  • Changing Sender on Emails

    As our normal coder is away, I have to try and do this myself .

    Currently, when someone is subscribed to a thread, it emails them about a new reply. We have a large number of users with hotmail addresses, and when they are over quota on their accounts all the messages are getting bounced back to our webmaster email, which is getting near 50 emails an hour.

    What I'm trying to do is change the sender address to [email protected] for thread subscription notices only. I've searched through phrases and found $vbphrase[notify] however it does not contain the sender option, so I have attempted searching for $vbphrase[notify] in templates, however the search in templates function appears not to work.

    Could someone point me to the template or file I need to get into so that I can change the sender?

    Thanks in advance,
