How do I use a form field as the reply to address?

I've created a form, and I'd like to use the person's email address (which they enter in a field), as the reply address, so that the recipient of the form, can just hit reply to, and it will go to the person's email address.

 

Help!

 

Thanks

Chris

    Hi Chris

     

    The first thing I have to ask is why?

     

    Most email clients automatically open the 'create new message' option when an email address is clicked on, (or reply to is selected) with the email address automatically inserted in the 'To' field.

    Sure, what form script are you currently using?

    What is the name of the form field where the visitor enters their email address?

    If it's a clone of Matts, then it should be named 'email'
