I am attempting to get the contact form working on this site, so I can feel comfortable launching it. For some reason when I test the form, it is showing “There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later.”
wordpress email server
I installed WP Mail SMTP plugin and configured it with the mail server settings from my web hosting provider (winhost.com). I ended up looking also at https://blog.winhost.com/how-to-configure-wordpress-to-use-smtp-on-winhost/ which basically had the same instructions, except that it included specific details for winhost. I also realized that my email password was not very secure, so I generated a new one and updated it on both of my wordpress sites.
