    Hi Guys

    I have installed a few contact forms into my wordpress site and none of them work.

    I dont seem to be getting any of the emails that are sent.

    Does anyone know what could be wrong

    I would appreciate any advice?

    Thanks

    Can you test whether an email is sent when a new user register on your WordPress site?

    May I know if you are currently running the WordPress on your computer (localhost) or it is hosted with a hosting company?

    You might want to try installing a plugin.

    Your host is probably blocking the normal php mail function. Therefore you can to configure such that WordPress sends out e-mail through SMTP.

    You can setup a gmail account and enter the account details into the plugin. It will use gmail as the mail server to send out your emails.
