I just installed the grunion contact form plug in, and then created a contact form on a page.
During the last 30 minutes, I sent myself two test emails, and had a friend send one as well, and I have not received any of them.
I use apple mail, but have checked webmail as well.
I do not have Akismet installed, but I would think this would make it easier to get email, not harder.
I did update the contact form to be sure emails were being directed to the proper email address.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
