Registrant notification emails not showing correct [CO_EMAIL]

When registrants receive notification emails, the messages they receive do not show the correct [CO_EMAIL] email address as the “From” address (although we set up the template to do so). The [CO_EMAIL] address does appear properly as the “Reply-To” address. Any idea why it’s not appearing as the “From” address?

Hi there,

When EE ‘sends’ an email it passes it over to wp_mail() to do it’s thing. wp_mail() is filtered meaning other plugins can hook in and change the values used and that’s most likely what is happening here.

EE sets both the ‘From’ and ‘Reply-To’ headers to exactly the same value, like this:

$from    = $this->_from;
$headers = array(
    'From:' . $from,
    'Reply-To:' . $from,
    'Content-Type:text/html; charset=utf-8',

But something else can be hooking into wp_mail after EE has set it’s values and changing them.

Are you using an SMTP plugin or transactional email service with the site?

Thanks, Tony. We’re using the Mailjet plugin.

Ok, so check your sending setting with Mailjet:

Somewhere within your email setting something is set to use a different from address.
