Contact Form 7 reCAPTCHA Extension
WP 3.3.2 update breaks contact form 7 (7 posts)

    Sends message to the person who filled out the form (the [your-email] address) but does NOT send a copy of the message to the address on file for the owner of the domain name (entered manually in the first portion.) I've checked the spam folders etc and also checked out the email address to another address I use just in case - each time the "copy" goes to the sender but no message makes it to the site owner.

    I have not yet checked mail logs but the plugin worked with 3.3.1 and ceased working when upgrading to 3.3.2. No other changes were made.

    Hi, i couldn't believe this was the only post i found about this, as i've had the same problem.

    I took a look at what else changed for me, and recalled that i also updated my jetpack plugin at the same time, and it now has a built in form facility, and that this uses the same shortcode as contact form 7.

    So, i disabled jetpack and hey presto contact form works again!

    when i get time i'll try and find a workaround, or maybe someone will update contact form or jetpack to work together.

    hope that helps?

    I already had jetpack disabled so I need to go through some more and see what else. Luckily I updated a site that I could pull the contact form from first before some that I can't.

    I disabled everything except:
    contact form 7
    embedly
    feedburner feedsmith
    google xml sitemaps
    wordpress database backup
    WP-Table reloaded

    and STILL not getting the emails as described above.

    Now I'm UTTERLY confused.

    I decided to try again on another site I was planning on taking offline and I ran into the same problem. Then I disabled ALL of the plugins and added them back in one by one testing the form each time with incremental subject lines so I was certain I was getting each message.

    I reenabled every single plugin I had previously had active and the contact form continued to send to me.

    So I went back to the other site and started to try the same thing. Didn't work. Then I decided maybe there was some sort of typo in the email address I wasn't seeing so I changed what email address it went to. It went fine. Switched back to the correct email address and sent. Nothing. Checked the spam folder. Nothing. Checked the trash. Nothing.

    a) I have no idea why deactivating the plugins on one site and then reactivating everything one by one seemed to work.
    b) I still don't know why, even with nothing else turned on on another site I can't get it to send to the correct email address. Other things are coming in fine to that email account so it's not a problem with that part either.

    Totally baffled!

    FINALLY found the solution to my problem and posted it over on a thread with a lot of other possible solutions:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-contact-form-7-not-receiving-emails-2/page/3?replies=82#post-2858665

    SO obscure and also why I could get it to work with some accounts (or what I thought for a brief bit was site specific vs email specific) but not the one I was trying to get it to work with!
