Hi Brenda,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. I've looked at your contact form on your website, and I saw you did not put in the complete email address. I have since corrected the issue and sent a test. Please let me know, if you get the test message I sent. Yes, you must use SMTP authentication. Without authentication anyone could send emails. There should be no reason to bypass authentication, as I have since corrected the issue in your script.

I hope this helps! If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
