    Default Avoiding the Junk Mailbox

    I have formmail on a client's site, and each inquiry comes into their junk box. Is there a way to force the "From" header in the incoming mail to something my client's mail program will always recognize as valid mail (rather than just the sender's e-mail address, which—until manually approved on their end—seems to be the reason they end up in junk)?

    Hi,

    Yes, but it's often less useful to receive the emails this way.

    Use "FromAddr" in "mail_options": http://www.tectite.com/fmdoc/creating_forms.php

    Then, if you want to be able to reply to the person who submitted the form, you can derive "replyto" from "email": http://www.tectite.com/fmhowto/derived.php

    Thanks. The "FromAddr" part makes sense, but I don't find on the second linked page where to make replyto derive from "email". Can you clarify a bit more?

    Hi,

    Here's how you'd do the derive fields:
    HTML Code:
    <input type="hidden" name="derive_fields"
     value="replyto=email" />
    That's assuming you have a field called "email" which the user fills in.

    Ah...I see now...that one field takes care of everything. I appreciate it!
