When I receive an email from someone who tries to contact me via the forum contact page, the from address is always my own webmaster email address and only in the content does it show the sender's email. Now the problem is that, many times I have hit the reply button in my email client and sent replies to myself. Couldn't we set it up so sender email shows up in the from address when the email is received?
By the way, I use Google Apps to receive and send these emails. Is that why this is happening?
I have attached this screenshot for your reference:
Hi Brogan, thank you for your reply. I am a little curious as to why local php standard method is better than Google SMTP. Is it the sending limits or are there other reasons? Do you recommend third party SMTP providers to send usual forum emails?
The reason why I am asking you is because when I change these email settings, I want to get it right this time. I want my forum emails to be 100% deliverable and have no issues at all in future. Thank you in advance.
