Form not sending [SOLVED]

Post by bry » Sun Sep 16, 2018 11:28 pm

I checked the FAQ and have changed the email to one within the domain but that still doesn't work. The host definitely allows php.

The website is http://www.senatorligon.com/join.php

Thanks for any help.

Somebody sent a test that came in IP 86.29.146.___ came in, city metown, state 12345, from me code a bloody mess. I do not understand why your test came but mine won't. I tried a gmail address.

Any ideas??

Did you check your spam?

Either the host is blocking the email or is blocked by a (spam) filter.

Yes, we checked spam folder. I will contact Dreamhost.

Thanks much.

Do you know why those emails take so long 6-7 hours to come in?

The emails are sent by the server of the host, so only they can explain why it takes so long.
Note that this is not normal behavior.

The problem was that I did not have an email from that domain listed in the "from" window. Just go to object properties of the form.
Out from the "Email address" click on "More" and then be sure to put a domain email in the from window. That fixed it and they now
arrive within minutes.

My bad.
