Ah, that was easy. Now I better understand how PmForm configuration
works. I prefer hidden "from" address so I chose second solution.
Two more comments:
1. When I hit Preview on a page with mailform, e-mail text (textarea)
is pre-loaded by page source text. You can reproduce it at
http://www.pmwiki.org/pmform/PmForm/MailForm. It's not a big problem
but it's confusing.
2. (:messages:) directive is part of mailform template. When someting
goes wrong one could easily overlook error messages, especially on
long pages where mailform is at the bottom. So I deleted (:messages:)
from template and put it at the beginning of every page where mailform
is used. My question is: Can I put (:messages:) to AllGroupHeader? Can
it cause any problem on pages where (:messages:) have no use? Or,
could PmWiki show such messages at the top of page by default, i.e.
without the need to explictly use (:messages:) directive?
