Contact Form 7 comes in handy as a really simple but functional contact form plugin for WordPress. There may be an issue for some users that want to activate the autoreply or autoresponder e-mail that will be sent to the customer as a notification about receiving the sent query through the mail form, but the sender’s name may appear as “WordPress”.
The settings allow to use this second e-mail, but the sender’s name has to be entered in a specific way if you’d like to have your desired name as the sender’s name in the recipient’s inbox.
To specify the sender’s name in your Contact Form 7 forms go like this:
- Create your contact form as usual and add it to your site.
- In settings go to Contact -> Contact Forms -> Mail tab
- Scroll down to the section where you can add a tick to Use Mail (2), tick it and a new settings form appears
- See the row From and insert your senders name and e-mail in appropriate format:
Sender’s Name <firstname.lastname@example.org>
