Need some help here. I keep getting the following error message “mail server is not responding”. Godaddy can not assist. Godaddy needs to know what server is being used when emailing?
I am using the latest blocs software 5.1.4. I am using a regular gmail and yahoo email for To: and From:
Perhaps GoDaddy only sends emails through SMTP. Try adding your form that way, and everything should work fine. Test it out that way.
I’m having the same error using Gmail:
Try port 587, I think STARTTLS is hardcoded, 465 would require SMTPS in the conf file.
(And the password would have to be an app password, not your regular Google password.)
First I went for 587, with the same error, tried 465 to see if it make the difference… It doesn’t.
I think you want to use a “from email” from the same domain ideally.
Other wise, try the following (solution found online, but I haven’t tried it). As this more related to changes Google made last year.
There’s a bit of contradiction regarding 2-factor authentication as here it says it should be turned off:
When giving this a try I found another bug @norm
Blocs is stripping all spaces from my passwords
Spaces in passwords are heavily debated too
We live in a grey world of opinions
I have never encountered any issues with it until now. From a security point of view it is brilliant.
It’s debated, that’s for sure.
Thats why I fool people with my password being backwards and upside-down
I am not Australian, so no one thinks down under
If I am really being careful, I encrypt my text
I have created Apps Password and used it in my Form setup - still the same error.
Can there be something wrong with PHPMailer?
I have tried multiple SMTP hosts - Active24, SMTP2GO, Microsoft365, all with the same behaviour.
Less Secure App Access is no longer available for Gmail accounts. (it’s available only for G-Suit users I think)
