[Plugin: Contact Form 7] reply-to address does not work (10 posts)

    When I receive email via the contact form 7, the reply-to address is that of myself, and not the email address of the person who contacted me. The settings in CF7 are as follows:

    Mail
    To: inge@xx.yy
    From: [your-name] <[your-email]>
    Subject: [your-subject]

    The way it is received in Gmail is:
    From: name of the writer <inge@xx.yy>

    Hence, replying results in a message to my own address, and not to the address of the sender. How can this be changed?

    The answer would seem to be to implement the X-Reply-To: header, but it doesn't seem to work

    I tried this myself and I am also wondering what they solution is. I think in part it's because the <return-path> header is overriding it, but I am not a expert on this subject.

    Anyone else have luck with this?

    oh frak, it's not X-Reply-to: it's just Reply-To: (I was confusing PHP and ASP). I tried this and it works, just add:

    Reply-To: [your-name] <[your-email]>

    into the Additional Headers.

    Sounds promising, but it didn't work. The message now shows in its header what the correct reply-to address is, but when replying to the message in gmail, the 'from' address (and not the reply-to address) is used.

    from: name of the writer <inge@xx.yy>
    reply-to: name of the writer <emailaddresswriter@xx.yy>

    I installed the latest build (with jquery 1.4 fix) but I can't get the from field to work properly either.

    I can set the FROM field to anything I want, but the e-mail I'm receiving includes this recipient name:

    from: BLOGNAME <adminusername@mywebsiteurl.com>

    It's really weird. How can I change it ?!

    Bumping this thread since I'm having the same problem. Anyone figured it out?

    If it helps, GCorwin's solution works here.

    I just read on http://wordpress.org/support/topic/276107?replies=35 that another plugin (such as the mailfrom-plugin) might overwrite the reply-to address. Disabling such a plugin didn't solve the problem for me, but it might help for others.
