How to Set Up SMTP Using the WP Mail SMTP Plugin
Have you set up forms on your WordPress site, only to find that the emails aren’t getting delivered? It’s common to see email delivery issues in WordPress, but this can be fixed by using WP Mail SMTP for reliable, authenticated email delivery.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to use WP Mail SMTP to fix email delivery
Why Aren’t Emails Getting Delivered?
There are two main reasons that WordPress emails don’t deliver successfully: server configuration and spam filtering.
WordPress, and WordPress plugins, will by default send email using the PHP mail() function. This is a simple way of sending email, and many WordPress hosting servers are not configured to use this mail() function.
So to resolve this issue make sure three things your webmail is working , Email ids are created and Email ids should be whitelisted ( registered Email Id option in cPanel)

SMTP Settings Overview
SMTP must be able to connect to your email provider, which is why it requires additional setup through a plugin like WP Mail SMTP.
This is the the address to the host’s SMTP server.
The most common ports are 587 and 465, however hosts can and do change these. It’s not uncommon for web hosts to block these ports, so before you begin it’s always good to verify with your web host that the required port is open. If closed, most of the time your hosting provider can open it for you.
SSL and TLS are the most widely used encryption. If your email provider offers both, we recommend TLS. It is worth noting that usually TLS encryption is used with port 587, while SSL is used with port 465.
Modern email providers require authentication. Disabling it may be needed for local development or other edge case scenarios, however most providers need this turned on.
Your username is typically your email address for the email provider; e.g. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Some providers such as AOL require the non-email format; e.g. if your email is email@example.com your username would be john_doe.
This is your email account password. Please note although the password is not viewable in the settings, it is still stored in the database as plain text. This is required since establishing the SMTP connection requires sending the password in plaintext.
