Could the expiration of my SSL certificate have anything to do with my website being unable to send out e-mails anymore?

    It's possible that the sendmail function could be changed, or the default mail() parameters.  I would highly recommend the use of the phpmailer classes, which enable you to have total control over how your mail is being handled.

    Hope this helps.

    The Default mail client doesent make use of Secure SMTP ( or indeed any SMTP of its own ) so the certificate expiring would not look at or need your certificate to send. I would suggest you write a

    <?php phpinfo() ?> script and have a look at the mail section to find out what mail server you are using and then find out why that is failing to send mail.
