WP Better Emails
[resolved] sender name & address not working (7 posts)

    The emails are coming out as edited, looks good. However, I have added a sender name and sender address but it still comes as some sort of default address from my hosting provider.

    Example of what I am getting: username@box123.hostingcompany.com instead of admin@website.com

    Please let me know if there is a way to remedy this.

    Hi Altair CI,

    It perfectly works for me and I never had any feedback about this kind of issue.

    Are you sure this is not a provider issue ?

    I am having the same problem where all of the emails that are generated are being sent from myusername@host.hostname.com

    happens to me as well. is there a fix? instead of using the name and email defined in the top section of the plugin... the test emails, and any subsequent emails, are sent with the default WP values.

    Just tested again and had no problems with that feature.
    Could you give some more information ? WP version ? Have you try to delete and reinstall the plugin ?

    Try to run a single PHP file with the code below, you'll see if the limitations comes from your hosting provider :

         $to      = 'person@example.com';
         $subject = 'subject';
         $message = 'Hey !';
         $headers = 'From: Sender Name <webmaster@example.com>' . "\r\n" .
         'Reply-To: webmaster@example.com' . "\r\n" .
         'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();
         mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

    thanks artyshow, follow up question: does wp better mail work for every sort of email wordpress sends? for instance, comment moderation and notifications? because mine doesn't seen to work for those. (works for other types of emails tho)
