Contact Form 7
[resolved] WordPress Email Yahoo Small Business (7 posts)

    I am running WordPress using Yahoo Small Business as my web host.
    I have setup installed the Contact Form plugin but am having problems sending email.

    I have a simple form with 3 fields.
    - Name
    - Email
    - Message

    If I enter an email address from my domain in the email field the email sends fine. If I use any other email address I get an error and no email. Is there something else I need to do for this to work?

    What have you set as the "From" mail address?

    I have the following set in the Contact Form "From" field

    [your-name] <[your-email]>

    Try changing it to <your-address@your-domain>.

    Thanks. Got it working after making this change.
    Is it possible to have the users email be used as the From address?

    I don't know. You should ask Yahoo Small Business the question.

    I've got the site hosted at bluehost, however, our email is still with Yahoo. I've changed the From email address to several addresses on our domain. Still not working... So, I changed the To email address to another personal email not on yahoo, and it worked fine?!?!? any suggestions?
