    I'm looking to change the email address of messages that come from ISPconfig. I have set the admin email address under Interface > Main Config > Mail, but this doesn't change the email address which ISPconfig sends mail as.

    For instance when I reset the a password, message get sent as ispconfig@ domain-name .com

    How can change this?

    In the password reset message (/interface/web/login/password_reset.php), I can see where ISPconfig sets the sender to ['admin_email'], I would of thought this would be pulling the admin email address which is set under Interface > Main Config > Mail. But for some reason it doesn't.

    I tried to change it manually in the php file but it still doesn't change the sender email address in the message.
    $app->ispcmail->setSender('test@example .com', $mail_config['admin_name']);

    Resolved issue, turned out to be a problem with the DNS entry. When the recipient server received the message, it was unable to verify the original source of the message correctly.

    I have the same issue/problem. I have checked the DNS entry and it appears to be fine.

    Can you explain what you did to resolve this?

    Thank you,

    I have the same problem, I have installed the ISPCONFIG but I do not know how to change admin mail, this is very usuful, because if for any case I forget my password from the login screen I can use the option to send me an email with the new password.
