Allows you to configure the default email address and name used for emails sent by WordPress.

Either install via the WordPress admin plugin installer or...

  1. Unzip wp-mailfrom-ii.zip in the /wp-content/plugins/ directory, making sure the folder is called wp-mailfrom-ii.
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  3. Visit the admin settings page Settings > Mail From and save your preferred name and email address.

Upgrading from the old WP Mail From plugin

This version is pretty much a complete re-write, fixes loads of bugs and works with the most recent versions of WordPress.

If upgrading from the WP Mail From plugin your current name an email settings should be copied across but please check. To upgrade simply activate this plugin then deactivate the old WP Mail From plugin.

Option naming conventions have changed in this version of the plugin. If you accessed either of the options directly for any reason you will need to re-factor you code as support for the old options will be removed in a future version.

The old options could be retrieved as follows:

get_option( 'site_mail_from_name' );
get_option( 'site_mail_from_email' );

You should now use:

get_option( 'wp_mailfrom_name' );
get_option( 'wp_mailfrom_email' );
