    Hello, for some time now we have not been receiving new comment notifications via email, or any messages from the contact us page? the email address on the general settings page is correct, but for some reason they are not being emailed. I have checked the spam folder of the email box and cant find anything. Any ideas?

    Hi,

    Please check with your web hosting company.
    Your web hosting should allow PHP mail function to work.

    If your web hosting company requires you to use SMTP, you can use this plugin.

    Thank you

    Apparently we are receiving emails from the contact us page, but no notifications about new comments. Would this be a different issue than our host?

    Hi,

    Please go to WordPress admin -> Settings -> Discussion.
    Find the setting -> Email me whenever
    Check the checkbox for “Anyone posts a comment “, and “A comment is held for moderation ”

    The rest is up to your web hosting server.

    Thank you.

    All of those settings were correct, as I had checked them all multiple times. I checked with my host and there were no issues on their end. I isolated the problem to a conflict with either akismet or jetpack. When I disabled those plugins notifications started working fine. As I re-enabled them, things kept working so I am not really sure which one caused the issue, but apparently just stopping/starting those plugins resolved the issue.

    Hi,

    In Jetpack plugin there is different modules, you can disable jetpack comments module.
    Maybe this is the one causing issue.

    Thank you.
