Summary of Features

Eight configurable fields: you configure the labels and sizes
"From" and "Subject" fields appear automatically
"From" field is checked to make sure it's a valid email address (using regex, not a realtime check)
"Reply-To" header can be activated
Fields 1 - 8 can be set to "Active," "Required," "Hidden", or "Inactive" in the module configuration, as needed
Hidden fields will automatically appear in the email
Body of email message contains labels + user input data for active and hidden fields
Any of the 8 fields can be normal (text), textarea, radio buttons, checkboxes or dropdown (select)
You can configure a recipient of the submitted email form plus optional CC and/or BCC
Optional "Send Copy to Me" field or automatic user copy
You can set the space between the labels and the input fields
You can specify an optional redirect URL if the form is submitted successfully
Info in form fields can be either reset or retained after form submission
Includes a field to upload an email file attachment
Email attachments can be filtered by filename extension
Max length of each field can be set (thanks to Rui Castro Lobo!)

All configuration is done by module manager: no complicated components to install!
All fields can be either normal (text), textarea, checkboxes, radio buttons, or select.
New in 18.5:
* Added check to see if CAPTCHA URL has a trailing "/"; hard-coded the "/" if not
* Modified German translation thanks to Janis Blechert
* If email checking is disabled, the default value in the "from" field will be used
* An HTML5 "email" type field is now used for the "from" field
* Added HTML5 "placeholder" attribute so that default values are displayed
Couldn't ask for a better written extension or better product support!
It would be nice to be able to have two forms going to two separate emails in the same article, though.
Have a look at the instructions for putting 2 forms into one article. Requires at least version 1.7.08, although the latest version is recommended.
Is it possible to automatically upgrade to the latest version 1.7.09 through Update section of admin control panel?
I don't want to disturb existing settings by re-installing the extension.
Really simple and awesome module to use for contact form.
But it would be even better if there was ability to disable the "subject" field, that there would be same options as for custom fields (Field 1, Field 2 etc.).
It would also be great if there was ability to integrate with ReCaptcha, like some new extra field.
Thanks for the suggestions. Others have asked for this as well. A bit short on time right now but I'll put this on my list!
Also, is there a way to modify positions of subject/email/name etc?
As of version 1.7.01 of the module, as long as you configre a CSS class for the module, all elements of the form will have a CSS class assigned to them. Please see the following article:
