Hello Michele,

When Mahara sends email from 'noreply' address, Mahara site name is used as sender name. So, that name you see in email is in fact your site name and you may change it in Admin->Site Options->Site Settings if you like. There is no separate setting for defining noreply sender name independently at the moment.

Hello Michele,

In your mahara folder, locate the file  "lib/config-defaults.php". This file contains more options for your Mahara web site. Never modify that file but copy/paste the command you are interested in, into your "config.php".

In your case you could copy/paste the command

   $cfg->noreplyaddress = ''

into your "config.php" file.

Then, Mahara will use this information to send 'noreply' emails to users.

This will only change the noreply address itself, I believe what Michele was looking for is the actual sender name associated with that address which is displayed in email client. Wink
