wp_mail() calls mail() which depends on you PHP environment.

Please try a simple PHP script with only one var_dump(mail()); call to debug it.

Thank you for the bug report, @JulesPryla!

What version of PHP are you using? There seems to be a related issue with PHP 7.3 (#46217), but that affects WordPress 5.0, too.

Are you able to reproduce the issue with no plugins active on your site?
