'From' Name and Address for Comments (1 post)

    It appears that when someone enters a comment, and a notification e-mail is sent to the administrator, that the "From:" name is set to the name the commenter enters in the form. The "From:" e-mail address is set to the e-mail address they enter. However, my perspective is that these e-mails are actually coming from my WordPress program, not the commenter. Therefore, when I see a person's name at the top of the e-mail, it's a little confusing (even though the "Subject" line below it has been customized by me to show "New Comment."). It seems to make more sense for the notification e-mail to come from WordPress, and not the commenter. Could this be revised?
