Emails not being received is a concern
By ,

Apparently it works for some, but many seem to see the 'success' notification of sending the email and then not receive it.
This is simply nowhere near reliable enough if you want to guarantee receiving emails or if your business replies on it. I've been troubleshooting this & trying many solutions from others in a similar position for weeks to no avail.
Today I finally got it working - but I have no faith in it now and will be monitoring it closely - I don't want my client to lose business due to plugin instability.

Impossible to update
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin seems to be impossible to update. I have been using it for years and it initially very easy to install and use. However I have NEVER been able to update the app through automated methods. Proceed with caution.

I have raised my review to 3 stars, because I do like the Akismet integration.

Easy to use, but not much you can do
By , for WP 4.1

If you're looking for something simple & straight to the point, then this is the plugin for you.

However, there isn't much you can do if you're not aware of style.css. I wanted to have some fields side-by-side & I had trouble organizing it as such, as well as changing the size of the fields.

Decided to switch over to another plugin and the other one works wonders.

error while sending a mail
By , for WP 4.0

I SEE A RESPONSE MESSAGE “YOUR MESSAGE WAS SENT SUCCESSFULLY” WITH GREEN BORDER, BUT I NEVER RECEIVE A MAIL FOR THAT.

request you to solve this as early as possible.

Overrated
By , for WP 4.0

It's great if you're just starting out but there are better, cleaner, and more capable contact form plugins.

Great plugin!
By , for WP 3.8.1

This a nice and easy plugin!

Maybe nice to add:
an if statement for displaying different texts in a mailing when selecting different options in the contact form.

Attachments Fail
By , for WP 3.7.1

I never see the attachments when they're sent via email. I see a lot of people having this problem, with not much help from the writer of the plugin.

Good but
By , for WP 3.6.1

not as customizable as Fast Secure contact form

Basic Plugin For Basic Needs
By , for WP 3.6

Honestly? This is a fine plugin if you want something extremely basic. What I want is nothing too complicated but this plugin doesn't even have built-in onfocus functionality or even a wide range of fields. Also, why can't I give a specific field an id/class?

Why 3 stars?
By , for WP 3.5.1

When it work's its great couldn't ask for anything better but when it doesn't its a pain in the ass trying to fix and can cause a lot of issues to your business if you don't spot the issue right away.
