How to fix Prestashop error "an error occurred while sending the message" ?

Try the following fixes to resolve this error.

Sometimes, it is possible that the latest version of the theme is available, but the site is still using an older one. 

As this error is generally caused by the theme incompatible with the latest version of Prestashop, a popular solution is to upgrade the version of the theme.

In addition, we may also need to contact the theme developer if the upgrade doesn't fix the error.

2. Update the contactform.tpl file

Another solution, that can fix the error is to update the theme file that handles forms. In this case, our Engineers edit the "/THEME/modules/contactform/views/templates/widget/contactform.tpl", locate the button that is responsible for submitting the form and add the following code:

<input type = "text" name = "url" value = "" />
<input type = "hidden" name = "token" value = "{$ token}" />

3. Clear Cache

Sometimes, you may find that the error persists even after going through all the above steps. We find that it just requires the cache to be cleared from the Prestashop admin panel, for the error to disappear.

i. First, log into Prestashop admin panel. 

ii. Then, navigate to Advanced Parameters > Performance. 

iii. Now, set Force compile to Yes, disable Cache and save changes. 

iv. Finally, go to your front-office and refresh the store page.
