[resolved] Changing "from" email address for user registration (5 posts)

    I searched the forum for a answer to this question, but I couldn't find any.

    Everytime a new user register on my blog, he receives an email asking him to confirm the registration and then another one telling the registration was successful. I thought this email would be sent by the admin email, but it isn't. Actually, it is sent by a strange email (something@box465.bluehost.com). Obviously, my blog host is Bluehost, but I would like my readers to view a friendlier email address in the from field.

    I noted that emails sent from my backup plugin come from this same email address.

    How can I change that? Is is a setting at WordPress admin panel or on my server itself?

    Thanks,
    Rafael Perrone

    Ok, found it.

    You have to edit the /wp-includes/pluggable.php file.

    I too would like to know how it was changed! I wish people would post HOW they changed the file!
