Error sending test email
SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: (0)SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting
It finally worked after 3 hours!
I used gmail.
What I did:
- Create a "2 authentication" for GMAIL, then Create a "Application Password"
- In GMAIL, find "allow less secure apps". (According to others -- sometimes it takes an hour to take affect)
- In WordPress Admin -- EASY WP SMPT settings I then changed SSL/TLS , to STARTTLS
