Admin mail -> email_reply_notify -> Change sender

Is it possible to change the sender of the notify-mails? It's a bad thing that the e-mail adress of the admin shows up there. Nice would be something like "MiniBB Forum" as sender of the mail. :) Can I change that?

Actually, the sender must be some "real" email, or at last correct email. You can not put some physical name there, in this case you will see, for example:

But this of course can be changed - in bb_functions.php, sendMail() function. You need to edit Reply-To: header.

mh, but why does it have to be a real email Adress? Other forum-software can manage this. :(

Anyway, thanx for your help :)

Not real, but correct. Depends only on you what you will put there.

Check this line:

"From: $from_email\r\nReply-To: $errors_email\r\nErrors-To: $errors_email\r\nX-Mailer: PHP ver. $php_version"

and replace emails you need.
