Form module email field

Reported by Imran | March 5th, 2012 @ 05:22 PM

Create a form and add a text field with the identifier 'email'. Make the form's settings email the submission to a certain user. Try submitting the form, it will use the 'email' field as the from address to send the email and you'll get a whole bunch of errors if you enable the DEV and SMTP_DEV variables. Basically the form's $_POST['email'] variable overrides the SMTP_FROMADDRESS variable. I'm not sure why this would be but it could be potentially dangerous.

    I see, then note that if the field is optional and you leave it blank, said errors occur.
