How to Fix "Failed to send your message" in Contact FORM 7 on wordpress


Staff member
Hello I have Contact Form 7. It was working nicely. I wanted to add captcha to my form so contact form 7 has an option to add captcha but it requires integration with settings. I followed the same mentioned steps. I went to Google’s reCAPTCHA admin page, Registered my website and got site key and secret key then added those keys to wp-admin
Contact > Integration
and save them. Then my contact form was not working.

Then i opened the
tab in my contact form 7. I have lots all the settings. not sure what settings to use.

I have two version of site, one is live and one is demo site. So I have copied the
settings of demo to live site. Copied exactly the same settings.

My demo's FROM setting contains this

[your-name] <[email protected]>

For example this is my demo site
so added
in FROM Section.

but my contact form is giving me this error

Failed to send your message. Please try later or contact the administrator by another method.

What I have done so far.

<li>I have tested on default theme, still giving me same error.</li>
<li>I have deactivated all other plugins, still giving me same error.</li>
<li>I have deactivated Contact form 7, and activated again, still same

Contact form on my demo site is working perfectly, but not on live website. Contact form has same settings on demo and live.
