Message fails to send. (4 posts)

    When I fill out the contact form and submit it, it tells me the message failed to send. I am not sure why. Everything seems to be filled out correctly, but it gives me this message:

    Failed to send your message. Please try later or contact the administrator by another method.

    I have this form on the contact page as well as the footer in a widget. Any ideas?

    Happened to most of my sites.

    When you go to edit the form I found that the Message Body and the Mail settings have all been cleared (empty fileds). I had to re-enter them all in again to get it working.

    This is what I see what I go to edit the form:

    <p>Your Name (required)<br />
        [text* your-name] </p>
    <p>Your Email (required)<br />
        [email* your-email] </p>
    <p>Subject<br />
        [text your-subject] </p>
    <p>Your Message<br />
        [textarea your-message] </p>
    <p>[submit "Send"]</p>

    Are you talking about something else? If so, where? I need a bit of step by step if you could.

    Though the plugin successfully sends millions of emails every day, there are a host of issues that can delay or stop emails on both the sending and receiving ends of a typical email. It depends entirely on your local configuration.

    You will need to investigate this issue for your particular local configuration. See Contact Form 7 Email Issues
