Well if I go into admin and check the configuration as you suggested, Stores -> Configuration -> Advanced -> System -> Mail Sending Settings
I find just the option below:
Mail Sending Settings
Use system value
So I can add my incoming mailer server for host field and add default port 25.
Is that all I need to do and then I can use an email address associated with the host that I am using?
Because I still get the error:
We can't process your request right now. Sorry, that's all we know.
I would just like to know if I can use the latest version of Magento on a Bitnami AWS AMI to use the contact form and automatic emails that get sent out for invoicing.
So I did the admin part, not working.
I checked the plugin and most of the comments state not working correctly, or working for contact form but not the automatic invoices etc.
Is there a plugin that comes bundled with the AMI for Gmail, I saw something about that, if I can't use the AWS SES service I am prepared to use anything else just to get it working please?
