    I am having an issue with Contact Form 7. Everything seems to work fine, except when I receive the message in the email...the sender's address does not show up, instead it my admin name @ my website dot com.

    what am i doing wrong?

    Do you mean the sender's email address?

    Use the sender's email tag as you defined it in the Form area in the upper left side of the Form page. For example:

    <p>Sender Email (required)<br />
        [email* sender-email] </p>

    Then, down below, in the Mail section, you could put this in the "From" field:
    <[sender-email]>

    You can also add it to the Message body area if you want to:
    Sender's Email: [sender-email]

    I've the same problem. @carol7, thanx for your answer, but i can#t see, what I did wrong.

    Maybe this would help:

    Formular:
    <p>Ihre Name (Pflichtfeld)
    [text* your-name] </p>

    <p>Ihre E-Mail (Pflichtfeld)
    [email* your-email] </p>

    <p>Betreff
    [text your-subject] </p>

    <p>Ihre Nachricht
    [textarea your-message] </p>

    <p>[submit "Senden"]</p>

    Mailform:

    to: "my e-mail"
    from: [your name] <[your-email]>

    When I delete the first part, the form sends an email to the sender, not to me.
