    Hi I am using Ryan's Contact form in a page. When I submit the form, I recieve a success msg. Then when I check email, I don't get any email in the address I specified in the option.

    Any help?

    It should be using the smtp you provided in your admin. Have you tested it to see if it's working?

    I also get new user registration email. I have no clue what is going on with the form!

    Try another contact form plugin and see if same problem. There are several if you search the codex.
    I use WP-Contact Form without problems using smtp and php mail on differing sites.

    i tried the one u mentioned first, it did not send email. Then I switched to contact form II plugin, it's not sending email either.

    just found that user comment is not going to my email either. is the whole mail system collapsed in my blow?

    Have you tried the php mail option? On some hosts it works better. That or contact your host to be sure what your smtp address is.

    Man, I know how you feel. I tried them all too, but got nowhere. WordPress has a contact form, but it was not working when I installed it.

    I finally tried PXS Mail and it works fine.

    It has only one file and is quite simple. See if it works for you.

    nothing works man! I am pulling my hear!! Here're the list of things I tried,

    1. installed wp-contactform- result did not work
    2. installed wpPHPmail plugin
    3. tried again, no result.
    4. now just tried pxsmail, no luck either.

    is there anyone out there who can lead me to the right direction?

    leMaxin, thanks for your help! I don't think that's gonna work. I don't know, why's not a single one out there who can point me to the right direction. gosh! giving me links of so many versions of forms is not helping, as you can see I have already tried 3 different versions.

    This is something to do with mail sending from wordpress. can any one help?

    see, I have tried 3 different versions of form. each one of them works (by saying that I mean, there's not a single error I get), except that I don't get any email.

    And what happened when you contacted your host? WP just uses what's in PHP's php.ini file for outbound mail.

    Mhabib, have you TRIED installing the Dagon design form? I also went through 4 or 5 plugins, they all take a little teaking for your server. Stop being stubborn and try the plugin I recommended. I offer to help you get it to work.

    Hi HandySolo,
    Thanks for your reply. My host is Yahoo. I contacted them, they said smtp/pop3 on my account is working. And that's prolly true coz I get email from wordpress both using default mail handler or wpPHPmailer (i mean smtp) when I register a new user from user admin page. Although, it did not send email to the address I provided during user registration.

    Any clue?

    I am sorry LeMaxim. I am not becoming stubborn. See I am trying this simple (I thought) thing for days now. and it does not work! I am sorry again. I will try yours once I figure why I don't get email for comments and why new user doesn't get email?

    Hi LeMaxim, I tried yours, and it's saying this msg when I hit send mail,

    "Error!

    No connection to the mailserver. Please try again later."

    Maybe I'm wrong.. I dunno, where's whooami when ya need her lmao!! =P I *hope* this is what you're trying to figure out.. =P

    *ADDED* If you want, and can use a gmail setup for the blog, just use this and use your gmail user and pass and you're good to go!! The port number is already set for the: pop.gmail.com setting. This is right from my blog..

    Mail server: pop.gmail.com Port:995

    Login name: Your's of course
    Password: Your's of course

    Then hit the Update Options button.

    That should work for you too. =)
    ----------------------------------------------

    Are you sure your smtp/pop3 addresses are correct and the user and password for it is correct? Just was curious..

    (This is within the blog) I'm not sure if that's what you're really refering to though.. I'm at a lost to Yahoo at the moment sigh.

    Options => Writing

    Example only, possibly not real:

    Mail server: pop.yahoo.com Port:995 <-whatever number yahoo uses.

    Login name: Your's of course
    Password: Your's of course

    Then hit the Update Options button.

    It took me a little while to figure it all out..when I first started using WordPress sigh.. =/

    spencerp

    I'm not positive, but I use Gmail for my blog, and just use the pop.gmail.com and it sends and so forth, without even worrying about the smtp settings in the blog.. so maybe just try the "pop3" settings once and make sure everything on yahoo.com's email side is correct too..

    ok. here's the thing guys. PLEASE READ it, when new user register I get an email with same smtp/pop3 user/pwd/config. but the user themselves do not get any email. Do u think it is related to form problem?
