I've taken over a site, and have found the from address for the emails (eg password reminders) are coming from the wrong address.

How can I change the from address to the correct email?

The correct address is set in the settings -> General -> Email Address

The email address that the emails are coming from is one of the administrators.

  • the email address is already not the standard one. i've tried to force it using the answers in that "duplicate" - not working. what else could it be? – Will Aug 8 '17 at 17:26
  • I'v tried changing the first admin users email address in the DB - it doesn't change the from address – Will Aug 8 '17 at 18:00
