  • change the "from" part for mails sent via the board

    As the title says. My board sends out emails with a from line like this: Doom9's MPEG Forum Mailer

    Some email providers filter this out because they think it's spam, and hotmail places the mails into the junk box. Is there any workaround to this?

    Yeah you can.
    But you will need to edit lots of .php files.

    You basically need to edit all calls for the mail() function.
    They will look like this:
    [code]mail($email,$emailsubject,$emailmsg,"From: \"$bbtitle Mailer\" <$webmasteremail>");
    but the code will vary.

    So find all instances of this in vB's files, and change the red part ($bbtitle is the title of your forum, btw).
