How to change WordPress email address and name

By default, WordPress sends emails with [email protected] as the sender address and name.

You can change this by adding some code to your theme’s functions.php file.

To change the sender address, use this code:

function my_custom_mail_from() {
    return '[email protected]';
add_filter('wp_mail_from', 'my_custom_mail_from');

Make sure to use a sender address with a domain you own and set up properly, or your emails might be marked as spam.

To change the sender name, use this code:

function my_custom_mail_from_name() {
    return 'Your Name';
add_filter('wp_mail_from_name', 'my_custom_mail_from_name');
