Wordpress Contact Form 7 not sending emails

Posted September 20, 2020 713 views

I have a default Wordpress installation with Contact Form 7 plugin on an Ubuntu droplet. Additionally I also have mail-utils setup (so that mail works). When I fill up the contact form and click Send I get a response “Thank you for your message. It has been sent.” but I didn’t receive any email at all.

How do I go about troubleshooting this problem?

Please help. Thanks!

Hey, @philwee,

Could you try using the contact form and after that do tail -n 20 /var/log/messages and post the output?
