    Configuring reply-to recipient on email notification

    Asked by Jewell on August 02, 2016 at 05:07 PM



    Something has changed in the last several weeks. When reply to a client, the return email is not correct and is listed as me and/or the person whom I hired to create this form. The "From" and "Reply" should be to the person who sent the inquiry


    The website where this form is located can be found here: 



    The jot form can be found here: 


    Here is a correct example:

    This is not always safe in terms of email delivery to populate 'From:' address with user's email address due to DMARC policies. We do not currently provide an option to use user's email as the 'From:' address.

    However, the email notifications can be configured to receive the user's email address in 'Reply-to:' field.

    As far as I can see, the 'Reply-to:' population is working properly on your form #22218730137144.
