In using Chronoforms version 5 on Joomla version 3.6 you encounter an issue where all emails and forms are being sent as Root User localhost, you may need to check on the following:

Joomla global configuration server e-mail settings

  1. Go to mail settings under Global Configuration > Server > Mail Settings
  2. Check that the email field has a valid system email address entered, one that will serve as your website system email for all notifications, alerts and mails.
  3. Enter also a proper sender name, ex: your company or website name
  4. Click on Send Test Mail
  5. Ensure you are receiving this test mail before proceeding to Chronoform troubleshooting. If not received, normally your webhosting provider or developer can assist you with fixing this.
