I'm having a little issue with my SMTP. I use a plugin WP MAIL to manage the email configurations as it makes it easy to run in/outgoing emails without leaving unsent or stuck mails. Everything is working properly but the email shows this [email protected] as Bounce address which is not good for SEO plus it shows the username of my WP installation, which is not the best for the security.I'd really like to change that. Any idea to work this out?

PS: /home/Uxxxxxxxx/public_html/wp-admin/options-general.php this is also shown from the received email. Any way to change this either?

Thanks a lot everyone

That seems to be the configured SMTP server by your hosting. It might be possible to configure this if you have CPANEL included. If that's the case, take a look at this article. It explains how you can create your own SMTP address and use it for sending e-mails from your website.

Alternatively, you can use another provider to send emails for you. I can recommend sending your emails with a SMTP provider like Sendgrid. You will need to signup, add CNAME records to your domain, and you can use for example mailing.example.com as your sender address. It offers a ton of features and Deliverability is great. With a plugin such as Post SMTP Mailer/Log this can be easily configured.

Let me know if it helps you! Cheers..
