contact form sender is the owner himself ?

Hi all,

I notice that messages sent through the contact form cannot be answered by simply hitting the "reply" button. If you try to do that, the mailer is addressing back to the owner of the contact, instead of addressing to the sender.

Is it normal ? Is there a way to overcome this behaviour ?
Thanks
Alberto

Hello, i had the same problem and the solution is simple
go to you joomla instalation folder access /libraries/phpmailer/phpmailer.php
edit line 81
/**
* Sets the From email address for the message.
* @var string
*/
public $From = 'leave this blank';

that should do the trick

Kind regards,
lemonthirst

I tried that solution but it still doesn't work form me. I'm on Joomla 2.5.6
I'm using gmail, when I click on "reply", the reply field is populated by my own email address (the one I entered in Joomla administration) not by the sender's email address, which can be found in the "to" field
