With it’s built-in contact component, adding an e-mail form to your Joomla website is a very easy process. You may create multiple categories of contacts, each with multiple contacts themselves. This tutorial is a walkthrough of how to put together a new contact.

One thing to do is login on the Joomla backend. That is at yourjoomlasite.com/administrator.

The first step with this process will be to put in a new category to place our contacts in. Categories all you to group teams of contacts so you can have forms for those members of your sales team, or all of your managers. First go to Components > Contacts > Categories. The screen explains an overview of any categories that already exist. By default there will be one category named “Contacts”. You’ll want to click the New button within the upper right corner in the screen to create a new category. You will have a form you’ll need to complete. You can limit who is able to view this category by choosing the level in the Access Level select box. You can set an image to exhibit for the category if you’d like. When you have everything setup you’ll be able to click the Save button.

If you want to block certain emails or text this can be done under the email parameters. This is extremely useful for controlling contact page spam.
