problems sending mail

  1. Hey guys,

    I have my website running on my provider and installed the mail script.
    After running it I see no mail has been send. I used info@mydomain.com so I can receive a mail from the website.
    I still haven't figured out why but after trying my gmail account the script did work!

    dns and mail is hosted elsewhere for mydomain.com.

    So mail does work with every mail address except mydomain.com

    Has this something to do with my USP?

  2. This is going to be some sort of issue with your email provider not accepting the email. You may want to setup your WordPress install to send email via SMTP by using an SMTP plugin. This will require installing the SMTP plugin and then configuring it with the proper SMTP settings from your hosting provider.

    Here is an SMTP plugin you can try:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/

    Once this is installed and configured then it will be used when WordPress, which includes Gravity Forms, sends email. SMTP is a more reliable way to send email than the standard PHP sendmail function.
