I have a simple contactform on my site, powered by Uniform.
As you can see in the screenshot above (sorry, no inline-code example) the form-messages are send to
firstname.lastname@example.org and the form-messages are send by
I also have a field
When I receive a message, the raw headers are something like this;
###Question One - reply to the sender in person, not the server###
The problem is… when I hit “reply” in Thunderbird or Outlook (web-client, not Outlook Express the software suite) I reply to
email@example.com because that’s the sender of the mail.
Of course, this is (technically) good behaviour, but is there any option I can reply direct to the address as mentioned in the
Like you can see in the screenshots above (Thunderbird / Outlook web), the message goes straight to
firstname.lastname@example.org (while there is a
reply-to field, containing the right address… but both Outlook and Thunderbird do not obey this rule.
…this makes replying to an incoming email very hard, when you’ve a lot of communicating through your site.
###Update - maybe a solution?###
When I enter a non-existing email-address for the
sender, both Thunderbird and Outlook do reply at the real sender (the person) and not the
sender as defined in the code.
Maybe this is default behavior for those clients?
email@example.com does reply to that address, but
firstname.lastname@example.org does reply to the person who send the contact-message…
sender (required) - The email address used for the from field of the email that will be sent. This should be the address of your website, e.g. email@example.com. Some spam filters will cause problems if they discover an email with a from field that doesn’t match the server of it’s origin.

###Question Two - send cc: or bcc: with a single action###
Does the plugin by any change allow
cc: and / or
bcc: settings? I tried all options, even recipients separated by comma’s and also a double array with “email sent” actions, but nothing did work… only one message was delivered at a time.
(I can send a
cc: using two
'actions' => array(array('_action' => 'email' codes, but than the confirmation-message is also shown twice… which looks… weird?)
###Question Three - get the name of the person as the sender###
Even I created a
<input type="text" name="name" id="name" value=""> field, the real persons name (let’s say John Doo) is never mentioned as the sender (it only says sender :
firstname.lastname@example.org) - but not the real persons name.
If you add a name=“name” field, the content will be used for the name of the sender in addition to the email address in the email header.
