wp_mail() and PHP mail()

Recommended Posts

I can't figure out why all 3 of my forms (created with Contact Form 7 ) on my Word Press site (example.com) is not sending form submissions to an email hosted by GoDaddy (info@example.com). I double checked the form is configured correct. It is. So could the problem be a hosting issue? Could it be that Hawkhost does not support wp_mail() and the standard PHP mail() ? Would I be forced to set up using SMTP? Any help would be great!

We support the mail() function meaning wp_mail() would work so that is not the issue. What sounds like your issue is your email routing in your cPanel is setup incorrectly. If you're hosting your email externally you need to login to cPanel got to email routing then let it know that you're using a remote exchanger. After that it will send the mail out from the server opposed to trying to locally deliver which is the default setting.
