  1. Hi, thanks for the great tutorial. I'm having problems with the message not going to my email address, and not appearing in the Feedback section on the dashboard. Everything up to then is fine, including the message that the message has been sent. Any idea why I'm not receiving it at my email address? Many thanks and hope you can help.

  2. Invest in a good mic and soundcard! just a tip!

  3. Great tutorial, I particularly like how you add the time settings to allow viewers to go to that part of the tutorial they need.  Great Touch!
    Thanks for thinking of us viewers.

  4. very straightforward.. thank you! 

  5. Brill tutorial! I have one question though. If I add an external email that is not the same as the site domain name such as with Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail etc the form works. But if I try to forward the email to it brings up an error. Any ideas why this is happening?

  6. Pretty straightforward.. thank you!

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