How to fix Joomla SMTP errors

SMTP connect() failed

Errors like “Joomla SMTP connect failed” are mostly evoked by the wrong content in the “SMTP Security” field. Find the right way to follow it there. If you are using Gmail, turn on account access here and unblock captcha here.

SMTP authorization errors

The following From address failed: example@example.com : MAIL FROM command failed,553,5.7.1 Sender address rejected: not owned by auth user.

Authorization errors are mostly evoked by the wrong username or password. Note, that for some mail servers (like Yandex) you should type the username, not mail address (example, not exampla@ya.com).

Joomla doesn’t send messages without any errors

It may happen with contact form Contactus. SMTP forbid to add foreign emails to the Sender field, so you should off this options in the “Modules manager”.
