Full Version: Failed to start TLS encryption

I use Gmail's SMTP for forum emails, and when I updated MyBB to 1.8.14 it stopped working. I haven't changed any settings or anything since I updated MyBB. 

Whenever an email is sent it fails with the message "Failed to start TLS encryption" and code "220". I've searched all over Google and found no solution.

Thanks for reading!
Hi there,

This thread may help you:
Thank you! I thought I already read and tried that thread, but I guess I didn't completely.

The problem was the and openssl.cafile were commented in php.ini and needed to specify a cacert.pem. For some reason this just broke, but thankfully it's fixed!
I am glad you got to resolve this dilemma. Smile
