In the past we were able to put a user email address in the From field. But now we get the message: " this email address does not belong to the same domain as". I know you should use ie. [email protected]

Because of an internal develop emailprogram I need to have the user email address in the From field. The internal develop email program has some features which depends on the From field in a email message.

Is there a way i can trick CF7 so it use the / overwrites the "this email address does not belong to the same domain" warning? Jus like < CF 3.1

Hope you get my question

  • Why does the warning bother you? As far as I know CF7 will still try to send out the mails, it is just a warning after all

You can trick CF7 by enter a valid email address [email protected] and redirect all mails to that custom email address [email protected].


In the end that warning should not harm.

It's more a Spam issue: If the recipient of the email rates the email as spam because it comes from a different server than the sender's address says.

  • tx for your input. The recipient is our own server, we just use a CRM which uses the From field to arrange customer cards

  • if your own server is fine with that custom email address. it will work. the warning is targeting email sending to the public, i would say. Nov 15, 2018 at 21:13
