Wonderful plugin. Just a question and not sure if this is the plugin or Wordpress. The form works perfectly – when the form email comes to me the sender is:

is there anyway that it can be changed to Basically customize the sender email to an existing site email address and not wordpress@…?

Rob, this question has been addressed several times, from the FAQs:

Why is the FROM: address hard coded?

The sole reason for the FROM: address now being hard-coded to what is being used by WP as a default address (it used to be configurable in the past) is due to paranoid email servers that refused to relay emails if the the user provided a FROM: address that would only in the slightest deviate from what they'd accept.

However, cforms sets a REPLY-TO: address to which you (or the visitor) can directly respond to.


If it's crucial to you, you can change it in the code, search for wordpress@ in cforms.php
