Hi, I set up a number of enquiry forms on my site, but after testing I’m not getting any emails. Quite concerned clients may have already used the forms and I didn’t get their messages. Please advise urgently?
One page with a form: http://emeraldeyephotography.biz/wedding-photography-retreats-2014-capturing-the-moment/
I put in my usual address (not my admin one) firstname.lastname@example.orgFebruary 12, 2014 at 1:34 am #42049
I’ve checked my spam, I’ve checked the coding of the form, there is no sign of the emails. And I can’t find anywhere in wordpress that shows the emails that may have been sent with the form. This is so concerning, I’ve had this set up for a few days and more than likely have missed some enquiries.February 12, 2014 at 8:10 am #42068

Is your server on Window or Linux? If you have a Windows server, check with your hosting company to see if you have PHP Mail installed on your server or else no mail will send from any themes contact form. I recommend contacting your hosting company if you are unsure of this.

I have no idea but I’ll go into the control panel and look into it and see if I can locate PHP Mail.February 17, 2014 at 12:15 am #42409
Ok the situation is here:
My website/blog is set up on another domain, not the one I use for email. My website is http://www.emeraldeyephotography.biz (www.emeraldeye.biz redirects to that).
My email is set up through gmail so I log in as email@example.com
I don’t want email going to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please advise where I need to go to make any required changes? I type in for the email to go to email@example.com but nothing comes through.February 17, 2014 at 12:20 am #42410
I’ve solved the situation temporarily. I’ve set up all emails from the domain emeraldeyephotography.biz to forward to emeraldeye.biz.
I put firstname.lastname@example.org in as the email to direct to. The emails now come through as a forward. This must mean the issue is with the hosting of emeraldeye.biz which I will look into.February 17, 2014 at 7:48 am #42426

I do not have much knowledge about emails and accounts but it sounds like your email accounts may be set to local, so when an email is sent out, it looks locally before sending out to an external address. I recommend double checking this with your hosting company as it does sounds like a server set up issue.
