WordPress does not send email

My wordpress does not send email, I also do not get email to change the password, how to proceed?

checkin here could help. https://easyengine.io/tutorials/php/test-email-sending/


Do you know a command to install EE + Postfix automatic?

Check your mailbox spam settings, or display the content in /var/mail/root or /var/mail/www-data

@alexjunio77 first of all, check whether the port 25 is open using command telnet <IP>:25 .
also check if the service is running and binded on port 25 using netstat -ntlp|grep :25

if postfix is not installed you can use ee stack install --postfix

if all the above conditions met and still issue is there, try sending mail from command line using

`mail user@domain.com`

(you may need to install mail utilities using. apt install mailutils)

and check whether the mail is delivered or not. To debug further, check mail queue using mailq and also you may check the logs for better idea. tail -f /var/log/mail.log

When I execute (mailq) I have as a result.

When I execute (tail -f /var/log/mail.log) I have as a result.

No solution so far. Thank you for your help.

@alexjunio77 the mentioned error can be because of many reasons. first you can follow https://easyengine.io/tutorials/mail/postfix-queue/ and clear mails in the queue (if you are okay with clearing) and try sending mail from terminal using above mentioned commands.

Also refer following links for further debugging. https://community.runabove.com/kb/en/instances/how-to-relay-postfix-mails-via-smtp.gmail.com-on-ubuntu-14.04.html


I hope this would help you.
