[resolved] confirmation e-mail doesn't work (11 posts)

    Hi,
    My form does not send confirmation e-mails and I am unsure as to how to change this.

    I have inserted my e-mail address as "exampleemail@exampleemail.com" in the Admin DB form section, under "General Setup."
    After form submission, I receive the entries in my database but get my error message for confirmation delivery:
    "This will be a visible notice if the plugin is not able to send out your confirmation mail."
    Here is my code:
    [db_form]
    [input label="Firstname *" name="Name" required="true"]
    [input label="Lastname" name="E-mail" ]
    [mail label="E-Mail *" value="xx@yy.zz" name="Address" required="true"]
    [submit label="Send!"]
    [/db_form]

    Thanks

    I think you misunderstood what the confirmation mail function does right now.
    It does NOT send out a confirmation mail to the mail submitted in the form.
    It however does send a mail to to the e-mail address you specified under "General Setup", so right now the plugin is trying to send the confirmation mail to "exampleemail@exampleemail.com" which obviously will not work.

    The possibility to send the confirmation mail to the mail address submitted with the form will be included in the next update.
    It will be published either today or tomorrow.

    Regards,
    Valentin

    Sorry if my question was not direct, I think you have misunderstood my problem.

    I am trying to get a confirmation e-mail to the one I have listed under "General Setup" and only listed "exampleemail@exampleemail.com" as an example address. The address I have listed there is a Gmail account : colej4586@gmail.com

    I updated the plugin to 1.1 just to double check and am still getting the "No confirmation mail sent" Error Message

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks,

    Oh I see excuse me.
    Is your server capable of sending mail using PHP?

    Sorry I'm new and I'm not entirely sure. I'm using Bluehost and after Googling, it may look like there are some problems with PHP and Bluehost.

    I tried alternatively to register an e:mail with bluehost: cole@colejohnsontrialsite.com and it still gives me the same error.

    Okay.
    Are you able to upload PHP files to your webspace?
    If so, please upload this Script:
    http://up.valentinalisch.de/mail_debug.zip
    to your server and open it in a webbrowser.

    The output will tell you whether your server has the PHP mail function configured.

    Is the above link a downloadable file?

    It is giving me an error saying your file was not located on the server.

    Could you re-upload it?
    Thanks

    Contacted Bluehost, They said they do support mail using PHP.
    Hope this helps
