    Not sure what is going on but here is my set up and I have only started having problems fairly recently.

    WordPress Version 5.7
    WP-Optimize Version 3.1.8
    Contact form 7 Version 5.4
    NinjaFirewall (WP Edition) Version 4.3.2

    What seems to happen is whenever there is an update of Ninja rules my contact forms stop sending emails. This goes away after I use WP-Optimize to clear the cache. Unless I clear the cache emails get blocked.

    In Ninja (great plugin by the way), I have the options off that you recommend

    Through the WordPress REST API *. is OFF
    WordPress REST API Block any access to the API *
    XML-RPC API Block any access to the API * is OFF
    Block system.multicall method *

    I am fairly competent and I have not been able to track the problem down. I am going to disable WP-optimize and wait for the next rules update and see what happens. Not sure if you can any other advice or thoughts why it is doing this.

    Did you check the firewall log if there was anything related to this issue?
    You can also enable WP_DEBUG in WordPress and check the PHP error log for any notice, warning or error.

    Nothing in the firewall log. Nothing showed in WP_DEBUG either. I will turn that on if the problem returns. I had no problems yesterday. I have just included a new SMTP plugin which should give better reliability and excluded pages with contact forms on them from being cached. I will wait for the next ninja rules update and test again.

    You may want to downgrade to Contactform 7 5.3.2 as there is a bug in 5.4 (check the browserconsole for errors). This happens due to some caching related issues (don’t combine js files).

    You can use https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-rollback/ to downgrade to the right version.

    Thanks – I did that and all works. However, I ended up deactivating wp-optimize and implemented a fantastic solution by wp cloudflare super cache – all is working.
