I have WordPress installed on a Godaddy Windows hosted server. Email is not working to retrieve passwords. I get this error:
The e-mail could not be sent.
Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function…
Fix: Installed the WP-Mail-SMTP plugin. Set up my email address in the From, and set the outgoing server to relay-hosting.secureserver.net with no authentication.
And it worked.
I am also using the CForms plugin. Under Global settings, I had to enter relay-hosting.secureserver.net to get it to email form submissions properly.
Update: Here are the settings I am using for the WP-Mail-SMTP plugin:
From Email: (I’m using a non-Gmail email address. See why here.)
From Name: (my name)
Mailer: “Send all WordPress emails via SMTP.” is checked
SMTP Host: relay-hosting.secureserver.net
SMTP Port: (blank)
Encryption: No encryption
Authentication: No authentication
Update 2009-10-25: If you are using a virtual dedicated server at Godaddy you will need to use k2smtpout.secureserver.net instead for the SMTP host. Thanks to @koset for finding the info here: http://help.godaddy.com/topic/91/article/150
