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.

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:


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 '' 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?
