SpeakUp! Email Petitions
[resolved] Not sending emails (6 posts)

    I cannot get "SpeakUp! Email Petitions" plugin to send emails.

    It sends the user the confirmation email and the collecting names for the petition works fine but it does not send to the "Target Email".

    Am I understanding the purpose of this plugin?

    I am collecting a petition of names and the "Target Email" is the government official (or who ever) which everybody is sending this email to. Is it suppose to send an email to "Target Email" everytime someone signs the petition?

    If you have the "Confirm signatures" option turned on then the petition message will be sent to the Target Email address only after the signature has been confirmed.

    If you do not have "Confirm signatures" turned on, then the petition message will be sent to the Target Email immediately after the signature is submitted.

    I've tried both unconfirmed and confirmed. when I first installed it confirmation emails were getting sent and recieved but now its stop sending confirmation emails as well.

    I've tried changing the target email address thinking it might be a spam issue with yahoo not letting them thru. they are not going to my spam folder.

    When some of these online mail hosts reject mail they don't just place it in the spam folder, they fail to acknowledge receipt at all. I wrote a FAQ about this. It's the third one on the list here:

    You should try installing the WP Mail SMTP plugin.

    I read the FAQ but I didnt think php mail() function was the problem because it was sending confirmation emails in the beginning. But either way after installing WP Mail SMTP plugin


    and setting it up with gmail it works now.

    Thanks for the reply.

    After many months using Speakup without problems (except a minor issue Kregg quickly fixed), it stopped sending emails to targets. I'm one of the targets and I'm not receiving emails, tho I otherwise get them fine. I recently created a new petition and it's also not sending emails. I don't use confirmations. I hope this is something simple I'm overlooking because I don't have a clue about code. Here's the petition page, but let me know if something else is needed. Thank you in advance. http://sqauch.org/wp-admin/admin.php?page=dk_speakup
