  • Hi,
    replace the “mail” function with wp_mail and also you can think at using a smtp auth plugin to make sure it’s not server caused!

    Thank you so much for reply.
    I think it is not server caused, because when I use contact form 7 plugin, it works well..
    So, Do you now think it can be server caused?
    If you think so , I will test that.

    I guess I expressed my thought wrong, I was thinking that it can be caused by the fact that you are sending a not smtp authenticated e-mail. Have you tried to replace the php “mail” function with “wp_mail”?

    Thanks for your response.
    The issue was solved.
