I’m not receiving the mail in my gmail account?

Some gmail users have reported issues in receiving emails sent through installs of Jem’s Mail Form in their gmail email account.

The quickest fix for this issue is to open the mail form file in a plain text editor (such as Notepad or Notepad++, NOT “Word” or Microsoft Word) and find this line:

$headers = "From: $yourWebsite <$yourEmail>\r\n";

Change it, very carefully, to:
$headers = "From: $yourWebsite\r\n";

Save and re-upload the contact form, and you should now receive email in your gmail account.
