gform_pre_send_email not working

  1. Hi - I am trying to use this filter to add some functionality but I'm not getting any response from it. It's in the functions.php file here is the code. Basically i am distributing the messages to different recipients and then keeping a record who got what.

    add_filter("gform_pre_send_email", "rah_leads_gravity");
    function rah_leads_gravity($email){
    	// Interaction with message data
    	$thisEmailAddress = get_option('nextLead');
    	$email["to"] = $thisEmailAddress;
    	$senderEmail = $email["from"];
    	$senderSubject = $email["subject"];
    	$timeSent = time(); 
    	// Queue next email address
    	//Update message list
    	global $wpdb;
    	$wpdb->insert('wp_rah_leads_messages', array(
    			toEmail => $thisEmailAddress,
    			fromEmail => $senderEmail,
    			emailTitle => $senderSubject,
    			emailDate => $timeSent
    	return $email;

    This filter is only available for 1.7+. Are you using our 1.7 Beta 2?

  3. Hi,

    I'm using 1.7 Beta 2 and this is not working for me. Even something simple, like the example below, does not work.

    add_filter("gform_pre_send_email", "route_email");
    function route_email($email){
    	$email['to'] = '';
    	return $email;

    I don't know whether to use gform_pre_notification_save or gform_notification. Can you guys help me understand the proper way to do this?

    I'm going to check with the developers to see what's going on with this. Please be patient.

    The developers tested what you have and it worked fine for them. I would like to send you our logging add-on to see if it can pinpoint the source of the issue. If that's okay, can you send me an e-mail at please?
