The following settings can be set.

Roles with contact form:
Select the user roles that should get a contact form. A new tab will be added to their profile bar.

Roles that can use contact form:
Select the user roles that can see and use the contact form.  If you want everyone to see the contact form including logged-out visitors leave this field blank.

Enable reCAPTCHA
Choose whether you want to show the Google reCAPTCHA spam blocker field.  This, however, requires the free UM reCAPTCHA plugin to be installed and configured.

Email Options

Enable email
This should most probably be set to Yes for normal behaviour.

Email subject
Type the email subject. The following tags may be used to dynamically insert content: {sitename}, {display_name}, {sender_name}, {sender_email}, {message}.
For example: {sender_name} just messaged you from {sitename}

Email body
Type the text that should appear in the email. The following tags may be used to dynamically insert content: {sitename}, {display_name}, {sender_name}, {sender_email}, {message}.

Additional Options

Members can choose whether the contact form should be displayed on their profile or not. This is set from their own account settings under the Privacy tab. The privacy tab must thus be enabled in Ultimate Member for members to be able to control this.
