Email Error: SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host.
Hello. I'm currently upgrading my site to v3.1.9b. I've followed the upgrade instructions closely, and I'm nearly there... I've got v3.1.9b working in a test area, using a test database which is a copy of my regular database. Everything looks ok, but the email functionality does not work. Examples:
1. When I try to make an order on the new shop, I can pay for the item, but then it fails when trying to email a confirmation. I get a simple white page with the message: Email Error: SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host. However, the order is actually placed in the system, and payment is processed.
2. When trying to email a customer using the "Send email" screen in the admin area, I get the same error (Email Error: SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host.) when I click on the send button.
3. When trying to send an email to Customer Services as a user from the site, I click on send, but DO NOT get an error message - the site simply informs me that my message has been sent. The email does not, however, arrive.
I have the Email Archive Manager installed, and that logs that the emails have been sent (despite not actually sending).
I have also tested sending emails from my regular pre-upgrade version of the shop (v 1.3.8), and that all works fine. When I compare the options in the Admin > Confirguation > Email Options screen, there are no differences between the 2.
Finally, I have also compared the files in my 2 versions of the site, and can't see any missing files. I may of course have missed a line of code when copying my code changes to the new version, but it's rather like trying to find a needle in a haystack!
Is anyone please able to help? I've been looking at this all day, and can't work out what's wrong!
