    Hi! I have successfully used Contact 7 on various sites, where the generated emails from the contact form arrive in my Inbox, with the Sender name & email address being the one from the required field in the contact form.

    I have recently used the plugin on a different site, and the emails that are generated from this contact form show the Admin address of the WordPress install (as specified in the Dashboard.) The coding looks identical.

    What must I configure so that the actual person who has written shows up as the Sender in the headers?

    Maybe other plugin or theme replaces the mail header. Try deactivating all other plugins and switching to the default theme.

    Hi Takayuki!

    Thanks for your reply.

    I think the issue is about the use of “Configure SMTP” plugin. If I remove any details in the last 2 fields (Sender email and Sender name), then Contact 7 works as expected.

    I am still testing but it seems to be working now.

    ===========

    Another question: I installed “Contact Form 7 for different recipients” but cannot work out how to implement this… what I wanted is to offer users of the form to choose different email addresses to send the form.

    Is this the correct plugin? I now cannot see how to uninstall this option either.

    Thanks

    Please open a new thread for another question. The plugin “Contact Form 7 for different recipients” is not a plugin I created and I don’t know that at all.
