Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm also on a vps server no issue on the servers apparently after speaking to live support, is anyone using bluehost and managed to get the email alerts to work effectively ?
Do you mean to say that not email is getting triggered fro your application?
Do you have email service enabled on your server? Please create a custom php email script and try to run it in your application root. So that you can verify that email service is working.
Did you see any error messages in exception.log and system.log fines under var/log directory?
I believe so. I think I do its a vps hosting package with bluehost so yes it should be enabled, one thing do I have to SMTP for emails to be generated in magento ? ive just tried to set up gmail with SMTP, the queue log is now saying 2016-10-05T16:37:01+00:00 ERR (3):
