Ok, thanks for the reply.
I have to say, you're kinda talking over my head with the tech-stuff.
I have my website and moodle course on a 3rd party webhost
, so is this something they should look into and address?
Technically speaking, I'm the Admin, but "tech"-nically, I don't know much about changing server settings. If I were to tackle this myself, would these settings be found in my moodle installation or in my website's cPanel backend?
I will probably submit a "trouble ticket" with my webhost, but if it's not too complicated, maybe I can handle it.
I did go ahead and enable "verbose debugging" when attempting to send SMTP mail. Here's the "verbose" error log:
SMTP -> ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Connection timed out (110)
ERROR: SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host.
Is there another method for handling email-based student self-registrations until I get this SMTP issue sorted?
