Form Not sending email

Form Not sending email

Hi,

I created a simple 'contact us' form. It can be found at contact.php

It appears to send the email but it does not. I reviewed related postings in the forum but couldn't determine if any of those solutions apply to my problem.

I thought I was enabling email sending functionality by going to "Form Function" and filling out the required fields like so;

From: <?php echo ((isset($_POST["Email_Address"]))?$_POST["Email_Address"]:""); ?>
To: contactus@milicainthehat.com

The To: address is functional because I tested it so it's got to be something with the from?

Thanks

some hosts will require that the from address be a valid email for your domain.


you may need to hard code a from address to use a valid address for your domain, you can then set the Return address to use the dynamic address entered into the form.

if you still need assistance send a copy of your page and the webassist/email folder in a zip archive so i can examine the settings used.

After multiple tries I realized that it takes an abnormal amount of time for the forms to be emailed but I do receive them so I guess that must be an ISP issue?

yes, that would be an issue with the smtp server that sends the email to the recipient.
