Contact form - not sending to admin email address

edited May 2014 in HealthCentre

I have a problem with the contact form in the Contact-Us page. When I submit any form, the message should be sent to the 'admin_email', but that's not happening. The message goes nowhere... :(

Any help with this issue? I need to have it working urgently. My client launches the website on Monday.

Many thanks in advance.


  • Hi 

    You can also use easy smtp mail plugin

  • Thanks, Priyanshu, but it's still not working :(

    I don't use my gmail account, but an email account hosted by another company. I filled correctly all the fields, but the submit button is not sending anything.

    Can you please give me any solution?

    Many thanks.

    Just to add... I tried with SSL turned ON and OFF, and neither option worked. I contacted my hosting and the confirmed that the server wasn't getting any email. I've also tried with a gmail email, but didn't work either. 
  • Which mailserver your are using and also your hosting provider.

  • My hosting provider is dinahosting. My mail is associated to my own domain. Do you need the name of my domain or the SMTP host?
  • yes if possible both
  • My domain is '' and my SMTP host is:

    with SSL "on": 
    with SSL "off":
  • Which smtp plugin you are using
  • Webriti SMTP plugin
  • If possible provide me the temporary access over email at themes[at]webriti[dot]com

    Sure, check your inbox and please let me know if you got my email.
  • check your smtp port with hosting provider
  • It's 465 for SSL on and 25 for SSL off
  • will get back on this after 12 hours. its already very late according to IST

    Ok, thank you very much. We need to fix this as soon as possible. The web should be tomorrow launched. 
    Shall I keep your temporary access?
  • Hi 

    I have also tried with wp smtp mail plugin . Your SMTP settings is not correct.

    Do one thing just check the test mail utility in wp smtp mail plugin(Settings>Email) and show the debbuging output to your hosting provider.

    Key Errors are 
    1. "SMTP Error: Could not authenticate."
    2. SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host.
    Also check your details once again, I mean your username,password,port and host.

  • Hi, I've checked all my details and I've changes SSL by TLS encryption, since my hosting provider uses that one. It gives me now a different error... I will as my hosting provider but I am not sure wether they can deal with this issue... 

    I'll come back to you in a while, when I have an answer from them.

    Is it necessary to have the TSL or SSL encryption "on"?

    Thank you.

    Actually that's totally depends on the Mail Server Hosting .

    Ok, they've checked and it's now working. But it's sending the emails to both the account I have specified and the admin email. Is that the way it should work?

    Many thanks for your help!
