Support » Plugin: wpMandrill » Contact Form 7 Submit Failure

  • Resolved kamegami


    I am attempting to use wpMandrill to send emails from my site as my host has highly restrictive email policies that cause me to lose mails occasionally.

    I configured everything correctly, I am able to send a test email. I changed my Contact Form 7 form so the From: field is from my Mandrill registered account and added the Reply-To: header. Despite this, Contact Form 7 will still report a Submit as failing. I receive the contact form email without issue, but I can’t have the form reporting Failure to Send.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    First of all, make sure the message is being sent though Mandrill (check the headers of the email you’re receiving).

    If it is actually being sent thought it, I’d say there’s something wrong with the way Contact Form 7 is handling the response… I doubt this is the case because CF7 is compatible with wpMandrill.

    If it is being sent through your web server, take a look at your wp log file. There might be some hints of what’s happening.

    I ran into the same problem as the original poster: e-mails come through (with the Mandrill headers), but the CF7 validation mistakenly reports a failure. I use Plugin Organizer to selectively disable plugins by page; disabling Mandrill on the pages with CF7 forms eliminated the issue, but that won’t help with people who are using Mandrill for form submission delivery.

    I figured out my issue. I was using a dropdown to select the email to send to. In the list I was using the emails were in the form “name <email>” which worked just fine before. I tried switching to pipe form “name|email” and everything worked.
