Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » [Plugin: Contact Form 7] wheel spins for 2 minutes, mail received ok

  • I use WP 3.4.1 and CF7 v 3.2.1. I have no caching plugin installed.
    I use the latest versions of Google Chrome and Firefox.

    After having filled out the form, the spinning arrow starts and it doesn’t stop until after (almost exactly) 2 minutes.


    • Mail 1 is received after about 1 minute while the arrow keeps spinning
    • Mail 2 is received directly after the spinning arrow stops after almost exactly 2 minutes

    I’ve tried the following:

    • Switched to Twenty eleven default theme and disabled all plugins (but CF7).
    • Disabled CF7’s js by inserting this into ‘ into ‘wp-config.php’
      define ('WPCF7_LOAD_JS', false);
    • inserted <p style="visibility:hidden;">[file upload]</p> into the form.
    • Nothing of the above has resolved the problem.

    Mail 1 and 2 are sent but it takes (almost) forever and I don’t want users to worry about if the mail goes through and the wheel that keeps spinning

    Anyone with a suggestion on how to deal with this?

    Check your mail server’s status. Consult the server admin or support person of the host if you are not familiar with that.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    We use Google Apps/Gmail and have had no trouble until recently with sending mail through CF7. We have not experienced any other mail related delays recently in their service.

    Just to possibly rule out any Google Apps/Gmail mail problems, I installed Contact Form 7 on a WP site that was not previously using it.

    I didn’t disable any plugins/themes or applied any of the ‘hacks’ described above.

    I created a form and submitted some data.

    The wheel kept spinning for a few seconds (maybe 3 or so) and the “OK” msg was displayed. Both mails were instantly received to two different Google accounts.

    Anyone with similar problems or that could hint in which direction I should look to solve the problem described in my first post?
