I managed to solve it by editing my .env file, which I have located here: /var/www/ninja/.env For my SMTP settings, I had entered just my username for MAIL_USERNAME, which does suffice for my ISP but it seems that Invoice Ninja requires the first email address for the username. Instead of: MAIL_USERNAME=john_doe it requires: [email protected] I hope this helps someone. September 15, 2015 at 6:41 pm #918 Hillel CorenKeymaster Thanks for sharing this!

January 16, 2019 at 2:39 pm #18372 Hillel CorenKeymaster Are your mail settings correct in the .env file?
