I am not sure if this is a CMSB or PHP setting but is there any way I can define the "from" name that appears when an email template is sent?

I know I can define the "from" email address I would like to define the name of the person that the email is sent from (i.e. the First Name, Last Name).

I have tried to configure the "first name" and "last name" of my email account via the ISP settings but this doesn't seem to have made any difference. So I was wondering if there was a PHP variable that I could define somewhere.

Thanks for any help you can offer.



Hi Greg

Thanks for posting.

 Could you give me some more context on what you are trying to setup?

The two main options you have for setting the "FROM" address is by manually setting it in the template itself or by passing a placeholder from the front end form that uses the template.

Do either of those options apply here?
