Contact Us Page


I created a test application on my laptop (localhost). I am wondering if the submitted form on the contact us page would email the form right out of the box and without any configuration? Of course, I have changed the adminEmail in the main.php at the config directory. But I don’t seem to receive any emails.

Please tell me if:

  1. the form will/can be emailed from the Contact Us page on localhost?

  2. If the answer to 1 is yes, please tell me what I need to do to make it work on the localhost.

  3. If the answer to 1 is no, pelase tell me what I need to do to make it work on the server (hosting).


You need to configure mail to work properly on your server. How exactly that is done depends on the type of environment you have set up.

Could you explain a little bit more what you mean by the type of environment? What configurations need to be set? Do I need to use a third-party widget?

To send an email you need a server that send emails. Have you this server?
