Comment (by ayeshrajans):

 Hi @Synchro, yes the test failures were from the undeclared
 `PHPMailer\PHPMailer\Exception` class. [https://travis-ci.org/Ayesh
 /wordpress-develop/jobs/647421945#L2743 CI log].

 Even before this patch, WordPress [https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-
 includes/pluggable.php#L216 Opts-in to exceptions] (with `new PHPMailer(
 true )`).

 So this patch preserves this behavior, and catches the new
 `PHPMailer\PHPMailer\Exception`. I think this is safer because because we
 get the strict validation from PHPMailer, and any unhandled exceptions
 from WordPress side will rightfully bubble up.
