[resolved] Contact Form 7 - local server - not receiving emails (3 posts)

    Hey,

    A few days ago I installed the great plugin Contact Form 7. Now I am having trouble receiving emails. It appears to send everything perfectly, no errors, but I'm not receiving any emails.

    I'm working with XAMPP on a Mac (I know it's better to you MAMP), thus I'm using Apache as a local server.

    What's the problem and how can I solve it?

    Have you setup mail server on your local machine?
    If not, that's definitely your problem.

    Okay thanks for the answer...

    I've solved it though with the SMTP plugin and using my Gmail account. When going live I will try it without this plugin. I heard using an email address from the same domain as your website will do the trick.

    For the SMTP plugin check:
