VERY IMPORTANT. For many months the contact forms I had installed here continued not to work correctly. That is, having typed in the "security" letters it simply moves on to another set rather than posting the message back to Homestead who would
then post it on to me.
THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT ALL BEING WELL I HAVE NOW SOLVED THE PROBLEM
It turned out that emails were being forwarded to me BUT instead of landing in my Inbox, they went elsewhere. We (by that I meant the BT engineer and I) are not quite sure how, but in several cases the destination listed against each of my contacts was wrong, instead of reading INBOX. I have now been through ALL my contacts and ensured the destination reads Inbox for all of them, and I shall now send myself a message from here to double check it now works OK.
OK, IT DID WORK - BUT when it came to the I am not a Robot section, I had to have about 6 goes before it registered.
As the "word" I had to copy had different letters written sometimes in bold, and others were also italicised, I thaught that might be the problem as there was no way of formatting the letters in the box. So I tried writing it in a document, adjusting the formatting and then copying and pasting that version in. All it did was to change it to all caps and nothing else. Determined to at the very least send the message, I tried again, and again, until finally I used fingers from both hands to press on the SEND button. That time it worked without a hitch. Now the problem may have been my laptop, as someties it does seem to need a bit of an extra push! HOWEVER, PLEASE TRY A FEW TIMES, PRESSING HARD ON YOUR SPACE BAR AND IT SHOULD EVENTUALLY WORK. IF ALL ELSE FAILS - GO VIA ROY! (see below.) A few days later I received a message from someone I had not know before, and it came directly to my INBOX, so it looks as if all is now OK,
As we don't know how the destinations got changed, I cannot guarantee they will never do it again in the future. So if you still have problems, or they resurface in future, please contact our Secretary ROY WOOD, (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask him to let me know. At least now putting it right (again) should only take a few minutes once I have the time to go online and redirect the messages yet again.
