    Hi Meg,
    I’m using WordPress 3.5.1. on Local Host Windows 7 with Outlook computer for development & testing,

    I am currently trying your nice-looking contact form 4.1.0 with Local Business theme.

    Out of the box, after clicking Send I’m getting:
    Waiting for Local Host (progress tracker bottom left)

    Then: Sorry, there has been a problem and your message was not sent.

    Any ideas

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    As per this support thread:

    Unable To Send Messages

    It looks as if there is a more general problem with the email server on your computer. You might be able to send an email using outlook but it is an emailing client so can't be used by wordpress.

    I use an smtp plugin called wp-mail-smtp which allows me to use an external smtp server for my email as my host provider does not provide an email server. You could set it up with the smtp credentials you use to send email through outlook.

    I hope this helps a bit, do let me know how you get on.
