Form Wizard Pro - From email address

I've had a couple clients ask how to get their form results to come FROM the person who submitted the form, currently it defaults to the main site email address. This would need to involve taking the value entered into a form field and passing it to the "from" address or "reply to" field of the email that is sent out.

Clients are used to getting an email from someone and pressing reply, if the email address isn't filled in they have to copy/paste and half the time they forget and send the email to themselves.

I know this would involve some checks for a valid email address and a way to assign a form field to use as the form "from" address. Could it cause email relay problems or potential hack attempts, spoofing? Not sure, but there must be a solution as you see this functionality on most forms. Granted on a form builder type of module it's more complex.

Just a possible enhancement to add to the rainy day list.

Re: Form Wizard Pro - From email address

I think this would be a worthwhile addition too. The plain Contact Form module has a checkbox "Use entered email as from address" that lets you do exactly this. Of course, since Form Wizard Pro is a general-purpose form builder without a predefined "your email address" field, Joe will have to incorporate a way to indicate which field is the one that's prompting the user for their email address, and optionally use that as the from address of the email.

Re: Form Wizard Pro - From email address

I was thinking maybe in the form setting area there could be a drop down menu of the field choices that are in the form to select for the "from" address for the form. The first choice could default to something like "site email default" or even pull and display the email address that's set as the site default.
