    This is a requested addon from XFUniverse

    This addon adds the IP address of the sender to the email sent to the admin of the XenForo installation. It also adds the user agent below the IP address to help in detecting browser problems the user may be having.

    The IP and user agent is only added for "Contact Us" requests. It works for guests and registered members, and supports IPv4 and IPv6.

    This addon has 2 phrases, one additional email template, a listener, and an extended ControllerPublic/Misc class.

    All new phrases and templates are prefixed with SolidMean_ipicm_.

    That being said, I cannot make any guarantee of the usefulness of this addon.

    XenForo 1.4.2 now includes the IP address of the sender, so this addon may not be as useful as it one was.

    This add-on helps out when we have new users contact us with issues, yet don't give us much information to go-on in troubleshooting the problem. With this add-on installed, from the very first contact we're able to narrow the focus of our concern towards what might really be causing it.

    Thank you for this. I often receive harassment from banned users via the contact form - it is nice to know what their IP is for abuse tracking purposes and to report these users to their service providers.

    This is actually very useful :) It gets tiresome when folks can't access the site for whatever reason, and we have to ask them what their IP is (and tell them how to find out what it is). Thanks!
