    Hi,
    I am using WPMU and have activated a plugin wordpress thread comments.
    the plugins provides an option for the commenter to notify them about any reply to their comment via email.
    But when an email is sent.. it shows "WordPress [admin@sitename.com] " in the From Section..
    any solution ????

    It sounds like that you don't have your email address in your WP installation. go to dashboard, setting and under general, check to see if the email address is what you want it to be. Since it's a network installation, you probably need to check all the sites.

  3. That's also a function of the plugin you're using (and probably not WordPress MultiSite at all).

    Which plugin is it? LINK to it please :)

    @shirazdrum i've checked that.. there is an email address... but the email sent to me is displaying some thing like this.
    ftpusername@box123.bluehost.com

    i.e my ftp user name
    and my domain (which is bluehost)..

    P.S
    Most of the Newsletter plugins do have a WordPress tag attached to them...
    i.e,
    Wordpress (admin@sitename.com)

    thanks,

  6. First off, you do NOT need that plugin. Threaded/nested comments are built in to WP and can easily be activated if your theme is at all recently modified.

    If you want a better 'subscribe to comments' plugin, try http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/subscribe-to-comments-reloaded/

    (meanwhile, yes, I am looking at that plugin to see where it's weird)

    Hey Ipstenu,
    I've figured out the issue by doing the tweak below...

    $name ="Site NAme";
    		$email = "donotreply@mysite.com";
                    $from = "From: $name <$email>";

    Thanks For the Help :)
