How to set up PloneFormGen mailer to send a thank you email to the form submitter

By default, when you create a new PloneFormGen form ("form folder"), the new form contains an email address field (with ID "replyto").  You set up the form's mailer to send a thank you email by doing the following:

  • Edit the mailer adapter
  • Leave the Default field set blank (name and email address of recipient)
  • In the Addressing field set, choose "Your email address" as the field from which the recipient's email address will be chosen.
  • Also in the Addressing field set, use the CC and/or BCC fields to have the mailer send a copy to someone else, ideally the form owner, so you have a record of the thank you emails that went out.

 

Here is a screen shot of what that might look like, for the initial Default field set and the Addressing field set:
