There is no way to change the reply-to email address as it is using the email entered as the DefaultSenderEmailAddress in the notifications settings.
There is a way to achieve your desired behavior of having the user's email in the notifications. You can do this by creating a custom form widget
. To simplify your work you can use Thunder visual studio extension
to create the form widget
The best approach would be to have a HiddenField in the template and set its value to the current user's email (if such exists) on the InitializeControls method.
<%@ Control %>
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI" %>
.EmailTextBox.Value = value.ToString();
.EmailTextBox.Value = GetCurrentSitefinityUserEmail();
ProfileView pv =
Guid currentUserGuid = pv.CurrentUser.UserId;
(currentUserGuid != Guid.Empty)
var user = UserManager.GetManager().GetUser(currentUserGuid);
When the value of the field is an email address it is automatically formatted as a mailto link in the notifications thus allowing for easy replies.
Furthermore you can follow the following blog post to customize the notifications' template if necessary
I am also attaching a complete sample of the custom form widget for reference.
