Joomla! My contact form send mail, which i never receive.

My position is, mail can be sent through my contact form ( ) BUT i don’t receive it. I check “sent a copy to yourself”, tried different mail accounts; but the sender accounts also don’t receive the copy of the mail they sent to me.

  • joomla have my mail by installation, it is gmail. i believe what we did is to make visitors send mail to my gmail account. because settings are like that at joomla. this settings SAYS mail sent, but i cant receive them. when i try this settings : i get an error while trying to send mail as “smtp connection failed”.

  • should i look somewhere else than my gmail account? but the sender accounts don’t receive their own mail’s copy also.

  • I have installed Postfix and configured it, by looking at this tutorial:

THANKS you guys.

You need to create /etc/postfix/virtual.db first, which can be done by running the following command:

sudo postmap /etc/postfix/virtual

Don’t forget to restart Postfix:

sudo service postfix restart
