#1352 closed enhancement (wontfix)

wp_email() From: header doesn't include name

Reported by: doey Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 1.5.1
Component: General Keywords: has-patch

The wp_email() From: header only includes the sender email address -- no name. In a shared hosting environment this is undesirable b/c while the admin email address is used the name string is whatever the php default is, usually the hostname. Adding the blogname setting makes this more aesthetically pleasing. A patch is attached.

I don't think this is really "fixed" having the name as well would be usefull.

It will need encoding though as the headers are 7bit

westi, isn't "being useful" more plugin territory? This is a pluggable function, after all.

For a simple change like this I wouldn't call it plugin territory.

Having to copy and paste the whole function into a plugin to change one line seems a bit extreme.
