[Resolved] [Plugin: Contact Form 7] EVERY message causes an orange-border spam message

  • Hi, I have read through and see that the orange-bordered “failed to send” message is an Akismet warning.

    The problem is, every single message I or anyone else tries to send generates this message. I am using real email addresses (my own) and contents like “test.” or “this is my message.”

    The email sent fine when I first installed this one week ago. It suddenly stopped working. I have not installed a new plugin I can think of that might conflict.

    Also, Akismet is not showing any spam reports to suggest that it is blocking submissions. My spam count there has been 0 for weeks.

    Is there any other reason that this orange-bordered “Failed to send your message. Please try later or contact administrator by other way” might be triggered? Thanks.

  • Found it. In the message form, I needed to add “akismet:author” in the name field. I only had “akismet:author_email” in the email field.
