I am using the Pixel & Tonic Contact Form plugin. I set it up using the Mijingo tutorial. Everything appears to be working ...

I hit submit, redirects to thank you, no message received. Setup looks good. Hidden input fields appear good. Error messages working when required inputs (fromEmail and message) left blank. Redirects to thank you. Honeypot setup looks good. But, no message received. And I don't know how to confirm it is really being sent. What might I try? Thanks

I am in dev mode

There's a good article here for troubleshooting email errors and well as email deliverability issues: https://craftcms.com/support/troubleshooting-email-errors

TL/DR: Don't use PHP's mail/sendmail methods in production and even in development, you aren't guaranteed email deliverability with those.


Are you testing in a local environment? If you don't have a mail server configured then PHP won't be able to send the email.

  • Yes that is correct. Now the noob question - will this work real-world as is?

  • Haven't seen your code, but if it's set up properly; yes.
