It could be that person actually entered that and wasn't a user at all.

I'm not positive how you have your form set up to email, but I use this for mine and when I click 'reply' it replies it to the email provided. Feel free to take, modify, and implement as you feel the need:

That doesn't appear to be a part of vB o_0

I'm assuming the contact us page he was talking about is sendmessage.php

I assumed he was talking about his website that is linked in his signature. If you click it and go to his contact page, it shows a form that appears to be custom coded using vBulletin's api.

Although I could easily be completely mistaken. It's what I went off of though, haha.

*EDIT* Also, to note, my Contact Us page has been broken for awhile. Even when it did work it wasn't the most glorious thing in the entire world either. I much prefer a nice custom coded PHP mailer. But that's besides the point. If I was incorrect in assuming that your linked website was the contact for in question, I apologize, postcd.

Yes, correct. Interesting is that when i use vB 4.1.10 Contact Us, reply email is correct, but in 4.2.0, non existing hostname kind of e-mail is used when i reply, not e-mail of the contact us form sender.
Both vbulletins hosted on same server, both on cPanel accounts. E-mail configuration pages in both vBulletins seems same.

Can you please suggest me what to check? Which file is responsible for the PHP code that is used to send e-mail? SO i may try to use old vbuleltin one in newvbuleltin, or what to do?
