I have a clean Magento 2.1.0 installation running on my server, and for some reason the newsletter subscription box keeps displaying the following error: "Something went wrong with the subscription." However, the address is successfully stored in the Database.

Has anyone else had this error recently and how did you fix it? I've tried googling it but not much luck as the Magento GitHub states this is a bug that has been fixed in earlier releases.

It's unable to send the email confirmation for whatever reason. You need to configure your server to allow php to send emails.
