Form Submission "from"


Hi, I am setting up a form and I want the email of the person who submitted the form to be in the from line in the email instead of

what is the proper way to set this up? is it in the form as a hidden field or is it in the perl script?



What form to mail script are you using?


If you’re using the Dreamhost formmail script, you just have to designate one of the fields in the form as ‘email’ and it will use that as the ‘from’ address.


I am having the same issue
I am using the form mail from dreamhost.
I have specified email and realname but still get the email
coming from
