data bridge not sending emails

I can't send emails from form builder, using data bridge. I had no problems with universal email.

Can you provide more details on how you are setting the emails up please?

Who is your host? the settings to use for sending emails are dependent on your host.

a copy of your form page and the webassist/email folder would be helpful.

also make sure you are using the most recent version of Data Bridge, version 1.1.3. If you have a previous version installed, make sure to uninstall it from the extension manager before installing the newer one.

according to the fasthosts support page:
?article_id=65


you will need to pass the from address as an extra peramiter.

the from address you entered:
noreply@rendcem.co.uk

is this a valid email address for your domain?


what about the to address:
mai@rendcem.co.uk

is this a valid address?

in the universal email behavior, click the Envelope icon to go to the email server settings, make sure to check the option to include the from address as an extra parameter.

you will also need to add the ini_set code at line one of the page:

php:
<?php ini_set("sendmail_from""noreply@rendcem.co.uk"); ?>




i notice your page name contains a space, page names should not contain spaces, try renaming the page:
"contact rendcem.php"

to:
"contact_rendcem.php"


and change the form tag:

php:
<form class="Sidebar_Default" id="SimpleContact_Sidebar_Default" name="SimpleContact_Sidebar_Default" method="post"  action="contact rendcem.php">



to:

php:
<form class="Sidebar_Default" id="SimpleContact_Sidebar_Default" name="SimpleContact_Sidebar_Default" method="post"  action="contact_rendcem.php">

according to the documentation on their site, the from address needs to be a valid email address.

this requirement is different from host to host, but looking at your hosts documentation, it looks like that is the way they have it set up.
