    How do I change the email to which the forms are sent? I tried just putting another address into the "To:"-field under "Mail", when Im inside the form-editor. But it does seem to work.

    It still sends to an old emailadress I had, when I installed it for the first time. I don't see anywhere else to change it.. Am I blind? :)

    Hi Buzztone

    Like I said, I have already tried entering the email-adress ind the "to:" field. And the issue is not, that no mails are sent, but that they are sent to an old e-mail-adress. Probably the first one I linked to CF7..

    See screenshots here:

    You are entering the info correctly. Your host probably has some restriction on where emails can be sent to from WordPress. CF7 is not using "an old e-mail-adress".

    Some hosts have very specific requirements which can effect significantly the To & From Email Addresses you can use with CF7.

    For example the from and to, on a DreamHost server, have to be the same domain as what you're hosted on - see http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/2012/04/04/improvements-to-outgoing-spam-prevention-policy/.

    Otherwise see Contact Form 7 Email Issues. Most people that work through this information appear to be able to resolve their email sending & receiving issues.
