Would it be possible to have the from email address appear as the user's address and not Kathyrn's address?

    We do not require users to share their emails with the forums, so we can't have emails come from each individual user. However, the forums setup has been changed to that all future emails will appear from This should hopefully alleviate some of the confusion.
  • Thanks. Yes, that seems like a good solution.

    Now that emails all appear to come from, there's a warning message saying that "This message may not have been sent by:". I've attached a screenshot.

    I just worry that someone might think a forum-related email is spam.

    I think that is happening because it's trying to use incorrect smtp settings.

    I just tried to set it up as coming from the recommended settings for a gmail smtp server. Can you tell me if you're still getting the error?

    Nope ... the error is gone now. Thanks!
