, from the mailing list to which it is sent, it only reaches a few but not all recipients. What could be happening? Thank you!

  20. Gmail isn't sending me the blocked sign-in attempt email – so I get to the point of the "SMTP connect() failed." and am stuck. Any workarounds?

  21. after submitting a form with contact form 7, it is taking a huge time to receive in inbox of gmail. please reply.. thanks

  22. Hi! how are you? im trying to send a test email and said me this:
    SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: (0)SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting

    why is that? thank you!

  23. Hi, Im having some issues with CF7, I am recieving the first email, but the confirmation email do not reach the destination. ¿Could you tell why this happen?

  24. Hi, I use the contact form as a request of service, on the form there are many fields they have to complete and send. that is all working fine. the problem i'm having is, it's not sending all the information that was entered on the form. do you have a video that would help me fix that?

  25. I have many Contact 7 Forms which go to different departments in the company each with their own emails. How does this SMTP plug in for that???

  26. SMTP plugin didn't help me at all. But I figured out there might be an issue with Google reCAPTCHA, so I disabled it. And form WORKS AGAIN!

  27. Hello WPlearningLab Ive followed the steps mentioned in the video and I received the same error you've got "SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting " but when i opened my gmail inbox there is nothing from google which you've received..i did tried the allow less secure option from my google accounts dash board but still getting the same error message iam stuck at this for the past 4 days. please help

  28. my friend i get the message a lot "There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later." then after refreshing the form then sends…it's frustrating because clients won't know that they have to keep refreshing. What could be the cause clearly it is not smtp issue because it eventually then sends. How do i fix this? by the way i am using contact form 7 to forward fields to a custom CRM/Leads system.

  29. Hi There,

    I am encountering this problem while sending a test mail 'SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting'. Could you please suggest me what should I do?

  30. Followed the steps and used one of my gmail account username and password as smtp username and password, But did not receive any email.

    SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Network is unreachable (101)SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting

  31. The SMTP username I use a gmail for my WordPress account. What should I type in: My domain email or gmail?

  32. Tried for hours to no avail. Tried using my gmail email (test email NEVER sends to my gmail account) and my hotmail (test email also never sends) and neither work sadly. I get the following error message:

    SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: (0)SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting

  33. Thanks for all the videos Bjorn.
    I'm getting SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Network is unreachable (101)SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting
    I am using a google account and have have done as advised, although the SSL & TLS are now combined into the same one option to tick, or SMARTTLS).
    After the test email, I do not get a warning message or email on my Gmail email account, have turned on 'allow less secure apps' in googles settings and waited a few days, with the same issue.
    Is there anything else I can try checking?

  34. Hello sir can you please make a playlist of all email related videos ❤️ by the way easy smtp doesn't work for people using shared server because theirs host block outgoing emails completely just make note of that

  35. I am very new at this. Do you send responses from your gmail account or is there a send button on the Mail tab from the Contact form. I don't see one.

  36. Thanks for the video, but this doesn't work for me. I set
    1. "
    From Email Address" – [email protected] (the SMTP for this email is not on Google/Gmail)
    2. "SMTP Host" – smtp.gmail.com
    3. "SMTP Username" – A Gmail account
    4. "SMTP Password" – the password for Gmail account.

    I even tried changing "From Email Address" to the same email account as the "SMTP Username".

    I kept getting the error SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: (0)SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting

    Thank you!

  37. Hi, thanks for the video, but I have an issue with the CONTACT FORM 7 that the email setting of the contact form where it automatically shows"XXXX<[email protected]>", and I can't change it to my own website mail:(

  38. Thank you so much for this video. I followed your instructions, but never received a blocked message from Google after I received a failed test email message. Any thoughts on how to fix this? Thanks so much!

  39. Still i entered the same error which is; SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting

  40. Easy SMTP form would not "Save Changes". The page just kept loading forever after I tried saving. This plugin is not "easy" at all…

  41. can anyone helps me PLEASE
    my contact page has a field of COUNTRY where you can choose where you're from
    but when i send a message from my site , it doesn't show the country because it's made by div, so i don't know what to pick to past in the MAIL tab in contact form 7

    <label for="country">Your Country</label><span style="color: red !important; display: inline; float: none;">*</span>

    <select name="country">

    <option value="">Select Your Country…</option>

    <option value="AF">Afghanistan</option>

    <option value="AL">Albania</option>
    …..

  42. I primarily use Contact Form 7 (usually with the PayPal Stripe Addon) by my beekeeping club. One form is for our membership application. We also use it to collect information from our speakers & vendors when we host a beekeeping "school".
