SMTP is not working in selfhost

I tried to use SparkPost Eu SMTP, sendinblue SMTP and zoho SMTP, all are not working in my forem. I can't able to verfiy email address or reset password.

I have read some forem smtp related articles, everyone suggesting sendgrid SMTP, but i can't able to create account on sengrid. Is only sendgrid smtp work on forem?

How can i see smtp error log, so that i can see whats going on.

Update:

I even tried google SMTP, it still not working.

Hey @jumpdo - let's try to help you solve this issue! Since you probably don't want to share your settings publicly, you're welcome to email a screenshot of them to hello@forem.com, where I can take another look at them.

As far as I can tell, it uses the SMTP protocol, therefore any service that supports SMTP, forem should be able to support it. I'm also using AWS SES, and it's working perfectly for me. One issue we can definitely improve is the lack of a good error message or test button on the frontend to determine whether the functionality is working or not. Are you seeing any errors on forem log?
