    contact form not sending e-mail Link to this post

    I can't work out what I need to do to get the contact form working. Can't find anything the explains how to configure the s-mail server that would be needed to send forms submitted as e-mails. Should it just work or do I need to install and configure a package on my ubuntu 7.10 server?

    I can view submissions in the CMS however I need the submissions to be sent as e-mails. This is a critical requirement and is preventing me from making my site live.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    It worked when I was using 2.1.0. I wonder if it's a 2.1.1 issue and won't be an issue with 2.2?

    1. Can you confirm that in another PHP file if you just run the following, that it works:

    <? mail ( "you@somewhere.com", "subject line", "test body" ); ?>

    That will then confirm that whether its SilverStripe or your PHP/Mail setup.

    2. Does the newsletter module send emails fine?

    In regards to SilverStripe 2.2.0 having the problem or not, you can download the release candidate right now and find out.

    If you can confirm over the weekend that its SilverStripe, and 2.2.0rc1 fails, then add a ticket at open.silverstripe.com, which is where we monitor bugs, and we'll fix it
