Does Anyone Use WP Engine For Hosting?

    Wondering if anyone can shed some light. Since coming going to WP Engine for web hosting which was weeks ago, I have had no emails which has really stressed me out. I liked their website security which is why came to them but they do not offer email support which I found out after I signed up with them.

    Therefore I signed up with Hostgator to host my emails. Since then nothing came through except when I asked a few people to send me emails to test it. It worked on those occasions but nothing else comes through when I used to receive a fair amount of emails each week, also the forms on my website do not work. WPEngine advised that they do not allow mail to be sent over ports 25, 465, or 587. Any 3rd party provider that I use must support sending emails over an alternate port (port 2525 is recommended), or via an API

    Then again in some info they hold on their site they recommend using SMPT plugins. They also recommend using Zoho email service or Google apps. I have installed a SMPT plugin, configured it and opened an account with Zoho who confirmed MX records are set correctly but still nothing works. Zoho are very slow in responding which is very stressful. One big massive headache. If anyone can help or knows who can. I would be grateful. Thanking you
