I setup a couple forms which have been working perfectly, Awesome.
They were not initially configured to send an email on submission, but I added this after. My first test worked correctly, and I got the email immediately. Since that first email, it seems no email is sent on submission. The submissions tab shows the form posts to the database without issue.
I also added Recaptcha after the first email and numerous failed attempts.
I'm fully baffled by the single success and subsequent failures. Any suggestions about where I should be looking to fix this? I am not aware of any other settings I might have changed.

I had this issue recently...
Check your spam folder and see if they're in there. (On my Localhost) Using the "Send Email From" or "Select a Form Field to use as the From Address" options when setting up an email recipient resulted in emails going to spam folder on Gmail.
I think I tested this again on the webhost and didn't have any issues using either from field option in the email recipient settings.

I actually just discovered all of the errors were going into my spam folder... not something I expected. I guess just for future reference by others trying to track it down, this is the the header information I got received:

"501 5.6.0 Data format error " made me think plain text mode might solve the solution, but no dice.
I fixed it by setting the from address to email@example.com after talking to a friend who is a sysadmin. He advised me this might be an SPF issue, and to "Use an outbound mailserver that doesn't require spf...."
