Contact Us Doesn't Send Email

Postby danlee58 » Sat Jun 18, 2016 1:22 am

I have a mature Joomla 1.0 website. It has been working well for a long time, but now Contact Us doesn't send an email message to the selected individual. There are no error messages, and I don't know where the email goes.

How can I find what happens to the email?

I am using PHP Version 5.3.3

1. Login into your Joomla Dashboard.

2. Click on "System", "Global configuration".

3. Choose the mail server configuration from "Server" tab and find the "Mail settings" section:

Here check whether you select 'PHP Mail' or 'SMTP'. If you are select SMTP then see this video tutorial https://www.[youtube].com/watch?v=4cx72odOSt4

I have selected 'PHP Mail'. This was under the 'Mail' Tab, not the 'Server' Tab.

Contact Us does work for all domains except for @yahoo.com. If the sender's email address is (name)@yahoo.com, the message doesn't go through, but if the sender's email address is @gmail.com, or any other domain, the message does go through.

I think the problem is in com_contact/contact.php. Specifically in the vcard function.

I need some way to debug this module, to find why the message doesn't get sent, when a Yahoo domain is in the sender's address.

Is there another version of com_contact for Joomla 1.0?
