    Email Notification: Sent from user's email address.

    Asked by Homecomp on April 27, 2015 at 06:16 AM


          I created a Jotform for our Computer Club on our Club website. I Have just noticed that when people send the form out it comes from that person but using my email address. Is there a way of it being sent from the senders email address.

    I have obviously done something wrong.


    Any Help would be appriciated.

    Hi All,

                 I think I have sorted this problem out.

    On the re-email section I had my email address shown. I have altered it to show - noreply@jotform.com


    I am still at a loss though as I wanted to show the email address that the sender was using not just - noreply@jotfor,.com


    Any Ideas please.

    If I understood correctly your request, you wish the email notification to be sent from the user's email. 

    Unfortunately it is not possible. As an alternative you can change the sender's name to to display the email field, but it will still be sent from one of the emails, like noreply@jotform.com. The only difference is that it will display the user's email as his name:

    Hi Mike,

                   Yes I altered the name field to email address, and I did a test run and it came up with my email address, I have yet to get some one else to trial it, but as far as I can see it works of.

    Please thank Carina for her help.
