    Hi, I want to customise the email that the store owner will receive when someone contact them via lead capture form. At the moment I am getting Wordpress as a sender name and [email protected] as a senders email. I would like to have an actual person's (who filled the form) name as senders name and their email as a sender's email set up. Can you help me please? Where can this be edited?
    Thank you

    Hello,

    Greetings from InkThemes!

    Please follow the screenshot given below.

    leadcapture_mail.png

    Code is as follow..
    Code:
     /* auto-detect the server so you only have to enter the front/from half of the email address, including the @ sign */
     
    function xyz_filter_wp_mail_from($email){
     
    /* start of code lifted from wordpress core, at http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/3.4/wp-includes/pluggable.php */
     
    $sitename = strtolower( $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] );
     
    if ( substr( $sitename, 0, 4 ) == 'www.' ) { 
      $sitename = substr( $sitename, 4 ); 
    }
     
    /* end of code lifted from wordpress core */
     
    $myfront = "[email protected]";
    $myback = $sitename;
    $myfrom = $myfront . $myback;
    return $myfrom;
    }
     
    add_filter("wp_mail_from", "xyz_filter_wp_mail_from");
    For your information, I am using "WP-Editor" plugin to edit files.

    You can also download and use it from the link https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-editor/.

    After activating this plugin, you will get the same screen as shown in the screenshot.

    Hope it will resolve your issue

    Do let me know if you need more assistance,

    Thanks & Regards!

    Hi Priyanka,
    I followed the instructions and added the code and changed [email protected] , which updated the email address upon lead form receipt, but the sender name is still coming as WordPress- see the file attached. I would like it to say the site name instead, what can I edit to achieve it? Thanks

    I tried to follow this and got confused at Step 3. I just sent an email. All my e-mails from this form is going to SPAM WordPress and arriving like this [email protected] via gator3139.hostgator.com

    That's actually because of your server email settings. You can contact your host provider in this regard.

    Email Lead Form.jpg

    I just got off the phone with Hostgator, after an hour, and they say it's the plugin.

    The issue is that when someone fills out the form, it is being sent to me in this way-> [email protected]> via gator3139.hostgator.com

    Why can't it be like Contact 7 Form. You can pick the e-mail and it's fine. All of my customers leads are going to spam and on Yahoo they don't get sent at all.

    I need help, I was on the phone with the hosting company for an hour and they could not solve it.

    For your information, the theme uses default mailing feature provided via WordPress and that's why you are getting the emails like this.

    You can try using some other email say try to use your Gmail id there. I hope that will work.

    Contact form 7 has it's own customized email template so it works differently.

    Warm Regards!
