The feature that makes this product unique is that it lets you to visually add/modify/delete the form fields using a modern jQuery interface that doesn't require any coding or HTML skills. The process is 100% visual and really fast. You can start with the predefined contact form and add a field to it just by dragging any of the field types into the form.

Form to Mail also includes a friendly field validation (ex: for required fields, emails, numbers, etc...), a captcha image verification to automatically detect and stop spam from spam-bots and the possibility of sending an automatic (auto-reply) email to the user that fills the form, usually with a "thank you" or "confirmation" message.


Basically, the main features are:

  • Allows to create and publish many forms into the website.
  • Visual configuration of the form with a modern form builder.
  • Supports various field types: Single line text, number, email, uploads, form separators, comments, date pickers, paragraph text, check-boxes, multiple-choice radio buttons and drop-down select fields.
  • Allows customizing the contents of the email sent to the website administrators with the data filled by the end-user.
  • Supports multiple destination email addresses.
  • Allows sending an automatic "thank you" / "confirmation" message to the end-user that filled the form.
  • Includes field validation.
  • Includes an easy way to edit the field validation messages, for example to translate them to your preferred language.
  • Includes captcha image verification for preventing spam.
  • Automatic upload processing.
  • Specific tags for each field are available to customize the content of the emails.
  • Ajax verification for the captcha image, so the form isn't refreshed for making that verification and no need to re-type the data.
  • Available as Joomla component, module and plugin, you can insert it anywhere.
It's quite easy to design the form without messing with php at all.
One thing they should consider though... multiple file uploading.
Ease of use
Quite easy to use
Documentation is fairly present on their website about this plugin.
Value for money
Well... humm... that's a bit subjective but it wouldnt hurt lowering both versions a bit.
I used this to: a medic website for people to contact the doctor and send exams to his email.

Pleased with results

Posted on 04 January 2014
I am a new Joomla user (about one week) but was looking for a way to add a form function to my Bitnami/Joomla 3.x site. I had tried a few other extension without great luck. This extension worked on my first try! My base SMTP setting was solid before I started. Watched the video - most of it - and was on my way. So ready to buy the production version.

Looked promising but failed.

The results (look) were not as expected and the worse I couldn't send mails. I contacted them but no reply and no support. I tried twice ans still have no response.

If a form extension doesn't send mails it is worthless.
Owner's reply: Please check if your hosting service requires some specific configuration to send emails from PHP/Joomla websites. The plugin uses the settings specified into the Joomla website to deliver the emails, if your hosting has some specific requirements like a fixed "from" address or a custom "SMTP" server those settings must be configured into the Joomla website.

For further support you can open a support ticket at

Thank you!

Great Extension

Posted on 01 November 2013
Very easy extension to implement and very flexible. Custom feature was provided at reasonable cost as well as quickly. Very pleased!
Pros: well explained with videos and short info and works fine at least in my Joomla. Cons: the free trial version is very limited, it was enough to confirm that extension meets the requirements of my project but a less restricted free version would be nice to allow a more extensive testing process.

Great job!

Thank you very much for such a great forms extension. It does exactly what I expected! Work like a charm. Very easy to configure and at the same time very effective workflow. Didn't have any problems with this extension will use in my future projects.

Thumbs up

Posted on 22 November 2012
I was excited to find this, as its features filled all the needs of a particular project. The form builder is almost excellent, however some field types are missing there, I don't see an option for a file upload field, I may need it for another project, if included I will definitively use it again.
Owner's reply: A new file upload field has been added. There are also other new field types. Thank you for your comments.
