    Email address visibility when using/submitting a JotForm

    Asked by Greg on November 06, 2011 at 03:07 PM

    I want to get clarification on how JotForm works.

    Once I create a form, blend it into my site and then a visitor to my site submits info on this form, an email message is created and sent to my email address that contains the contents of what was submitted on the form.

    Am I corrent in assuming that my email address is never available/visible to a visitor to my site when using a JotForm and my email address is only added to the message from your server when the email is generated?

    Also, can I use a reCAPTCHA as a way to have my JotForm submitted?

    Hi Greg

    You are correct an email is sent to you with the submitted data as well as your JotForm account and now body else can see it unless you want them too. and you can add capthchas in the forms.

    Hi Greg,

    We will never show your email address in public , not even to your clients that submits the form, unless you set up an autoresponder with a sender email that's your email address. And yes, you can use reCAPTCHA in your forms as well.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for using JotForm!
