You can setup your Contact Form 7 (CF7) forms so that you can reply to the email address, provided in the form, directly from your inbox.
In this article, we show you how to configure your CF7 Mail Setting so that you can reply to the provided email address directly from your email inbox.
You can reply to the provided email address in the following ways:
Using additional headers
To reply to form submissions in your email application, use
Reply-to: [your name] <[your email]> in the Additional Headers field.
(Use any valid email address on any valid domain)
(Use a valid email address on the domain where your form is hosted)
Site Name - [your-subject]
(Adds extra info to ensure you still have a valid Subject when user does not supply a value)
Reply-to: [your-name] <[your-email]>
Using Reply-to: in the Additional Headers field allows you to safely reply to a form submission.
For less restrictive hosts, another possible solution is to add two additional email headers — Sender and Reply-To – in the Additional headers: field in the Mail section of the CF7 interface, like so:
Reply-To: [your-name] <[your-email]>
These headers will inform the receiving mail server that the email was sent by your website on behalf of the sender.

You can also include the collected email address as a mailto: link in the body of the email as follows:
