Contact Form 7 Not Sending Emails
The moment you installed the plugin, the next thing is to test if its is working. In which you’ll find out that it is not.
You have successfully filled the forms and pressed the send button. Then you get the confirmation message like below.
Your message was sent successfully. Thanks.
The Problem is you don’t get any emails from the test.
When you freshly installed the Contact Form 7 plugin, it will use the default email used by the administrator of the website, most likely the your personal email like email@example.com
Basically it will not show any error message but you won’t get any emails. What you are going to do is replace it with the email associated with your domain like firstname.lastname@example.org. Please see the image below.
I deactivated the WP-Mail-SMTP plugin because it will override the basic settings for Contact Form 7.
