Wordpress Mail() Function Disabled

Hi there,

Just started to set up my wordpress front end user login page that runs through Cloudflares nameservers, however when I’m testing the use of the password reset link email I get the following error:

The email could not be sent.
Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function.

Below is a link to an InMotion user who had the same problem and resolved it in cPanel, do we have an equivalent version on here that I can manually add the email ID for?

Thanks in advance!

If that function is disabled you need to contact your host. That is not Cloudflare related in any way.

If it is not disabled, but it cant be sent because the mail server is not responding you most likely have the DNS record in question set to proxying. Switch that to :grey: then.
