Subject: formtomailpro - use of field data in the subject line


> Hi Charles,
>
> Your script allows you to change the content of the subject line, and that
> is straightforward to customize. Is there a way that the subject line can
> be more dynamic. For example, is there a way to make the contents of the
> email field, name field or other field placed in the form, appear in the
> subject line. This would be both functional for some of our needs and
> illuminating as to whether the form inquiry is from a valid customer or
> potential customer, or just a spammer.

> Spammers are cloaking their real email addresses so that it appears
> generic e.g., joe@gmail.com. Since we have some experience, we would look
> incredulously at the fact we are receiving an email from the very first
> person on the planet with the name joe to sign-up for gmail and suspect
> that the email is being cloaked or the form hacked in some way. One only
> has the subject line to work with then, as a way to see at a glance as to
> whether the email should be opened. Dynamic info the person filling out
> the form provides would be inciteful as to whether the email should be
> opened.
