How to set up the Header of your email notifications?

When editing your form’s Notifications, you can customize the way email notifications arrive in your Inbox after each form submission. You can edit aspects such as the email address and name associated with the sender, the subject of the message, as well as the content itself.

First things first, at Send to you will notice that My email appears. This is the email address associated with your 123 Form Builder account. To add another email recipient, simply type it in. To send emails to your form users, click on the plus sign and select an email field from the form.

The second option, From Email, refers to the email associated with the sender. We recommend choosing our default email address ( or enable the SMTP option (send emails through your own email server). You can also choose (to simply remove any reference to our domain) or configure a custom domain to be the sender.

Notifications From Email

The option Reply-to Email sets the recipient to whom the message is sent if you reply to the email notification.

Subject refers to the title of the email, as seen in the example below. You can either add a custom text, the input of a form field, or both.

Example: Inquiry John Doe. Inquiry is typed and John Doe is the input provided by the user in the Name field, which is included in the message subject. Therefore, if another submission is made with the name Ana Baldwin, then the message subject will be Inquiry Ana Baldwin. Use the dropdown on the right to include a field in the message subject from the left. Once the field is selected, it will be automatically included in the message subject as a tag.
