    I've got the same problem. It was working and now it is not. Seemed to stop working when I tried different contact froms. Tried setting up SMTP plugin which allows me to send a test email but any form I try does not seem to send email out from the server. Tried many different email addresses as well.

    I read that post, and those people aren't getting the emails at all. I get the emails fine so the plugin is working, but the emails I get don't contain the user submitted name or email address anywhere. I was wondering how to fix that. Thanks.

    I have the same issue as kharles. Now I have customers contacting me whom I can't respond to. Any idea what is going on?

    The form doesn't seem to validate itself. I can submit the form and receive no alerts, such as errors saying the form hasn't been completed or that it's been sent or failed.

    I have had the exact same experience; on those rare occasions when the e-mail is actually sent, there is no indication who it is from. I sent an e-mail to the author's webpage, but received no response.

    Does anyone know of a contact form plugin that actually works?

    I have finally found a contact form plugin that actually WORKS! It's called Contact Form with Captcha by Vinaya -- and he has a forum that he actually replies to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    kharles and beckerartography:

    I landed here with the same issue.

    I took a look at the code for the plugin and found the problem. The message only includes the form submitter's information in one place -- the "Reply-To:" field.

    So if you reply to the email, you'll see the submitter's name and email address in the To: field.

    I want the email to have the submitter's information in the From: field (name and email address), and also have the info in the body of the email. Here's what I did:

    1. Open econtact.php, in the easy-contact folder (make a copy first in case something breaks)

    2. Around line 233, look for:

    $headers .= "From: $from_name <$from_email>\r\n";

    and replace with:

    $headers .= "From: $user\r\n";

    That will change the email header information and display the submitter's info in the From: field.

    3. Around line 250, look for:

    $message .= __( 'Website: ', 'easy_contact' ) . strip_tags(trim($_POST['ec_url'])) . "\n\n---\n";

    and insert these 2 lines just before it:

    $message      .=  __( 'Name: ', 'easy_contact' ) . strip_tags(trim($_POST['ec_name'])) . "\n\n";
    $message      .=  __( 'Email: ', 'easy_contact' ) . strip_tags(trim($_POST['ec_email'])) . "\n\n";

    4. Save and replace the original file on the server.

    The email you receive will now look like:

    Here is the message...

    --
    Name: person's name

    Email: person's email

    Website: person's URL

    --
    All the other info (IP, referrer, etc)

    I've tested it out, and this works properly...
