Hi,
This seems like something that could be really useful to me but I cant get my page to call it? Am I missing some command somewhere that is needed to call custom plugins?

Thanks

Hi
Thanks for this helpful plugin but it is changing the from email for the user as well not just the administrator email .. how can I keep the " From Email Address " set in the form settings in the email sent to the user ?
