[Pro] form problem

I have Freeway Pro 5.5.

My website has been up for years and I have two forms on it that have worked fine since I started, pre 2007.

Suddenly the form has stopped working.

When I fill it in and click submit, it takes me to that acknowledgment page correctly, but no email turns up with the form information that I have filled in.

Any ideas what might have happened anyone?

Many thanks

One possibility is that the php form script used back on FW5.5 will no longer work on newer versions of php I’m sure that’s happed to me - it was along time ago using FW7. Your hosting provider might have updated to a newer php version (probably php7) which broke and stopped your old FW5.5 form script working.

Another reason could be are you sending the form results to a mailbox on the same provider (i.e. [email protected] when the site is on mydomain.com)? Or are you sending to say [email protected] when the site is on mydomain.com? If the latter personally I’m seeing that a reply form more often needs to be authenticated for that scenario, meaning the script needs to login and send from a dedicated mailbox on mydomain.com so it sends from a mail server rather than the web server. I assume receiving mail servers are upping the anti on what is stopped as spam.
