  • Additional Headers
    !(configuration error)
 Invalid mailbox syntax is used in the Reply-To field.

    Hello

    Code is like Martian hieroglpphics for me, so clearly I’m doing something wrong….

    I am trying to configure my contact form according to instructions from the Jetpack Akismet folks, and from what I am reading on the Contact Form 7 Spam Filtering with Akismet
    (https://contactform7.com/spam-filtering-with-akismet/)

    Currently, on my form, the code for the field that accepts the email address of the sender is
    <p>Email (required)<br />
    [email* Email] </p>

    and on the Mail tab under Additional Headers it reads
    Reply-To: [Email]

    This works, but a lot of spam is getting through. The Contact Form 7 Spam Filtering with Akismet page says to add
    akismet:author_email
    to the field instead; however when I do that, the Mail tab shows an error, saying:

    Additional Headers
    !(configuration error)
 Invalid mailbox syntax is used in the Reply-To field.

    What’s wrong? Do I need to change the Additional Headers field? To what?

    Thanks.
