    1 @tsimmons I'm thinking, having read this ticket, that I wonder if I'm alone in thinking that it's not clear what this email address is *for*. Taking up your comment about the person/backend distinction... since one can't have an email conversation with a backend, since it isn't human, then presumably the idea is that it's effectively a "noreply@" address? i.e. An address that isn't really intended to get replies, and is just for aesthetics? (Of course, a site admin can set it up so that he *does* get replies (or he may have a catch-all) - but then he may as well just use the admin address anyway in that case). I'm not really saying anything either way here - just that

    33@Ipstenu I don't follow all of this. A few functions in wp-includes/ms-functions.php already do use the admin email as a From: address (I'm wondering whether there's a design in which emails do/don't, or if it's just a accumulation of unplanned independent decisions). Also, it can't be dangerous for the site admin see password reset requests, can it? He can already reset as many passwords as he likes, and/or set up a wordpress@ email address to the replies anyway (or may already have a catch-all).
