    Contact Us link not working properly

    I'm a newbie to Joomla, site nearly ready to go live. Testing the Contact Us / Send us a Message module it looks like the message has been sent but it never arrives at our Admin office nor does a copy arrive to the sender. Any obvious setting I have to work on?

    Can't remember exactly coz it's been a while since I've done anything there but make sure you have your mail settings correct in the global configuration menu

    Looking at my Global settings I can't see anything obvious, anyone point me toward the answer to this one a bit more please - is it enable web services which is currently set at No?

    Geoff,

    This is a screen print of my PHP Mail Settings. Guessing from what you have said yours looks like this.

    Is the site hosted by SWGfL? Or somewhere else?

    I've got a feeling that in the PHP.ini file there is a mail setting that needs to be enabled. Sometimes this can be done by putting a custom PHP.ini file in the folder for Joomla (I had to do that the other day to get Moodle to run on my hosting).

    Cheers,
    Steve
