Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Getting enquirer’s name on email

  • I have a simple enquiry form set up, and I receive an email to my inbox for any submissions I get. The emails show as being sent from my address, not theirs. That’s fine, I think that’s how it has to be as I’m using WP mail SMTP. BUT it’s also my name that’s showing as the sender in my inbox as well, which makes scanning through for emails tedious.
    The from field is set as

    [your-name] <>

    But still it shows my name instead of theirs. Is there a way of fixing this so I can see the name of who submitted the form in my inbox?
