    I have the wp-contact form up ( http://dotnature.com/?page_id=13 ) and it seems to work, yet I get no email with testing it, ive tried several diff email acounts to no avail. What do I need to ask my host to get php mail to work? Its a payed host with full php support. If for some reason they can't do it will wpPHPMailer plgin that uses smtp instead of php work with contact form?

    What do you mean by "different accounts"? It should send email to the admin email account that you specified (if any) when installing WP.

    For WP-ContactForm you put your email address under Options->Contact Form.

    I remember a recent thread regarding Yahoo hosting that said the From address of the email had to be from within your domain (e.g. you@dotnature.com).

    Oh, if it is a Yahoo account, the plugin won't work.

    Seems like you might change From: stuff in wp-contactform.php to get it to work.
