Email will forward but not alias; need to change “from” field for wedding RSVPs


Mar 14, 2003
I need to send results from RSVP forms on customer sites to my customer's email but when I do the “from” field shows it is from [email protected] I find that to be rather unprofessional and would like to have the response emails to be from [email protected] instead. I set up the form to go to [email protected] and then created a forward on the cpanel to send replies to the customer email addresses from [email protected] but the “from” field still shows it to be from [email protected]

If anyone can give some help on how I might change this it would be greatly appreciated. I’m setting this up for clients today and could use some input as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance!!!

Depends on what you are using to send the emails. Most scripting languages that let you send email also let you alter the headers being sent out - this is where you would change this. You would simply need to add the From: and Reply-To: headers with the email address you want to show the email as from.
