  • How can I change the name that e-mail is sent from

    Hi all,

    As of now, whenever vBulletin sends an e-mail to any user, it uses the entire name of my forum as the name that the e-mail was sent from. This is what I would like to change.

    For example, when I get a private message and I look at my Outlook, it shows I got an e-mail from "GamersThrone: Video Game Forums". I want to change it so it just shows up as being from "GamersThrone", but I don't want to change the name of my forum.

    How can I do this?

    Thanks!

    Admin CP -> Languages & Phrases -> Search in Phrases

    Search for "x_mailer" in the Phrase Variable Name Only. Edit the matching phrase. I think it uses that phrase.

      Worked, sorta.

      I changed the phrase from '{1}' to 'GamersThrone' and the e-mail was shown the way I wanted it to be shown, but I get the following error on my vBadvanced homepage:

      Fatal error: Call to undefined function print_portal_output() in /home/gamersth/public_html/index.php on line 46
      ...so I had to change it back to '{1}'.

      Can you help, or do I need to get help from vBadvanced?

        There is no reason changing that phrase would break that. Contact vBadvanced support however, as thta is their scripts problem.

          It's working now. That was odd.

          Thanks for your help
