frontpage 2002 forms - use visitor's email as sender's address

I created a form that includes a request for my visitor's email address. The
form send the info to me by email. FrontpageHelp says that if I want my
visitor's email address to be the sender's address (so that I can send an
auto response) I'm supposted to check the reply-to-line box (which I did),
then in the reply-to-line box, type the name of the form field. I named my
form field Email - so I typed Email in the box. I can't get my visitor's
name to appear as the sender's name. The auto response goes instead to the
email address that is on file for me at GoDaddy. How can I get this to work?

Sounds like you have the process down for Reply to:

This however won't be the from address. This is always a constant address
because the form is actually being sent by the server, not the form user.
Once you open the email, the Reply to should be the email address provided by
the user.

Thanks for your answer. My aim is to have an automatic response sent to the
sender so that I don't have to open the email and manually send an email
response to them. How can I do that? (I thought Reply to was for that
purpose...to change the from address. What does Reply to do?)

You could use the confirmation page for that purpose instead of
sending an email --

You web host would have to configure the auto-responder to use the Reply-To address from your form.
