From email 'Display Name' as 'Forum Site'


(Arslan Hassan) #1

Hey Guys,
in addition to the following post
https://meta.discourse.org/t/add-name-to-from-field-in-emails/2266?u=arslancb&source_topic_id=22421

I want to display forum name which is ‘ClipBucket discourse’ in my case when sending notification email which is notify@clipbucket.com. Gmail parse it as only ‘notify’ and confuses user. Wouldn’t it be nice to display our own forum name instead?

or am I missing something?

That’s the email deliverability test – it is not like regular emails.

Notifications generally come in this format, with the name of the user who is talking to you.

Subject: [Community Title] [Category] Topic Title

And you are referencing a topic from Feb '13 that was already fixed.

It would be nice to have the option to not have the ‘From’ name set to the user, but instead be able to generically set it (which is what I thought the original post was about).
