[resolved] [Plugin: cformsII - contact form] "Reply to" e-mail address is ME - not person who filled out form (3 posts)

    When I get the e-mail submitted from one of my visitors, it comes from MY e-mail address.

    This causes an issue since I see the form, hit reply, and the e-mail is sent back to me.

    Is there a way to set it up where the form comes from the e-mail address inputted on the form, that way when I reply - it goes back to that person?

    resolved. gmail doesn't respect the email REPLY-TO header data if this is the case.

    Thanks again Oliver.

    To keep this simple, you want to have a different admin e-mail in WP as compared to the e-mail you are using for the form.

    I set admin e-mail up as admin@domain.com and the form sends e-mail from that address. Then I have set up admin@domain.com to forward e-mail to my GMail account.

    Then I can use "reply to" in GMail.

    GMail does not like it when the PHP Mail script is sending mail to itself (GMail).

    I think that explains it.
