    I found wp-login.php that has the subject and body of the email, but i can't find where to modify the from name and email address of the password reset form.

    Can someone point me to this?

    By default it comes from WordPress [wordpress@domain.com]

    Thanks!

    Did ya grep the code for wordpress@?

    Would be the "quickest" way to find and eradicate any instances.

    I have the same when someone deletes a blog, it's also sender "Wordpress".

    I wonder why this is not in the option screen.

    I had this same problem now. My ISP doesn't support sending emails from a local address that doesn't exist. wordpress@mydomain.com doesn't exist. I have also used up all my email accounts, so I can't create it.

    I strongly feel this should be a configurable setting. Or why doesn't it just use the e-mail address under General Settings?

    If you were using single-user wordpress, it sends emails from the same address. Those are emails sent by the system itself for things like comment notifies etc..

    MU was not meant to be run on a shared server.

    you can't even set up an email forward for it? Changing hosts will solve that problem and probably a few that will crop up should your site get much bigger.

    it would be nice if MU at least uses the email address you configure.

    I agree. There should be some way of configuring the the address for system messages to be configured for the site admin. The domain of the server and my email domains aren't exactly the same. Email runs through other servers, not my web servers.

    Wait a minute. It looks like it is coming from the site_admin, which is a valid email address that I provided. I was looking at the first email when the site is first setup. That one comes from you@example.com. This is for 1.5.1 at least.
