[Resolved] [Plugin: Contact Form 7] Not Receiving Emails

  • Hi there,
    I am not receiving emails through my contact form. Here is the link to the contact page

    and here is the code.

    <p>Your Name<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>[captchac captcha-918 size:s]
    [captchar captcha-918]</p>
    <p>[submit \"Send\"]</p>

    Does anyone see a problem with this? I can’t for the life of me figure out why it’s doing this. I use google apps to host my email if that helps.

  • Since having upgraded WP to 3.2.1 and Contact Form to 2.4.6, forms do not submit and no emails arrive.

    Three weeks, 32 posts, not one from anyone at Contact Form 7. Yet every time I open the plugin in my admin I get asked to donate to keep the plugin going. Why would I donate to a plugin that does not work and the owners cannot even take the time to comment on a problem after 32 posts on it.

    Does anyone know a WordPress Plugin for forms that works? Just trying to make an order form and a membership form so customers can enter their CC info on my secure server and place an order or join the club.

    I like this plugin but come on man, three weeks, no comment. Bad business and horrible customer service.

    @rhawkes: Beautifully stated!

    @rhawkes: I second that.

    BTW – There are quite a few well-rated forms, and there’s another form, Fast Secure Contact Form, which looks interesting, and even more so, because of Contact Form 7 to Database Extension. The DB ext works with both Contact Form 7 and FSCF, and creates a database, which, I would hope can be imported into the WP database, and there IS and export feature. Forms are there to collect data..

    I need to try out FSCF to see if it works, and I am inclined to try it b/c of the DB extension.


    Hey, what’s up guys… I was seeing all the comments and there are no solution 🙁

    but I got 1 hour to trying to fix it and ………..

    Here is the solution!

    open the file: contact-form-7\includes\classes.php

    go to line 370:
    —– you will find this: $headers = “From: $sender\n”;

    just add a comment to this line.

    —– //$headers = “From: $sender\n”;

    and… vuala, uhull, yeah!, yes! (I guess it will solve the problem for you)

    for me, it fixed.


    Didn’t work for me 🙁

    Didn’t work for me either. I’m about to move on and try another contact form. The info comes to me but with about an hour long delay.

    At least you get THAT Much.. my forms just stopped.. period.. have you found another form plugin?

    This one works so far and it has a captcha field as well. My form still takes a little bit to deliver but it came about 5 or 10 minutes later.

    Fast Secure Contact Form


    Good luck.

    I too, am having the same problem, I don’t get any error messages, when the submit button is clicked, the form just clears and it looks like the page is just refreshed.

    I have this error from Firebug, though:

    [jquery.form] terminating; zero elements found by selector

    Can anyone help me with this error? I don’t think I have any conflicting jQuery scripts, it’s all passed in correctly, all 3 lines of it!?

    I have discovered that my issues stem from mailpress also being Installed. I deactivated it and contact from 7 is ok now. So now I need to fingure Out what to do for a solution to have what I want.

    Thanks for sharing how your issue was solved. Unfortunately for me, I don’t have Mailpress running anyway.

    I think it’s definietly a jQuery issue with me, I’m going to have to get my hands dirty..

    Hmmmm, for some bizarre reason, I came back to look at this again today. I filled in the form with Firebug ready to do some more debugging…..and it WORKED?!

    I hadn’t changed anything… Very strange.

    Folks who are having a problem receiving their email and host with bluehost or other big shared webhosts should check out this solution.


    Your host may be stopping CF7 from sending an email because it doesn’t pass your their spoof filters.
