Magento not sending emails to gmail and hotmail| 10 Comments | Magento
A couple of our clients had noticed a problem that just started popping up. It appeared that emails to the free accounts like gmail, aol, yahoo and hotmail were not getting to their customers inbox. It turned out those services were just dropping the emails all together and were not just going to spam folders.
A fix to this problem is actually very simple, or it at least it was for our two clients.
Navigate to System > Configuration > Advanced > System > Mail sending settings > Set return path > YES
That fixed our problem with system emails like registration, order notification and password recovery not getting to the customer.

I’ve tried this and yet no emails going through. Any ideas how to solve this?
Have you cleared your cache? Magento is really stubborn when it comes to caching things. It’s best to remove all files from /var/cache and then test.
Thanks for reply.. I changed
Configuration > Advanced > System > Mail sending settings > Set return path > YES
I just removed all files under var/cache then made a new order with hotmail account and no email came through..
Am i doing anything wrong?
It could be a number of things, but
you might want to try an smtp extension for email as well.
Here is a good one -> http://www.aschroder.com/2010/06/new-smtp-pro-magento-email-extension-released/
Thanks, helped solved my problem. Sometimes it is far simpler than it first seems!
I have tried everything mentioned above but am still “Email to Friend” is not working.
It is not working for Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. but working for ids like [email protected]
It could be multiple issues. Is the server set to only deliver locally? have you tried other domains other than the one you listed? you may want to install an SMTP extension if it’s only delivering locally.
i have tried that and it solved my problem.
thank you 🙂
Emails are deliver locally only. I have tried everything as mentioned above. Installed this extensions too.
But still same problem is occurring. Please assist.
Still getting same issue, in the AWS Server hosting Magento website
