Hi guys.

Currently have 3 websites and I'm using the foxyform forms (free online emailing form, works well).

Only thing is if someone emails me I don't know which site it came from.

Are there any other online form services that I can add a little note to so I can identify the site as well?

Thanks,
Chris

If you have 3 sites, I presume you have 3 domain names? If so, in the domain registrar's control panel for each, you should be able to create a "mail forward" for each. Say your actual mail is chris@gmail.com (external link). You create a forward for chris@chrisgilesphotog​raphy.co.uk (external link) that forwards to chris@gmail.com (external link), and other similar forwards for the other two domains, to your gmail account. Then set up your three forms to send to those forwarding addresses rather than direct to your gmail account. You'll still get all the mails to gmail, but you'll be able to see what address the sender used (ie it will be chrs@chrisgilesphotogr​aphy.co.uk (external link) or whatever) and you can then configure your mail client to allow return email from those three different domains, sort incoming emails into different folders, etc.

Can you add "hidden" fields to those forms? I know if you write your own HTML code for a form, you can have hidden fields. So you could have a "source" field and set it to each website. Then when you receive the email, you'll see the source field.
