    Go to your Dashboard/General/Options
    and change teh Email address field that is labeled
    "This address is used only for admin purposes"

    yeah - after petits suggestion didn't do what i was expecting, i looked around

    in /wp-includes there is a file "pluggable functions"

    Around Line 165 change:
    "From: wordpress@"
    in the line
    "From: wordpress@". preg_replace('#^www.#', '', strtolower($_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']))

    to whatever email name you want it to come from
    eg From you@ or accounts@
