i have the following function in my page.php. its appears on every page as a quick contact form.
the problem is that it can populate the database but its not sending me the data thru email.

function submitContact($data, $form) {
$submission = new ContactFormSubmission();
$form->saveInto($submission);

$email = new Email($data->Email, "name@yourdomain.com", "Quick contact from website", $data->Message);
$email->send();

$submission->write();
Session::set('Contacted', true);
Director::redirectBack();
}

Have you already checked to send a simple e-mail? Example: $email = new Email ( return adress, your adress, subject, body).
I think that SilverStripe can't create the $body. Furthermore you can check this with Debug::Dump().

Hello patty,
I corrected your source code, now you're able to send the email. You declare $data as an Object but it's an array.
This was the only mistake! If my solution doesn't work, please write it down so I can look over the source code again.

Best regards

Pascal

//modified SubmitContact

function submitContact($data, $form) {
$submission = new ContactFormSubmission();
$form->saveInto($submission);
$submission->write();

$email = new Email($data['Email'], "name@yourdomain.com", "Quick contact from website", $data['Message']);
$email->send();

Session::set('Contacted', true);
Director::redirectBack();
}
