Thread: Forms Sent From "www-data....."

    Default Forms Sent From "www-data....."

    I'd like the resulting form emails to be "From" the actual person who sent the form, but emails generated by the form are ostensibly sent from "www-data....."
    The email of the person who sends in the form is captured within the form itself, but I'm having trouble getting that valid email address to show up in the "From" field.
    I've tried manipulating the SET_SENDER_FROM_EMAIL and SENDMAIL_F_OPTION_LINE, but nothing seems to work.
    Am I missing something simple?
    Thank you very much

    Yes, FormMail does what you want as a standard feature.

    However, you need to call the email address field "email" for this to happen. Likewise, you can get the name of the person into the From by using a field called "realname".

    If you already have fields for this purposes, you can derive "email" and "realname" using this feature:

    Thank you Russell.
    I looked at my form more closely and discovered that the field was "Email".
    After changing it to lower case, then commenting out "<input type="hidden" name="derive_fields" value="email=EmailAddr,realname=FullName" />" the form works perfectly!
    Thanks again for your response and the support of this wonderful form.
