Just can't get ChronoForms to send mail (Joomla 3)

duneman 25 Jul, 2013
Hello,

I have been busy the lost couple of days, reading all kinds of topics everywhere on the subject, but I just can't get ChronoForms to send e-mail. Very frustrating!

My Joomla is set to e-mail via SMTP, that works just fine (Joomla sends email perfectly). However the forms I made, just keep saying 'Kan mailfunctie niet uitvoeren'.

As far as I can tell, none of the suggestions found, seem to fix my problem. Any Chrono experts out there, who could help me solve this? Would be much appreciated.

Adding the debugger, it says:
Data Array:

From e-mail in Joomla is set to [email]xxx@opgeruimd-verdiend.nl[/email]

Oh, I just set Jooma Error Messaging to Maximum. Loading the form, it says:

Strict Standards: Only variables should be assigned by reference in E:\HostingSpaces\Vanduijn2\opgeruimd-verdiend.nl\wwwroot\administrator\components\com_chronoforms\form_actions\show_html\cfaction_show_html.php(142) : eval()'d code on line 3

Does this tell anyone perhaps, what is going wrong?

Regards,
Marco.

Hi Marco,

There have been some changes in the Joomla! email functions in Joomla! 3 and I'm not sure that the standard Email action has quite caught up yet. If you use my Email [GH] action that seems to be working OK.

Hi, same problem 😟
I have a website with chronoform v4 originally configured for sending e-mails from an account like some_name@some_domain.com; all worked fine, but now chronoforms doesn't sends mails to certain recipients. Note that emails sent to some_name@gmail.com are regulary delivered; e-mails sent from joomla (configured with sendmail) are also regulary delivered. I think that some mail servers don't deliver e-mails not matching the site domain. I tried to reconfigure "from" field with a mail address like some_name@site_domain.com, both in chronoforms and in Joomla. All seems ok, but 'From' data are not updated in chronoform and I get the same issue: some e-mails aren't delivered, and e-mails delivered (i.e. the ones sent to some_name@gmail.com) seem sent from the originally configured account some_name@some_domain.com
How I can change 'From' setting?
P.S.: I've installed Chronoforms 5 and Email [GH] but issue remains. Any suggestion? Thanks!
PP.SS.: I apologize for my bad english 😢

Hi Nicdales,

Let's test this on v4, so you say that the emails work fine on Joomla ? if yes then please use the same "From email" and "From name" from Joomla mail settings in your form and use a To address @ gamil or yahoo.

If this doesn't help then please add a debugger action after the email action and post the debug results.

Regards,
Max

Hi Max,
thanks for your reply.
From email and from name match Joomla mail settings. I configured my form for sending mails to a gmail, yahoo and my corporate accounts. the mail sent to gmail account was delivered, the others two mails were not delivered. Plese note that the mail sent to gmail account and regulary delireved came from a previus configured email account, different from that configured in the From email of Chronoforms and Joomla, and not matching website domain.
Now I cannot post debug result; I'll send you later.
Regards
Nicola

Only the mail to @gmail.com was delivered. A screenshot from thunderbird:
nicdales 16 May, 2014
OK, mail sent to yahoo.com was delivered as spam
Max_admin 16 May, 2014
As long as the email is delivered then the form works fine, you now have the combination of from/to addresses to send it, if its not delivered to specific addresses then you will need to check the mail server of these addresses, the spam issue can be solved by selecting the message and marking it as not spam, this should help after sometime.

Hi Max, thanks for your reply.
Please look at thunderbird screenshot: mail seems sent from this accont: @edilizia.nardo.puglia.it instead: I'm not able to change it to correct account matching my domain: @llpp.nardo.puglia.it
Any suggestion?
Max_admin 16 May, 2014
The debug displays the from email correctly which means that the mail setup in Chronoforms was correct, but it was changed later, maybe its something to do at your mail server setup, please try to change the from email under the Joomla global config ?
