Email Notification of Reports not getting delivered

Permalink
I am at a loss. I have an unmodified form block on a page and for whatever reason (see below) it does not send the email to the email address set in the options panel.

Any ideas??

**EMAILS ARE ENABLED. THIS EMAIL WAS SENT TO mail()**
Template Used: block_form_submission
To: karen@dtvc.com, karen@drapertriangle.com, chrishample@drapertriangle.com
From: chris@champles.co
Subject: Submit a Plan Form Submission
Body: 
There has been a submission of the form Submit a Plan on through your concrete5 website.
Company Name
CHD
Contact Name

Then there is also this...

Are you on a LAMP environment? Are you able to check the apache logs?

e.g. fire a email attempt and then check for errors in:

Debian:
tail -500 /var/log/apache2/error.log

Fedora:
tail -500 /var/log/httpd/error.log

You might need to use an SMTP account to send email from your site. You can set that up in the dashboard. A quick test is to try sending yourself an email from the forgot your password form on the login page. If you don't get that email then your server is not letting you send mail with PHP, set up an SMTP account and you should be good.

Hi pvernaglia,

I realized that I cannot receive the email from forgot my password form on the login page as you said. I tried to set up a SMTP account in SMTP methods and used external SMTP server to send a test mail. Unfortunately, I was still get nothing from Concrete5. Any suggestions?

All the best

Thank you guys for the extremely prompt response. I found the solution here...
http://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/customizing_c5/notificati...
and even though I (thought I) searched fairly well for it, I've not seen this post before today. Maybe I was using the wrong key words.

Anyway, thank you again for getting ideas to me so quickly! I am quickly becoming a Concrete5 fan (with this being my first site and all)

On another topic, I have another post in the forum RE the tag block and reordering it to be sorted alpha if either of you have any ideas. I think that one is a tough one to search for since the keyword I am looking for is 'tag'.
