Don't use an input field "Email", use "from" :

 E-Mail: (:input text from size=30:)

This way, the message you receive will appear as sent from the address of the 
visitor. You can press the "Reply" button in your e-mail software to reply to

You shouldn't : this opens the door to spammers. Instead, you can send the 
user to a "successpage" on the wiki.

In the mailform template:
  (:input hidden successpage Main.MessageSent:)

Or, in the mailpost template:
  (:template default successpage=Main.MessageSent:)
