    Autoresponder: Dynamically populating Reply-To field with user provided email

    Asked by cobaltwarrior on March 22, 2017 at 12:09 PM

    I do not mind the via jotmails.com tag in gmail, however I would like to somehow make this seem like an organic referral email coming from my target's customer.

    I understand how to change the reply-to address to 1 static option, however I would like this to be dynamic and change with each submission automatically to the "From:"

    So is there a way to make the "From:" email somehow appear as the "Reply-to:" email address (even with via jotform) when the recipient receives this email in their inbox?

    This is a re-post of a comment on How to Add a Custom Sender Address to an Email Alert

    Do you want to send the emails with custom From: address, or receive them with user's email address populated into the From: field?

    I want them to arrive at the recipient's inbox (the "To:" add.) as if mailed by the email add. in the "From:" field. So they can reply-to that person for example and not to the static no-reply@jotform.com or another static custom email address.

    Basically want it to behave as a regular email exchange between 2 parties even though it's going through a 3rd party server and system. Is this possible?

    Yes, you can populate the Reply-to Email field dynamically. Please adjust your Autoresponder settings, the correct {tag} for your From field is {from}.

    Thank you.
