How to receive your email notifications as if your form submitter sent them

    I am trying to follow the instructions in this thread but am somewhat confused. I also noted a similar thread wherein a Mandrill account was needed:


    But I think the technique used here:


    is more in line with what I need. I created the field label "Email Field for Notification", and then it says to follow this format in the css: .field_id, label_id{display: none;}. It then says to change your text-box field-id and label_id to match the field you just created. When I click on properties, it shows #input_9, {emailField9}. So my question is what exactly is my CSS supposed to look like? It appears the sample is looking for a css class, but the properties has a div id. Any help appreciated.

    Here's the full guide with using Mandrill to set email field as the Sender Email of your form: Set Email Field as the Notification Sender Email Address with Mandrill. This isn't really technical, all you have to do is to register to Mandrill. Get the required credentials and use it to your form.

    For the trick, the codes should be:

    #id_9 { display: none; } - this includes the label and the box.

    I am trying to do this without creating a separate Mandrill account. In the guide on your site last updated 1/10/14

    it mentions nothing about a Mandrill account. I followed the instructions to create a hidden calculated field, and when I send an email the receiver sees just the sender name in the from field, which is the desired result. However, when you open the email the from field then displays the sender's name along with " via". Is there a way to suppress this additional address from displaying?

    The reply to goes back to the correct sender email as well, so if I can somehow suppress the no reply ... portion I would be all set.
