    The reason you are seeing the emails being sent from is because your admin email does not match the domain that the form is being sent from. So, if you have a address as your admin email, it will build a local email. This mirrors behavior from within WordPress itself to send certain emails.

    To solve this, you can either:

    1. Set the admin email to one that matches your domain
    2. Use the WP Mail SMTP plugin to override the internal wp_mail() settings.

    I’d recommend using WP Mail SMTP because it helps solve a lot of other issues in addition to you not having to change your admin email.

    As @jmichno was stating above, the REPLY TO no longer works with WP 3.5. I was using “Configure SMTP” before. I also tried “WP Mail SMTP” and it is not working there. I am using other Contact Modules using the above SMTP plugins and they are working fine with the Reply To.

    When I place the “Contact Email” in the “User’s E-mail (optional)” field in the Form Builder, it seems to ignore it. It use to use this when send out via GMail “on behalf of”. So when I would reply it would go to the contact and not to our Admin email in WordPress.

    Again my Contact Form DB module is working correctly with “Configure SMTP” and when I try “WP Mail SMTP”, so I know it has something to do with the Visual Form Builder plugin. A speedy fix would be greatly appreciated as our emails are now being replied to incorrectly.

    Thanks! Contact me if you need more information.

    Matthew – Any update on this issue?

    Hey Larry,

    I actually released an update last night that included the optional Reply-To header. Let me know if that solves the issue on your host.

    Thanks Matt! The update works great! I definitely recommend this plugin to everyone.

    I followed the steps above but i still get the same thing. wordpress@ on behalf of… etc… I am up-to-date with updates… i am using VFB pro

    I have looked at the headers in a few emails and it shows

    also this.. PHPMailer 5.2.1 (

    it is important that my form-fillers do not see this… and they will if they read headers.
