Fixed: Contact Form 7 Issues with Office 365 Email (GoDaddy)

Contact Form 7 not sending emails to Office 365/GoDaddy account?

It’s a simple fix!

Solution:

The problem is that cPanel’s MX Entry is set to Local Mail Exchanger by default. This means that if you set a web form in your website to use email@yourdomain.com and it’s the same as your website, the web server will attempt to handle the email itself (because it also hosts your site).

To solve the problem you can change the setting in cPanel to Remote Mail Exchanger in which case the web server will use the MX records to route the email.

This problem will occur with any host who uses cPanel including GoDaddy, HostGator, etc
