[Plugin: Contact Form 7] Form does not send msgs (6 posts)

    Hi

    I used to use this example syntax at my contact form definitions:

    <p>Your name (required)<br />
        [text* text-513 akismet:author] </p>
    
    <p>Your e-mail (required)<br />
        [email* email-423 akismet:author_email] </p>

    Once I uprated the plugin and WP to the newest versions, the contact form 7 plugin refuses to send messages. I get an error msg once I try to send any emails with it. It says the email could not be send and I should re-check the form. And the form in filled in correctly...

    Once I change the code to:

    <p>Your name (required)<br />
        [text* text-513] </p>
    
    <p>Your e-mail (required)<br />
        [email* email-423] </p>

    it starts to work. The Akismet plugin works ok (the newest version too).

    Any solutions?

    You are probably seeing a response message with ORANGE border, right? It means that Akismet said that "This sender must be a spammer!". Akismet does. Contact Form 7 just pass you the message.

    Yes the orange one., but the thing is that it happens whatever e-mail address I provide or friends of mine........ So that's not the reason I guess....

    As far as I know, Akismet checks not only email address. It also checks your PC's IP address and the server environment your WordPress works on.

    How about trying from another PC?

    I tried, also asked several dozen of people to check this out, and it was just the same :(

    well I'm using Contact 7 and never had a problem with it :) make sure your settings are correct... try to delete and install again, it has a new update also, try the new one, maybe it helps...
