I recently updated PHPList to 3.3.7. (I think this was a mistake) For some reason, now campaigns and test emails refuse to send (all was working before the update). This is the error message I get from PHPList:
Connection: opening to mail.[servenamegoeshere].com:587, timeout=40, options=array ()
Connection: Failed to connect to server. Error number 2. "Error notice: stream_socket_client(): unable to connect to mail.[servenamegoeshere].com:587 (Connection refused)
SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Connection refused (111)
SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting
In looking thru the wiki and searching the forum here, I’m finding nothing that helps me solve the issue. I’m looking thru the server connection logs and it shows the user is connecting and then going idle, after it goes idle it disconnects from the server. I’m wondering if anyone has some suggestions as to why I’m getting Error number 2 and what Connection refused (111) is? Specifically. I’ve tried a couple of different users on the server and get the same result.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
