Contact form encryption ?

Now this is probably a 'stupid' question and feel a bit of an idiot asking. However, just been asked by another person - they wanted to know re the Contact Form: Does Yola do a lot of encryption in the background so that the email addresses when used are
'''totally and completely hidden by coding''' and '''not able to be found at all'''?
I said yes, but then I had not asked this actual question. So, just to ensure I have said the right thing, could I have comment on this so that I can reiterate to the other party.

Hello JC,

Yes the email address that the forms are sent to is hidden. You will not be able to find it by searching the page or by viewing the page source.

If you need any further assistance or assurance, please let us know.

Thanks Jeremy. Did look at coding and could not find anything, but had at least to ask so that I could truthfully answer to another that I had. Thanks again.

What about the reply received from the Yola form, it shows as coming from Yola, instead of the client's site. (in the "From" section of email displays Yola) Does anybody know how to change that?

Hello Josh,

Only the person who is receiving the form submission will see that it says it's from Yola. So, your visitors will not see this. It is not possible to change this. I'm sorry.
