"From" Field in confirmation Email

When my events send a confirmation email, they come through with the correct option set in General Settings for the email, but the “From” field of the email says “WordPress”. Where do I go to customize this?

Set the option “Enable fancy Email headers” in Event Espresso>General Settings under mail settings to yes.

Thanks Josh. I enabled the fancy headers but still am not seeing the option of where to customize the “From” field. It’s still coming through as “WordPress.”

Appreciate your help on this.

I got it fixed. The fancy headers was right – it just got stuck in my caching. Thanks again!

I have the same problem. But after I enable Fancy Headers the emails stopped coming through altogether. I’m assuming my mail server isn’t fond of the format or something. Once I turned off Fancy Headers the confirmation emails started coming through again.

I ran into this problem before and found another way to fix it but now I cannot for the life of me remember what it was. Can someone tell me another way to fix this problem? I cannot have my confirmation emails showing as coming from “WordPress.” Thanks.

I remembered the fix! That was fast, I know. 🙂

I used a WP plugin called “wp mail from”. Works like a charm.
