Checking Contact Form message has been received

The processing of the messages can take up to an hour to be sent to you after submitting with the 'Send Message' button

Check that the message hasn't been sent to a 'Junk', 'Spam' or 'Trash' folder if you don't see the message within an hour of sending.

You may also want to set a 'Mail Rule' to ensure that any messages sent via the Contact Form are located in the correct folder within your email Inbox.

The email address the message will be sent from is:

no-reply@portfoliomail.com

Because all email applications work differently we are unable to provide a guide on how to configure a Mail Rule for you.

Reach us online at our live chat or via our email info@format.com if you have any more questions. We’re happy to help!
