Use form field as sender's email
As of today, all forms are sent by firstname.lastname@example.org. This requires to copy/paste the sender's email when we reply to the message we received through our web site.
It would be much more handy if one of the form fields could be selected as "use this field as sender's email" and receive the email directly from that address. This would allow a very quick reply, just by hitting the REPLY button in any email program.
This should be available, a simple check mark would suffice. The from email is different than the reply-to email.
My clients are complaining too, and I have to tell them I can't do something so simple but I am a web developer? Makes me want to go through the effort to move it to another server, but I should not want to do that since I use your service to make it easy for my non-programmers to help out with updates and designs.
Please just allow this. I can send you an example of how it should work but it is pretty straight forward, the email still comes from design.. the "reply-to" address is the customer's inquiry email so my business owners can simply reply to an email inquiry that comes from their site. Most of them are not great with computers so this seems like a little issue, but it is not.

Sorry, but this is not available yet.
Hopefully, with enough votes, it's priority will rise.
As it currently stands when an email form is filled out and sent to the site owner/administrator the email address that it is sent from is a "no-reply" address.
This means that in order to respond to the email we must manually type or copy and paste the email address included in the sent form into a new message rather than simply hitting the reply button. This becomes a very long and tedius task when 50 emails a day are coming through!
I propose the ability to have the 'sent from' email address mirror that of the one entered into the form during submission. It would save a lot of clients so much time especially those who run restaurants and need to respond to constent booking enquiries etc
Is this something that is available and i am not just seeing it?
