The following errors have occurred:
The email did not send successfully.
The WordPress wp_mail function is used for sending mails but does not give any useful information when an email fails to send.
It is possible the “to” address ( or “from” address ( is invalid.

The test message was not sent

Hi there,

Do standard WP emails send from your site, for example Password Resets or WP Registration emails?

Are you using any SMTP plugins to send emails from your site?

Event Espresso passes the email to wp_mail() to send the emails but that doesn’t return any useful info when it fails to know what the problem is.

If you add this snippet to your site:

You can add it to a custom functions plugin:

That should add any errors thrown when sending the email to the notice you posted above, so add that code and test another email.

Does it show any additional details?
