XF 1.4 Email send through contact form uses site's email address

    I'm using SMTP email transport method (with Mandrill) and I've noticed that email send through contact form uses site's email address.

    I was using Mandrill before, but in the mean time I switched to Mailgun and now back to Mandrill. Since then I'm noticing this annoying thin, but all my settings in Mandrill are same as before.

    Do I have to set something in my XF of contact Mandrill?

    Thanks in advance for help.

    Anyone have the same problem? It's really annoying I can't reply directly when someone contacts me through contact form.

    The approach was changed in 1.4 to use a Reply-To header after a lot of complaints about the old approach failing (Sender header). Do you see that header in the raw headers? (If you click reply, is it respected?)

    Oh, that's why.

    Well, I can se like that:

    From: username <myforumemail@test.com>
    Reply-to: username <hisemail@test.com>

    But when I hit reply it shows my forum email and sends to it. (*I'm using Gmail)

    In my tests in Gmail, this does seem to work as I expect. I'm really not sure why it'd work differently for you. Can you click the "show original" link and send it to me (privately)?

    I don't know either. Maybe I have some weird setting in Gmail?

    Ok, original sent privately.

    This happens to me to0. I hit reply and then I send an e-mail to myself. I'm in gmail too.

    I have to copy and paste the e-mail from the e-mail to actually send it to that person.

    Meanwhile I switched to Outlook and no problems there. In Gmail it's still the same issue.
