another newbie question :)

I am trying to issue tax receipts using the action "Issue Tax Receipts (separate receipt for each contribution). When I submit this, it generates a pdf of receipts for individuals with no email, but then I get the following 2 error messages:

enter image description here

So the receipt info is not being recorded on the contributions (they still show as no tax receipt issued) and the email receipt is not being sent. I also tried issuing the receipt directly from the contribution itself and got the same mailing error. Not sure what to do at this point.

  • Are any emails working in civi? What do you have at Administer - System Settings - Outbound Email, and if you use the Send Test button there? Or go to Contacts - New Email.

  • Also what do you have for the email settings at the bottom of Administer - CiviContribute - CDN Tax Receipts? Are those valid emails?

  • @Demerit Thanks - it looks like my IP address needs to setup with our API key for outbound mail (the test email also failed with that error message)
