#56500 closed feature request (worksforme)

WordPress sends email from a fixed address which will not work in my environment

In wp-includes/pluggable.php there is code that builds a From line for sending error messages. I am working in a constrained environment and there is only one From line from which I am allowed to send email. Currently I have to edit every time there is a new release - it would be good if there were some way of configuring a fixed address that could be used. I appreciate that an option would not work if there were database issues, though that would be good where there weren't, or a define in config.

Hi @brivets,

Welcome to Trac!

This is already possible by using the wp_mail_from and wp_mail_from_name filters. You can also work at a lower level by interacting with PHPMailer directly using the phpmailer_init action.

add_filter( 'wp_mail_from', function () {
        return '';
} );

add_filter( 'wp_mail_from_name', function () {
        return 'Your Name';
} );
