Email sender of notification emails

Wednesday 03 October 2012 3:46:15 pm - 4 replies

Hi  everyone,

How is it possible to change the sender and the subject of the notification emails?

In my case , email sender is "Administrator User <>

I want to change it to my website's name.

But I cannot find it in plain.tpl neither the subject name

Try to modify the mail's configuration into file settings/override/site.ini.append.php : 


(If EmailSender is null, AdminEmail is used )

NB: do not forget to clear cache after modification

In my site.ini.append.php I have my email-address for both of the

when i change admin it doesnt differ , when i change email sender , it doesnt send the email.

Should I create a user group with the name of my website only for this?

We can modify the subtree/digest email template to achieve this.

For sub-tree Notification :

- notification/handler/ezsubtree/view/plain.tpl

For Digest Notification :

- notification/handler/ezgeneraldigest/view/

In the template You can change the value of the 'from' and 'subject.'

Hope this helps

Hi Raj and thank you for your answer.

Finally for subject, i edited it in plain.tpl in subtree folder,

but for sender, I added an override for notification.ini and i put the address email that i wanted there.

Thank you very much again.
