Error submitting contact form data

Netlify app name:
No build problems
No DNS errors

I have activated the Form Detection on this site, and enabled a reCaptcha for Spam filtering. I attempted to send a test submission with the form, but was met with a message: Sorry , it seems that my mail server is not responding. Please try again later!

Does anyone know why this may be happening?

@matdalton ^ That’s not a Netlify message, and thus must be custom code as part of your project.

So your site has some JavaScript code that is attached to the form and tries to submit it via ajax, and then displays that message when it fails.

You can see that it tries to submit it to contact_me.php, which isn’t a part of the Netlify Forms system, and Netlify doesn’t support runtime PHP, hence why your JavaScript form handling detects the error and displays the message that it does.

You’ll need to fix your code as appropriate, primarily don’t submit to contact_me.php

Thank you so much! That was exactly it, I overlooked it lingering in the group of JS calls. All solved!
