Support » Plugin: WordPress Contact Forms by Cimatti » How to set email sender name

  • Resolved Balint Toth



    I would like to ask, how can I set the email sender’s name that is appearing with the From: address in the confirmation email which gets the person who completed the form? Right now it says WordPress, and I cannot find a way to change that. I have put in the same email address that is set up for the WordPress installation for admin notifications in Settings->General->Email address.

    The website is hosted at Bluehost.

    Thank you very much!

    In file accua-forms.php change line 2896:


    $header[] = 'From: '.$form_data_replaced['emails_from'];


    $header[] = 'From: '.$form_data_replaced['emails_from'].' <'.$form_data_replaced['emails_from'].'>';

    Hello Kristýna and Toth Balint BT, sorry for the delay in answering.

    The possibility is already incorporated in the plugin itself and a screenshot is available in the faq on our website:
    under “We want to customize the name that emails come from”…

    So for this problem it is better to solve without changing the code.

    Oh, thank you! I was not aware of that…

    If I may suggest a tiny improvement, you should incorporate this info by filling in some demo content in the proper textbox as default value. Because I have tried with typing in the email address and the sender name also, but obviously without any success.

    Thank you again! You have a created really good plugin! Keep up the good work!
