Add optional "Reply-to" field to Notification e-mail section
This allows the recipient to reply directly to the email address entered into one of the fields of the form. Can't use the "From" address because most SMTP servers don't allow you to spoof the "From" address, but will allow any address in the "Reply-To" field.
Released in Kentico 10
So it is stated that this is released in version 10, and I am running version 10.0.51. However, when I go to the Email Notification section this field is not there.
This is sorely needed. I cannot believe an "enterprise" class CMS lacks such a common and basic feature that sendmail and its predecessors have supported for over a decade! Having this integrated in the system would be so useful and ought to be considered a part of the base functionality of any modern email system. It would eliminate many user complaints about not being able to click reply and the need to make work arounds to compensate.
This is one of my biggest gripes. Staff just automatically click reply in form notification emails to respond to people, no matter how many times you tell them that the form emails don't work that way.
To second Chris' comment, this could be added to Form notifications as well.

We're having to override the Form functionality in Kentico via global events because this functionality doesn't exist.
Hi, Thank you very much for this idea.
We would like to add "reply-to" field into the email template functionality. However email templates are not used everywhere in Kentico. Will it be sufficient or there are other apps without the email template support and where you are sure you are going to miss the "replay-to" field?

This would help with DMARC issues.
