The plugin has two easy settings and programmer hook support to set as new From email address and a From name. It also should work perfectly fine with Multisite installations.


Since version 1.1 you may also overrule this plugin by using the following filters:

These work exactly the same as their core WordPress counterparts and allows you to implement your own mail_from and mail_from_name
