Need help changing from address

11 years 2 months ago #80381 by dlawler
Hi,

I am community builder and joomla 1.5. I want to use the php mailer function in joomla because it seems to be the only one that will work with one of my other components.

However, I cannot figure out how to change the "from" address that is sent in the emails that users receive after they register.

I feel like I have tried almost everything.

All help is appreciated

does anyone have any idea how to do this? It doesn't seem like it should be that hard I am just not sure which file to edit.

Is it something I need to go through my host to do?

thanks

Isn't this a configuration option in CB Configuration backend?/

yes, but those options don't seem to work when I use the php mailer.

looked at source code and don't see any bug at first glance.

is the from address correct in emails sent by joomla and other components ?

what's you joomla version ?

what's your php mail settings ?

in CB configuration -> registration : is the from address and name identical to the joomla one ?

That was it! the from addresses were identical but the names were not.

Thanks Beat, I really appreciate it
