Hi Scott,

In this list there is already a topic "new form element".
I quote Francois Suter's answer(s):

There's a static TypoScript file coming with the new form extension. Make sure 
to include it *after* css_styled_content. Also make sure that you have no 
customizations of the old mailform object in your TypoScript, that may override 
the new TS from "form".

And also:

Hi Matt,

This is done by pointing to the email field in the TypoScript definition of the 

postProcessor {
    1 = mail
    1 {
        recipientEmail = [email protected]
        senderNameField = name
        senderEmailField = email

That's unfortunately not possible. I stumbled on this the other day. I consider 
this a bug, but had no opportunity to submit a patch for it.

No idea there, sorry.


Some more hints:
- At last I noticed that when you open an existing form in the wizard, you'll 
need a little patience.

- There's a good manual in the extension folder. 

Kind regards,
