Configure Email2

Email2 is very useful. For example, it could be a confirmation email received by your site’s visitor - immediately after he sent a form on your site.

To create one, go through the same process as above for Email.

Note: In the ‘To’ field you should input the shortcode located in the advanced tab of the email field [field id="email"].

Tip: You can personalize the confirmation email by using the submitter’s first name (‘Howdy [field id="name"]’).

Here there is an example how to build the entire email content using HTML:

<p>
     <p>You got a new message!</p>
</p>
<p>
     <p>Username: [field id="name"]<br />
</p>
<p>
     <p>Email:  [field id="email"]<br />
</p>
<p>
     <p>Phone:  [field id="tel"]<br />
</p>
<p>
     <p>Message: [field id="message"]</p>
</p>
<p>
     <p>Don’t forget to call them back soon :) </p>
