This plugin allows you to set the email address and name used for emails sent by WordPress by setting the From: header.
It is an updated and fully re-worked version of the WP Mail From plugin by Tristan Aston and now works with the latest versions of WordPress.
- Adds a “Mail From” section in the “Settings” menu.
- The plugin uses the filter hooks
- The priority for the hooks is set to 1 to allow for other plugins that may hook these with the default priority of 10 to override this plugin.
Danish translation by Frederik Svarre (www.fslab.dk)
Why does the From address still show as the default or show up as ‘sent on behalf of’ the default address?
Possibly your mail server has added a Sender: header or is configured to always set the envelope sender to the user calling it.
Why are emails not being sent?
Some hosts may refuse to relay mail from an unknown domain. See https://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5007 for more details.
