Fast Secure Contact Form
[Plugin: Fast and Secure Contact Form] mail not sending -- bool(false) (5 posts)

    I'm fairly new to wordpress, and I've never used this plugin before. But, I did look at every relevant thread that I could find relating to this problem.

    I saw a few possible fixes, but they didn't work. I did not try the gmail trick to set up a middle-man forwarder, however, because I don't really want to do that.

    I did try changing the sender from wordpress to php though, I know I did that one. I also tried changing the E-mail From and To to both be from something@MYDOMAIN.com

    Test Message Sent
    
    The result was:
    
    bool(false)
    
    The full debugging output is shown below:

    The problem is PHP either has mail function disabled or improper settings. Make a trouble ticket with your web host.

    Thank you. I sent them a mail, but what specifically will they need to know/what's the problem?

    PHP email does not work. You get error: "Could not instantiate mail function"
