I have a problem with the redirect page, sometimes don´t redirect for the page that I put and redirect to a random page.

This is my code:
<form action="" method="POST" encType="multipart/form-data"> <label for="form-email">Nombre*:</label> <input type="text" name="nombre" required> <label for="form-email">Email*:</label> <input type="email" name="_replyto" required> <label for="form-email">Telefono:</label> <input type="text" name="telefono" > <input type="hidden" name="_subject" value="Formulario de contacto Web"> <input type="hidden" name="_after" value=""> <input type="hidden" name="_honeypot" value=""> <input type="hidden" name="_confirmation" value="Gracias"> <input type="submit" value="Enviar"> </form>

Hi guys,

I am new to mailto so i noticed that i couldn't see the test mail sent to my email box.

I only got the message from mailto "You received this because you signed up for, a form to email service.

without showing the content of the mail

Have a Wonderful Day!"

I meet the same issue as ulpoh, never received an email. Thank you in advance for your help

A tracking pixel inside the mail. Come on @kidGodzilla, seriously?

Copy link

is this still maintained?

Copy link

seems like not maintained, I didn't get any confirmation emails etc. Really nice concept, sorry to see it not working

Copy link

Sorry for the late reply, I didn't get notifications for this (I had sold the project a few years back).

It seems the new owner abandoned it after adding a spammy redirect to the Thank you page a while back, and then stopped paying for Sendgrid & the domain renewal this year.

I've since restored service and reverted the changes. Should be back online and running now.

As for the Tracking pixel @CodeAlDente mentioned, it's either a Sendgrid default, or something added after I stopped working on this. I'll take a look at one of the test emails I sent to see if it's there.

Copy link

that's awesome! Did not expect to hear back! Thanks @kidGodzilla

Copy link

@kidGodzilla - Hi! Just discovered this amazing service. Everything seems to be set up right, except that when I receive the emails, I don't see their content, it just says "You've received an email". Maybe I'm missing something very obvious, but I don't really know what to do. Can you help? Thanks!

Copy link

Hi again @kidGodzilla - I just figured it out, I didn't have a name attribute on the form fields. It's working great now. Thank you!

@kidGodzilla I'm having issues with the redirect as well—I've put in a value for it, but when I submit the form, I wind up stuck on a blank screen with a teensy recaptcha in the corner:


My form looks like this (simplified):

<form action="" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="hidden" name="_after" value="">

The email sends, but it looks as though it gets stuck at the recaptcha step. Any tips on how to fix it?

This user has exceeded their Quota.

This is kind of a problem since this is the main way to contact Is there some other way to contact the team?

Copy link

@sarahmonster Does this happen with every request? From what I read on MailThis page they said that they may make some users complete captchas to help reduce potential spam. Maybe their captcha service is broken?

Even if I verified, when I try sending a form it says:
"Success. A verification link has been sent to your email. Alias:"
Every time I try reverifying it just says:
"This email has already been verified"

Copy link

I have problems to login, as seems to be dead ...
I'll start using this great service and wonder, if it is stable and can be used in productional environments.
Please give a feedback.

@KingstonLeung03 Did you ever figure out the verification issue? I am having the same problem where it sends me a verification email instead of a form

I tried to send an angular form through angular service. But got this error below. Is anyone meet this type of issue?
error: SyntaxError: Unexpected token '<', "<!DOCTYPE "... is not valid JSON"

Thanks in advance!
