[resolved] Mail Tag in 'To:' Field Not Sending Email (7 posts)

    I am having an issue with CF7 and the form sending a confirmation email to the submitter.

    I am using both Mail & Mail 2 options:
    - For Mail (the first one) I have [your-email] mail tag set in the To: field, and the the person that filled out the form is not receiving emails.

    - For Mail 2, I have a set email (not using a mail tag) and the emails are going through just fine.

    Any Ideas of what is going on? (I've attached screenshots below.

    What is actually in the From field? Is the email address in the same domain as the site?

    It's an email, that is not the same domain as the site:

    Community Support @ XXXX <email@domain.com>

    I will try to remove it and see if that helps.

    The email however (for testing purposes) in the Mail 2 "To:" field is the same domain as the site. But that one is working just fine.

    I removed the email from the 'From:' field (Mail 1), and I'm still not seeing the email come through.

    So --

    I used a different name (same company, email & phone #) and the email came through.

    Is there any setting enabled to 'not send emails' to the same person twice?

    Here is what worked for me:

    in the 'From:' line in Mail (1) I had to:

    - Put quotes (double - hold Shift then ') around the Email Name and then put the email address in between <>


    "Insert any name you like" <support@example.com>

    That's it.
