I am making a small site just for experience purposes, and am struggling to get a contact form working. The site is hosted on Dreamhost, the domain is on Hover and I am trying to send the email from my Wordpress site with my gmail email address. I am currently using contact form 7, which which is known to have problems on Dreamhost but whenever I search of other forms to use, it always comes back to CF7.
I have been researching this for days, and every solution for this problem hasn't worked. I am currently (unsuccessfully) configuring an SMTP plugin, which is what I am seeing everywhere on the internet, but configuration I have tried with it has failed. I keep getting a "The following recipients failed" error in the debut output of WP SMTP. Any help would be appreciated at this point.
