Firstly apologies for posting here. I’ve tried for a day to resolve the issue myself. Subquently I contacted my shared server website hoster, however they’ve just pointed me here.
If Cloudfare is disabled/paused all appears to be working, both my email client (thunderbird) and the contact form on the website. If I enable Cloudfare I am no longer able to check mail through thunderbird and the contact form times out. I have played around with the orange and grey clouds, however had had no luck where both the CDN (when testing through gtmextrix) and email work togther as designed. Please see a screenshot of the current settings.
Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to get this setup correctly?
thunderbird is failing to connect to the server (even after removing the account and re-adding) plus WP Mail SMTP in wordpress is giving an error “Could not connect to the SMTP host” after updating the SMTP host to the updated sub-domain mail.example.co.uk
Are you saying all my DNS settings are correct? If so ill look at seeing if i can sort the application issues
