    Hi, I like the plugin and it works well. Only one small glitch. The emails all get sent to the correct email addresses but the email headers all read:

    From: admin <admin@mysite.com>
    Date: Wed, Apr 10, 2013 at 9:15 AM
    Subject: Test Message
    To: admin@mysite.com, admin <admin@mysite.com>

    Is it just showing the first in the group? Can this be changed?

    I am not sure I understand your question but I will guess as to what you are asking.

    I think you are asking why the "To:" address doesn't show all of recipients. When you select more than one recipient, the list of email addresses who receive the email are added to the BCC email header.

    Here is what a header looks like when I select four users:

    From: "Development Admin" <golufk_1353242723_per@gmail.com>
    Return-Path: <hope@solo.com>
    Reply-To: "Development Admin" <golufk_1353242723_per@gmail.com>
    X-Mailer: PHP5.3.13
    MIME-Version: 1.0
    Content-Type: text/html; charset="UTF-8"
    To: "Development Admin" <golufk_1353242723_per@gmail.com>
    Bcc: mpwalsh8+mike@gmail.com, aarntzen@wpst.example.com, abarroso@wpst.example.com, abeeghly@wpst.example.com

    There are options within the Plugin Settings to specify the From Sender name and/or email address which will affect the header (see hope@solo.com above).

    If you are just looking at the header in your email client, you will never see the BCC content by design. To see the header like I've shown above, I enabled debug which causes it to go to the PHP error log.

    Thank you for the quick response. I can live with that - just had a recipient question it so needed to ask.

    Love the WordPress.
    I am testing the registration process and email confirmations. Here is What is what the email looks like to the registrant. (testing with on of my email address)

    From: WordPress[wordpress@contractorinsurance.net]
    To: steve@athenainsurance.com

    I would like it to show


    I am not concerned about the email showing wordpress but the from field could get the email classified as Junk form those not familiar with WordPress.

    Kind regards,
