It'd be great to be able to have (as that other blogging system does) the poster's e-mail address as the sender address when comment notifications are sent.

Also being able to modify the e-mail template and subject template would be a nice touch, so that I can more easily distinguish them from one weblog to another, etc...

It looks like this is related to bug 263 ( ) -- once I modified functions.php to use '\n' instead of '\r\n' as the line terminator, I began to see proper From: headers in my mails. I'm going to close this one now (since it's essentially a dupe)
