I'm getting the following error when trying to send out mails
Swift_TransportException: Connection to tcp://smtp.mailgun.org:465 Timed Out in /var/www/assessment/vendor/swiftmailer/swiftmailer/lib/classes/Swift/Transport/AbstractSmtpTransport.php:404
I removed everything I could relating to Mailgun and it's still throwing this error, any idea what might be going on here?
This is my .env
MAIL_DRIVER=ses MAIL_HOST=email-smtp.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com MAIL_PORT=587 MAIL_USERNAME=#secretusername# MAIL_PASSWORD=#secretpassword# MAIL_ENCRYPTION=tls
this is my config/mail.php
'driver' => env('MAIL_DRIVER', 'smtp'), 'host' => env('MAIL_HOST'), 'port' => env('MAIL_PORT', 587), 'encryption' => env('MAIL_ENCRYPTION', 'tls'), 'username' => env('MAIL_USERNAME'), 'password' => env('MAIL_PASSWORD'), 'sendmail' => '/usr/sbin/sendmail -bs',
It is because you are using the wrong mail Driver, Here follow this article it's an easy guide on how to configure mailgun in Laravel.
