How to change the default WordPress email From name and address PDF Print E-mail
Written by Tom   

There two ways you can change the from email name and address

 

1st method:

Install a WordPress plugin, for example: Change WP eMail


2nd method (this is my preferred method):

Goto the mail wordpress site folder

Find the pluggable.php  located in wp-includes/pluggable.php

Edit pluggable.php file as follows:

look for lines around  320

$from_name = 'WordPress';

change ‘WordPress’ to ‘your name or 'YOUR SITE'

look for lines around 336

$from_email = 'wordpress@' . $sitename;

change ‘wordpress@’ to ‘yourname@’

 

That should the trick.
