Customising notification email, No-reply, or something

notifications

(Benjol) #1

Not having got a domain (yet), I unthinkingly put my own email address in notification email.

This morning in my inbox I discovered a reply from someone responding to a notification about a PM from another user!
The worse thing is that the “From” on the notification looks like this SenderName <myemailaddress>, so unless they were particularly vigliant, they would complete overlook it.

I’m aware that I can enable ‘reply by email’, but I’m not quite ready for that yet.

In the meantime, is there any kind of workaround? (Big nasty header at the top of each notification mail, or adding NOREPLY if reply by mail is not enabled?

This is very, very wrong and you should not do that.

If your email is on @gmail.com this implies you are running a Discourse instance for the gmail.com domain…

I suggest noreply@your-domain.com here if you don’t have anything else.

(How are you running a site without a domain? Are people accessing it via IP address?)

On discoursehosting.net for the moment, so not my domain, no.
