while installing a WordPress 4.6 “phpmailerException” error

while installing a WordPress 4.6 “phpmailerException” error

I never had an error like this when setting up a new install before.

What I tried:
– downloaded and installed successfully WP 4.2. This seem to enforce the idea of a bug in the 4.6 installation
– upgraded 4.2 to 4.6 successfully. Strange. Any help would be appreciated
