I notice that when you send out the password change link, it arrives coming from wpforo. When I send it out, it arrives coming from Wordpress and then the name of my org.  Where can I change that?

Hi @briegull,

All emails (excerpt user registration) related to forum are being sent from the EMail you configured in the Forums > Settings > Emails admin page. User registration process is under WordPress control, not wpForo. wpForo only provides with registration form, other processes are performed by WordPress. And yes, this is a known issue of WordPress. This is the default Wordpress email. You should change it using some hooks like this:

add_filter( 'wp_mail_from', function( $name ) {return 'info@mydomain.com' ; } ) ;
add_filter( 'wp_mail_from_name', function( $name ) {return 'My Forum name' ; } ) ;

Change the red marked strings and put this code in your current active theme functions.php file. Make sure you didn't deleted the apostrophe before and after the strings.
