Internal mail system using proper "from", manual email send does not.

Not sure how to properly set this thread title, but to make it simpel..

Whenever the forums send emails (password reminders, activation email, etc) it sends the E-Mail properly as the forums "Forum Name", (thus, FROM). Now, whenever I attempt to manually send e-mails to people it's using the full forum email as "from".

Example, forum name is "hello!" and the email is [email protected]

Receiving email for password recovery --> from: hello! -> subject title here
When I manually send email to user -> send email: From: [email protected] -> subject title here.

Is there any specific reason why?

When manually sending the email, are you using a mail client, or the send mail in the VB ACP?

Using the "send mail" function within the vB ACP. "/admincp/email.php?do=start"

Ok, that is the way that form is written. You can edit it or use a plugin to change it to not require a full email address.

Its a bit odd that the email form within the admincp is not using the forum name. I am unable to change the "from" to a title, as the "from" within the admincp has to be an email address.

right, you would have to edit the form itself, or use a plugin
