    Please help, I tried many contact forms plugins and non of them works! The contact form page is displayed perfectly with all plugins but when email is sent I don't receive it and confirmation page is not there. The page like restarts itself without sending any e-mail.
    I receive emails from comments, etc... but not from contact page.
    Again, I tried many plugins and each one of them acts in the same way.
    There is something wrong with WP not plugins.
    What should I do to make it work?
    Thanks a lot!

    Probably your server's php mail() function does not work. I had a similar problem once (http://wordpress.designpraxis.at/2007/08/30/my-scrambled-wordpress-blog/#more-153 point 3). Does you "lost Password" request send you an email with a new password?

    If not, you will need a contact form that uses the class phpmailer, which can talk smtp. And contact you webservers administrator for checking whats up with php mail()...

    i have just been through this exercise, so am very sympathetic. Here is one that i found that works as advertised (advice above seems smart too). my blog is hosted at Dreamhost, running on WP version 2.2

    WP Contact Form III is a simple drop in form for users to contact you. It can be implemented on a page or a post. Go to Options -> ContactForm III to configure. Challenge (antispam) mod by Doug Karr. Original script by Ryan Duff By Kristin K. Wangen see http://kzkw.net/

    Shodowdad, I tried contact form III but it gives the same result, it just restarts itself and that is it - no email being sent and no confirmation messages!

    Wpdprx,I tried to request my password and it sent, so I receive emails from WP but not from any contact form!!

    What should I do next???
    Thanks guys for your help!!!
