Support Forum

Every time that you post a problem, PLEASE add the Joomla and the extension's versions and revisions (for example: Joomla 3.3.6, Contact Enhanced 3.3.5), PHP version and Server's Operating System. If you only manage only one site it is easier if you edit your profile and just add that information to your signature. Don't forget to add a detailed description of the problem. If possible, write down all steps to simulate the problem.

Before submitting a new post, PLEASE make sure you are running the latest version, test in different browsers (IE, FF, Chrome,..) and clear Joomla and browser's cache after every change you make.

Also, most questions are already answered in our FAQ and in iFAQ and Contact Enhanced documentation pages.

Dear jnfaerch,

Which Mailer are you using in Joomla Global Configuration? Contact Enhanced uses Joomla frameowrk to send emails.
Usually setting to SMTP solves this issue.

Please read these articles:

Thx - SMTP did the trick (even though I've been using PHP mail flawlessly for years.)
