Submissions No Longer Arriving Via Email

  1. HI GF,

    We picked up a new client and thankfully, they use Gravity Forms on their existing site. Unfortunately, it looks like form submissions are no longer being received via email (admin or user). We tried sending to the following email address extensions to no avail: @[our domain], @gmail, @yahoo, @fastmail. I wonder how we might clear up this email notification issue?

    Note: It looks like their plugin and WordPress are a little out of date: v1.6.4.5 and v3.4.1, respectively.

    We have a number of forum topics regarding this issue.

    The steps to troubleshoot are of course to update to the latest versions of WordPress and Gravity Forms.

    Can I please also have you try the following steps to see if there is a plugin/theme conflict that we can isolate?

    Lastly, can you try a WordPress SMTP plugin to see if you can get around any WordPress sendmail issues that might exist?

    I can't say that any of those stand out. We don't maintain a list of plugins that don't work with Gravity Forms because they and we change so often that it would be impossible to manage the data and do all the testing.

    Let me know what you find. Also, please try the SMTP plugin if you haven't already.

  5. After more research we discovered our new client's host did not have sendmail, postfix, or some other SMTP service installed on the box. Interesting.

    While that's being installed, we added the WP Mail SMTP plugin and it seems to be doing the job.

    Thank you for your help.
