    Hi,

    I've tried to put "Sender Name <sender@example.com>" with my email into the from field (2nd email) but I don't have my name appearing, only "sender name". How can I change that?

    Thanks a lot

    Hmmm,

    I originally found your post because my auto response kept saying it was from "WordPress", but showing my email i.e. timmy@superdomain.net.

    I followed your format exactly, with "John Doe <john@insundry.com>" and it worked perfectly.

    What I noticed was that in Gmail, because I had already received an auto response email just prior to making the change, it kept the name "WordPress." I deleted the two emails and sent another inquiry through. Problem solved. It reads from "John Doe" now.

    If you are using Gmail, try deleting the auto response emails you have received so far and do another test.

    Hope this helps!

    Jason
