Wordpress email works in some cases

I have a site that the comment notifications do not work. However the password reset email DOES work.

A couple of things I’ve noticed.

  1. The site is a subdomain (I have another site in a top level domain that the notifications do work.

  2. I have tried SMTP Mailer and WP-smtp. I had trouble getting the test emails to work, but even after I did, the notification emails still do NOT work.

  3. I have tried disabling all plugins and notification emails still do not work, either with the default configuration, or with either of the SMTP plugins.

Is there a way I can see logs of what’s going on?


Are you using Dreamhost to host the email server? If so they’ve been having issues. http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/2016/07/26/emergency-maintenance-on-mail-filers-july-26-430-pm-pst/
