Having trouble with wordpress email on my vps

Aristath may be able to help with this one...

I have a vps with digital ocean and my multisite is not sending emails. Can anyone point me in the right direction to fix this.
I have tried installing, exim4, postfix, sendmail, and nothing works.

Any ideas please, much appreciated,

    Hello there @Wayne,
    I chose to follow a slightly different path on my VPS...
    create an account on http://mandrill.com/ and install this plugin on your site: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wpmandrill/
    Using this will allow your site to use the mailchimp servers to send emails, and it's free for up to 12000 emails/month.
    It's really great and I can't recommend that enough!
    It's also easier on your server since you don't need any packages installed on your server so it's lighter. :slight_smile:

    I hope that helps!

    Cheers,
    Ari.

    Cheers Ari, I may just take your excellent advice as I am not getting anywhere with the postifx, exim4 method.

    But, does this mandrill thing work for networked sites without users having to configure anything?

    Many many thanks, regards, wayne.

    Yes, it works flawlessly! I use it all the time and never had any issues with it...
    Basically it replaces your phpmail and mail server with mailchimp's servers. :slight_smile:

    Cheers,
    Ari.
