Hi stateofmusic,

Hard to say anything without more info. You could just edit the Email Template?

I used the form wizard. The entire code for my form looks like this:
<div class="form_item">
  <div class="form_element cf_heading">
    <h2 class="cf_text">General Inquiries</h2> <hr>
  <div class="cfclear"> </div>

<div class="form_item">
  <div class="form_element cf_textbox">
    <label class="cf_label" style="width: 150px;">Name</label>
    <input class="cf_inputbox required" maxlength="150" size="30" title="" id="text_1" name="Name" type="text" />
  <div class="cfclear"> </div>

<div class="form_item">
  <div class="form_element cf_textbox">
    <label class="cf_label" style="width: 150px;">Phone </label>
    <input class="cf_inputbox" maxlength="150" size="30" title="" id="text_0" name="Phone" type="text" />
  <div class="cfclear"> </div>

<div class="form_item">
  <div class="form_element cf_textbox">
    <label class="cf_label" style="width: 150px;">Email</label>
    <input class="cf_inputbox required validate-email" maxlength="150" size="30" title="" id="text_2" name="Email" type="text" />
  <div class="cfclear"> </div>

<div class="form_item">
  <div class="form_element cf_dropdown">
    <label class="cf_label" style="width: 150px;">State</label>
    <select class="cf_inputbox" id="state" size="1" title=""  name="state">

    <label class="cf_label" style="width: 150px;">Please provide additional details:</label>
    <textarea class="cf_inputbox" rows="3" id="text_6" title="" cols="30" name="details"></textarea>
  <div class="cfclear"> </div>

<div class="form_item">
  <div class="form_element cf_button">
    <input value="Submit" name="button_8" type="submit" />
  <div class="cfclear"> </div>

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi stateofmusic,

My guess would be that that big white space is where the Comments textarea was once up on a time.

As I said before, you'll need to edit the Email Template to remove it from there too.
