Please help in this regard

We are not using SMTP

Please, check your logs and post here if you find something relevant.

Do you mean your ojs configuration is set to “smtp=Off”?
How do you post your mails without an smtp?

If you are mailing with gmail, they recently changed their policy.


There is no problem with SMTP configuration. Some time ago the email service was running fine, but it suddenly stopped working.

In logs no such point is observed

If you are not using SMTP, you are using PHP Mail.
Contact your server administrator.
They may have turned off the phpmail service for security and spam reasons.

You can also consider using SMTP mail.

If you were using SMTP mail but it is not working now, SSL may be the reason.

Is your SSL certificate Let’s Encrypt?
