    I used the generator to create this form and the form looks beautiful on my page, however, when submitting the form…I get a successfully sent message but I never get the mail with the content. I need to be sure this is working properly before I move on with finishing my site. Can anyone tell me what I have done wrong?

    This is the link to my form

    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 http://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7/faq/

    I don’t know what you mean by “local configuration”. I see nothing in the link you posted that corresponds to my problem.

    RE: I see nothing in the link you posted that corresponds to my problem.

    Sorry for wrong link. Correct link is [ link redacted ]

    RE: I don’t know what you mean by “local configuration”.

    I mean the server where your WordPress.org website is hosted. The server sends your emails from Contact Form 7 via WordPress.

    I have figured out the main issue. It has nothing to do with my computer, local configuration, or my server.

    The problem was the corresponding email tags for the form. Now that I have figured out that part of the problem and fixed it, I have all the fields rendering in the email properly except for the….check boxes, radio buttons, drop down menus, and file upload fields. These special fields are not rendering input information to me in the email sent from the form.

    While I have read and followed the Contact Form 7 instructions religiously for setting up the email portion of the settings…I am still not able to get the information correct in order to render these specific fields properly.

    I am not able to do the correct tags for the EMAIL portion of the set up. From the CONTACT>EDIT menu of the plug-in in WP.

    Before you post the link for the instructions or for troubleshooting…I have them, and I have followed them over and over. I am either missing an essential step or letter or putting an extra space or something…or I am not understanding the instructions properly in regards to these special fields. I am trying, I just am not seeing it.

    By George…after 3 days of reading instructions and trial and error, I do believe I have finally gotten it. Thanks anyway!
