    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(dot)com
    I have also looked through the code but wouldn't thought hard coding a value was great practice.
    How can change this?

    The admin address that you can set there is used for all kind of outgoing emails. If you are sure that you set the right address and it is not used for the password reset mail, then make a feature request in the bugtracker to change that

    That's right, there is a problem with the heading "FROM" but the problem is with the source change shipping mail system. ISPConfig still trying to send from localhost instead of using SMTP.

    As if it worked properly:
