I'm new to ChronoForms. Trying it out and getting used to what it allows.

I've got a very simple form built, and it submits, but nothing is sent.
<table>
<tbody>
<tr>
<td>Name:</td>
<td><input name="name" size="30" type="text" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Phone Number:</td>
<td><input name="phone" size="30" maxlength="10" type="text" /></td>
<td>
<p class="small grey">
8162221234
</p>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td colspan="3"><input class="submit_button" type="submit" value="Submit" /></td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>


But I'm getting this when I submit with it.
_POST: Array ( [name] => Lance [phone] => 12343234 )
Case 2: Use template
E-mail: 'Yes' custom
Email not sent

What would make it not send emails?

Hi Lance,

This all looks good apart from that one line that says 'Email not sent'. ChronoForms uses the Joomla mailer and this message says that the mailer has failed to send the message.

There are various reasons this could happen and it's not simple to debug remotely. The main things to check are in this FAQ.

Can your site send emails at all - for example if you click on a 'email' icon on a content page?

I turned off the send email on content items, never desired (or tried) them. Seems that's part of my issue. After trying to use Joomla's I was told it was invalid address, send and reciever.

I used my normal account, so I assume Joomla is missing something it needs to see the email accounts, or send.

I'm running off a local install of WAMP. Do you know what tools I would be missing by chance?

Hi Lance,

If you are on a local WAMP there's a fair chance that you don't have a mailserver installed. I have XAMPP installed here and that comes with the Mercury Mail server but I think it has to be set up separately. You may be able to find some other small server that will do the trick for you.
