From Address Setter

Configure the ‘From:’ address details for emails sent by WordPress.

What this Plugin Makes Possible

Using the default ‘From:’ details provided by WordPress will cause outbound emails generated by WordPress to be rejected by many service providers, not to mention making it impossible for a user to reply to a WordPress-generated email and receive anything but an immediate bounce. So, for sites which involve anything more than a trivially small number of users, and especially for sites which involve a paid membership component, it’s worth setting the email details to something more sensible and functional. This plugin makes it quick and easy to do exactly that.

How it Works

This plugin communicates with WordPress primarily by tapping into the following:

  • wp_mail_from
  • wp_mail_from_name

Configuration and Flexibility

The plugin provides a simple administrative interface to set the ‘From:’ name and address for emails sent out by WordPress.
