To customize the content, copy the Shortcode of the field i.e [field id="name"] etc. You can find the Shortcodes under Form Fields > Email (or any other form field) > Advanced. You can also build your own custom email via HTML. See example at the end of the article.

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> </p>
