    My contact form is working for most, but the few people who can't get it to work are all using Macs with the latest OS. They have tried in Safari, Firefox and Chrome. When they click on a field to type, nothing appears. Here is the link to the page having the issues: http://www.folkwest.com/#!pfb-volunteer/c11dq

    My Contact form isn't working.  I sent a message to myself using my wife's e-mail address, twice.  I never received either message at the e-mail address that I listed on the Contact form.  That e-mail address is functioning, and no, the message was not intercepted my my ISP's spam filter.  Can you help?

      No, I haven't received it.  I also have access to the e-mail's blocked by Comcast's span filter, and there are no e-mails stored there.

    • Ilia Wix Team

      Replied by Ilia April 6, 2014


      Do you have any other email address you can try and configure the contact form to?

      Also, I advise contacting Comcast and asking them if you have another filter except for the Spam filter. Sometimes ISPs block certain addresses and the spam filter has nothing to do with this since the emails don't even reach the address.

      I've tested your contact form with my own personal email address, it worked flawlessly.

      I suggest that you create a dummy gmail account and test it out with that email address and it appears that something may be blocking your emails in your email account.


      Let us know how it went and if you require further assistance.

      I was able to properly use the contact form and send a message as you can see here:

      Please note that you've made the Phone and Email fields mandatory. If you haven't filled these fields, you will receive these error messages.

      the mandatory fields are set via the contact form settings (go to the editor --> Click the contact form --> 'Settings' --> under 'Customize form fields' select the mandatory ones). 


      Please provide us with steps for recreating the problem if you're still experiencing this issue.

      thanks I did not get the message at the primary email but did get it at the 2nd email I listed. The 1st email is an aol email. Might that have something to do with it? And why when I sent 2 from the published website did they not go thru to either email.

      The AOL issue may be addressed on the following thread: Contact form not sending to AOL mailboxes 10/12/13.


      I have just sent you a test message, it says the message has been successfully sent. Please check both your inboxes.

      Please elaborate in regard to your second question - in what case has the email not been delivered to both addresses?


      Thanks and I await for your reply.

      We have contacted AOL and they assured us that the problem has been resolved. Unfortunately, we can see that the issue is still persisting.

      We will contact them again and will update this thread.

      Using my own email address on your contact form I was able to receive a message.

      Please try your personal email address and let us know if you get the same error.

      If you can send an email to a different mail address then the solution may reside in your email configuration.

      Can you send emails to these mail boxes outside the contact form?


      Awaiting your reply.

      I assume you are referring to the site: cqworlds.com ?

      Please note: The pages are not loading, as the menu buttons are covered by a text box.


      In order to solve this issue, please resize the box to a minimum size:

    Hi there, 

    Unfortunately I am unable to receive emails via my contact form - I noticed earlier in the thread a user was having a similar issue: My form will say the details/email has been sent successfully, however the email does not reach any of the three devices I have the contact form directed towards. Correct email is set etc. 

    MX tables are updated. Can you please advise?

    My contact form have also problems. I can't complete the field "Name"  it can t be writable. I already made this field mandatory as well as the others fields....so my error message is "Please fill in all required fields."



    • CarleyS Wix Team

      Replied by CarleyS March 24, 2014

      Hi dabijaanca,


      The reason that the "Name" field on your Contact Form was not working was that the text box above it covered it as can be seen in the screen shot below:

      I moved this text box up for you and saved your site, however I have not yet published. If you are happy with the change, please click Publish from inside your Editor.


      If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
