No more emails from wordpress@yourdomain.com!
By , for WP 4.0.1

Whenever a user signed up on my website they got a confirmation email from 'WordPress' <wordpress@yourdomain.com>. This was confusing for my users since they usually have no idea/don't care what software my website is built with.

I had given up searching for a plugin that would override this behaviour. Every plugin I tried interfered with my Contact Form 7 from headers, or they tried to take over my whole registration process with a huge amount of options.

I gave up and started writing my own code into my theme's functions.php file. It worked great and I was about to export it to a separate plugin when I found this solution. Now I don't have to.

This solution is very simple and elegant. It only overrides the name 'WordPress' and the email 'wordpress@', so it doesn't interfere with CF7 or other plugins that use wp_mail(). Just set it and forget it.

Great work, thank you!
