  • 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:

    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:

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

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

    [text your-subject] </p>

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

    <p>[submit “Senden”]</p>


    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.
