Formstack automatically collects the IP addresses of users submitting forms.  You can find this info on the Submissions tab of your form by clicking on each individual submission.


However, occasionally Formstack customers want to insert these IP addresses in their notification/confirmation emails.  This is possible.  To do this, you would insert this variable into your email: {$_ip_address}


That variable will be replaced with the IP address of the person submitting your form.
