Changing the default WordPress email sender

It’s not uncommon to want to change the email sender that WordPress sets automatically, especially in e-commerce situations. It’s actually really easy to do by adding a couple of filters in your theme’s functions.php file:

/** change the default WordPress email sender */
add_filter('wp_mail_from', 'my_mail_from');
add_filter('wp_mail_from_name', 'my_mail_from_name');

function my_mail_from($email) {
return 'customerservice@example.com';
}
function my_mail_from_name($name) {
return 'Customer Service';
}
