Description

the field "From E-Mail" can be used to not only set the email adress but also the friendly name shown in mail clients using this syntax:

"friendly sender name" <my.email@hoster.domain>

explaining this in tooltip might help some people. or add another option field for a friendly name ;)

History

#1 Updated by IT IGP over 2 years ago

using the hostname as default friendly name would be a good idea.

have several hosts using the same email account for notifications would make their mails look much prettier in email clients.
