If your Contact Form is not working, please try the following:


1. Check to see that you have entered the correct email address in your Contact Form settings.

To check your Contact Form email address: Click the Contact Form that you added to your site > in the Settings window, under Email To, enter or correct the email address that you want Contact Form submissions sent to.

Make sure to Save and Publish if you make any changes.


2. Check that emails sent through your Wix Contact Form are not being recognized as spam and have ended up in your Spam/Junk/Bulk Folder.

Note: If the email address you added is example@YourSiteDomainName, make sure that the MX records are pointing correctly, click here to learn more.

    Hi we are having the same issue with our website - www.csgresidential.com.au.

    We have added a contact form to the home page and also to the contact us page, neither contact forms work. It says email sent successfully but does not show up in our inboxes, they don't come up in junk mail either. Please help.

      As you are connected via Nameservers - Please ask your email hosting company what records need to be added and update them in the Domain Manager within your Wix account.  In the Domain Manager, you can add MX records, A records, CNAME records and TXT records. For more info about how to update these records, follow this link.

      If you find that your personal email address has not been working correctly since you connected your domain – it is recommended that you check if you have followed the steps as above correctly before contacting support at premium@wix.com

      I sent your an email via the contact form  on : theacarter.com

      Please let us know if you received the test message from Wix.

      Also, I noticed your contact form is not placed properly within your Wix page.

      Please click on the contact form and drag it to your site page borders.

      You will see the contact form is attached to the page within the dotted lines will appears.

      For example: 


      If the problem persist, please try to remove the contact form box and add it again.

      As stated before yes to all! Anyone who sends something ONLY from the contact form is not getting through, are you people not reading what I am saying. This is the second reply in hours that I'm repeating myself again????? At least if they were in the spam folder I could get them.

      I have edited your site and changed the email address in the contact form to my own and tried sending a mail.

      It arrived successfully.


      Are you able to receive any mail at all to your email account?

      Please try removing and re-adding the contact form to your site.


      We await your reply.

    When sending a message via my contact form page, users receive the following message "Error sending email, please try again later". My MX records are pointing correctly and I have followed each of the steps to fix the issue. I have attempted to send a message using different browsers and computers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kara

      I have just viewed your site and was able to successfully send an email by using the contact form. Have a look at the screenshot:

      If you are getting an error message when trying to send a message, please clear your browser's cache and try again.  You can find step by step instructions  here . Please also try and use different browsers and see if the issue persists.


      If you are able to send a message successfully but unable to receive the mail please check if Wix is recognized as Spam mail in your email account; you may have received the emails in your Spam folder.  Please also  make sure that you have added the correct email address to your Contact Form. 


      If you are able to receive other mails sent to those email addresses but still unable to receive mails from the contact form, please let us know.


      If you are unable to receive any mail please contact your email provider for further investigation.

      I have tried all the steps listed. I have Chrome and Internet Explorer installed, I signed out of all Wix pages, Cleared all history and temp files from both browsers yet the problem still persists.

      This only occurred after i received an email from W ix alerting me that my contact form may have been affected by a technical fault. Before then everything worked fine in the editor. Now I cant save or publish my site and potential clients cant reach me using the contact form.

      The form doesn't work in safari either. I'm paying a monthly subscription for one of your premium sites and really need this issue resolving this evening. Is it possible for an adviser to call me on the number you have against my account, this can also be found on my site.

      I have attached a screen shot of the error message i receive above. This is the same error i get in both Chrome and Explorer.

      Please log out of your wix account , clear your browser's cache and your browsing history, and login again; or try using Chrome's incognito mode (Ctrl+Shift+N) to log in to the site, make a change and publish.
