I am trying to send email to user after form submission through episerver forms email template which is availble in form settings tab.
I have set the necessary information on the form on the settings tab and for configuring email server, for confirmation mail to work,In my web.config file I have done following settings -
but I am unable to receive confirmation email on my email address.
Is I am missing something?
What are the complete steps that I have to follow to use EPiserver forms mail sending feature (Send email after submission).
Many thanks in advance.
Seems like a gmail issue more than epi. Can you try with a different smtp server? If not, try this:
I have tried with differnet smtp server.But still I am not receiving any mail.
Do you have any errors in the log file when you try to send the email?
Normally, this works out of the box with Episerver Forms when you set up the form itself to send emails, nothing much to configure (other than SMTP settings).
I usually verify that this is working by running smtp4dev and then changing the settings to:
<smtp deliveryMethod="Network" from="Test - test <email@example.com>">
<network host="localhost" port="25" />
Thanks for reply.
No, i don't have any errors in my log file and I have also verified in smtp4dev with the proper settings in web.config. and it is working in smtp4dev.
But still I am not getting any confirmation email.
But I am getting forms error on console which says
Uncaught ReferenceError: epi is not defined at initializeOnRenderingFormDescriptor (GetFormInitScript:6) at GetFormInitScript:30
does this error can cause an issue in receiving email confirmation.
Most probably the error you see in console doesn't have anything to do with emails not being sent. Especially, if the emails are caught with smtp4dev. This indicates that your smtp settings are not working. You can give this a try by sending an email somewhere yourself (outside of Forms).
As for the console error, you are probably missing these:
@Html.RequiredClientResources("Header") and @Html.RequiredClientResources("Footer")
To separate out issues try local delivery first if that is working it is smtp setup issue not episerver.

In order to complete Brian Choi's answer: Efter du set upp this meildrop solution, you need to change the transformation of the web.config file för other invironment like the following:
<system.net xdt:Transform="Replace"> <mailSettings> <smtp> <network host="xxx.xx.xxx.xxx" /> </smtp> </mailSettings> </system.net>
Brian Choi +1
The following server settings are working properly.
<smtp deliveryMethod="network" deliveryFormat="SevenBit" from="firstname.lastname@example.org">
Actually might be there were some issues with our server settings, but these smtp server setting are working fine and I am receiving confirmation email after submission.
Also, @MarijaJemuovic first answer was correct and @BrianChoi method for checking at local delivery first is helpful.
Thank you everyone for your time and help. :)
Finally done with the same setting stated at the starting of post. I think the day was not good when we started to implement this.
