Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Stop email getting sent to server user

  • Sam Bull


    Since moving a client’s site to my hosting, I keep getting their auto-response emails from contact form 7 being sent to the server user (i.e. www-data@<server-name>). I am now getting spammed by these auto-responses.

    Why is this happening, and how do I stop it?
