Ok so I’ve got a clean 7.11.18 installed and email works fine.
My upgraded version (that has all my data!) the email stopped working “SMTP Could not Authenticate”
When I change my credentials and “test” it sends. After I save my credentials it no longer works and can’t authenticate.
I tried using my vanilla install (that works) and connected it to the production database to see if email works. It doesn’t. So that narrows it down to the DB and not any of the files or configuration.
I checked in the db and it is saving the encrypted password. I’m totally stumped. Anyone have any other ideas I can try?
I tried that. The values are different between the working DB and the non working DB (in terms of password). I tried changing the DB value in the non-working DB to the working value. That didn’t work either. Failed to authenticate.
