SMTP Common Troubleshooting

SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Connection timed out (110)

That means, your server can’t connect with the SMTP host. 

  • Check the port you are trying to connect with is not blocked by the Firewall.
  • Make sure the host is reachable from your server IP.
  • Finally, make sure the Mail is enabled in your Server or is not blocked by server security settings.
  • If you are using Gmail SMTP, you must first allow application access to your GMAIL address.
