    I use Joomla 3.6.5 and php 7, and the emails are not going out over contact and under "configuration/system" the test mail also says "Could not instantiate mail function."
    Please test it on the website in the German Contact…

    What the reason? Can you help me?
    Regards Klaus

    This is a Joomla related issue and not template related, it seems your server cannot send emails using phpmailer, best solution in such cases is to use the SMTP protocol , you should ask your hosting provider details to set your SMTP mailer ( SMTP username and password ) in Global configuration – Server Tab.
