WordPress is the great and reliable platform to setup website or blog in couple of minutes.
Not only setup, the configuration is quite easy as well.
You can setup the receiving email-id for notification easily in Settings->General->E-mail Address and it’s done.
As soon as you receive your first notification mail from your wordpress installation with sender’s name as “Wordpress” and sender email-id as email@example.com, you start searching for the option to configure sender email-id as firstname.lastname@example.org but no luck.
Actually wordpress does not provide option to configure sender email and it automatically uses “Wordpress” as senders name and email@example.com as sender email-id. If you want to change it, please edit /wp-includes/pluggable.php as below:
Step 1: At line number 320, change as below:
$from_name = 'Support';
Step 2: At line number 336, change as below (change ‘wordpress@’ with your choice):
$from_email = 'support@' . $sitename;
It’s done. You will receive all notifications from firstname.lastname@example.org now onwards.
