Perch Forms Select List Names and Values in Email

I have a form that has a select list which enables the visitor to select their type of enquiry.

<perch:input type="select" class="form-control" id="enquiry_type" required="true" label="Type of enquiry" options="General enquiry|contactus,Data enquiry|clinicalgovernance,Finance enquiry|finance" allowempty="true" />

The value (after the | ) is the first part of the email address that the enquiry needs to go to. This works really well.

However, in the received email, the 'Type of enquiry' is shown as 'contactus' (understandably, as that is the value!). But in the instance of the email it would be better to show the 'name' eg: General enquiry.

Is there a way this could be done?

I don't believe so, no.
