    I am trying to change the From: name and email that wordpress generates when a user reset's his password or he does any specific action that sends him an email.

    Here is an example of what I am trying to change: http://screencast.com/t/YjllYmJjZT

    I've made sure to put a different email from the General Settings Email Address

    Which file do I have to modify to change that name and email?

    Thank you.

    Grab a plugin called WP From Email (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-from-email/).

    Install, activate and set your preferred From: e-mail address.

    Thanks for the plugin reference. I installed it and activated it but im not sure where in the WP-Email Settings I can change the From email address.

    The email templates don't seem to include anything that has to do with the generic email that is being sent to a user when he forgets his password for example.

    Im thinking I should be able to change the email here: http://screencast.com/t/YWU2MzZmYTI but there is no option.

    Could you direct me to the setting that allows me to change the email?

    Are you sure you picked up the right plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-from-email/)?

    The settings are simple and look like this: http://www.deepweb.com.au/images/FromEmail.jpg.
