Contact form going to spam folder

Contact form going to spam folder

Hi there,

I removed all the validation and captcha from my form.. but must have removed something I shouldn't. The form works good.. but it always goes into my spam folder with unknown as the sender. Can someone please tell me how to fix this? It took me so long to get my form right, I don't want to have to redo the whole thing!

Thank You =)

Did you remove the email address form element? This is used by the contact form as the from address, an email with no from address will be treated as spam.


you could edit the WA_Universal_Email/WAUE_contact_1.php file, and change:

php:
$MailFrom        = "".((isset($_POST["Email_address"]))?$_POST["Email_address"]:"")  ."";




to:

php:
$MailFrom        = "your@emailaddress.com";



to hard code the from address.

in the WA_Globals.php file, change the following:

php:
$WAGLOBAL_Contact_Email_Subject = "Online Contact Form Response" ;

PHP contact form mail goin in spam box

Hey Jason,

I am also facing the same problem ie. my php enquiry form is going in my spam box.

You have mentioned that following code should be used :

$MailFrom = "your@emailaddress.com";

I am using php for the first time so in the above mail id part,do i have to enter my email id.

And i have to put a cc mail id also so what be done for that?

Awaiting your reply asap.

yes, in the WA_Universal_Email/WAUE_contact_1.php file, you would need to change:

php:
$MailFrom        = "".((isset($_POST["Email_address"]))?$_POST["Email_address"]:"")  ."";


to:

php:
$MailFrom        = "your@emailaddress.com";




where "your@emailaddress.com" is your email address.

to add a cc address, edit the WA_Globals/WAGlobal.php file, and add the CC Address to the "$WAGLOBAL_Contact_Email_CC" setting:

php:
$WAGLOBAL_Contact_Email_CC = "ccAddress@domain.com" ;
