Notification address is host's email

  1. Desmond

    I have a situation where our forms' notifications are coming through with a different email and name than what is set in the Notification To User section of the form.

    For example, the form lists:
    From Name: My Name
    From Email:

    But the email comes from

    Any thoughts on how to override this?

    I found a solution for this, put this piece of code in the functions.php of your theme:

    add_filter('wp_mail_from', 'new_mail_from');
    add_filter('wp_mail_from_name', 'new_mail_from_name');
    function new_mail_from($old) {
     return '';
    function new_mail_from_name($old) {
     return 'Your Site';
