Hi all,

Go easy on me - total noob here!

I need to create a form and be able to specify a 'from' email address for when it is received. Is this possible? Can anyone give me a few pointers?

Many thanks

Your question doesn't actually make sense. Forms are "received" by the script that processes them, and no "From address" is involved. If you have a script which sends the form results to you by email, and you want to change the "From" address on this email, then you need to modify the script.

If you post the script it should be easy to see how to change it.

Usually forms contain a "From" field where the user can enter an email address (not necessarily his own).
