I’ve been looking for ways to send emails via Bluehost SMTP server. I have a pro plan with Bluehost, and for some reason, it was keep giving out an error. The error was Connection could be not established error.
Swift_TransportException in StreamBuffer.php line 269: Connection could not be established with host XXXXXX.com [Connection timed out #110]
The reason was that
MAIL_ENCRYPTION setting was on
tls. The trick was to leave
MAIL_ENCRYPTION field blank.
MAIL_DRIVER=smtp MAIL_HOST=YOUR-DOMAIN (in my case: mail.seyongcho.com) MAIL_PORT=26 MAIL_USERNAME=YOUR-EMAIL-ADDRESS MAIL_PASSWORD=YOUR-EMAIL-PASSWORD MAIL_ENCRYPTION=
