    Contact Form Link to this post

    I am using a user defined form that is used as a contact form. Unfortunately when the mail arrives it has no "from" so it goes into junk how do I make the email have a from field.

    Thanks

    That indeed is a problem and I filed it as a bug for the devs (here).

    However, if you're a bit into SS, you could patch (or even better: subclass) UserDefinedForm.php by adding this line:

    $email->setFrom(yourDefaultFrom@emailaddress.com);

    If you decide to patch, it should be placed somewhere around line 390.
    If you decide to subclass, this line is part of the process-function.

    Off course it would be nice if you would be able to replace 'yourDefaultFrom@emailadres.com' by the e-mailadres the user has entered. However, I still don't know how to accomplish that.

    Maybe there is a dev somewhere around who could give us a hint?
