Notification E-Mail.

Not about the forum but about the notifications:
Is it possible to change the name of the emailadres? That "Info_" just doesn't cope with my spamfilter :)
Maybe KaM EN Forum?
Or something like it?

Hi,

I don't think the 'info_' is what causes your spamfilter to catch our mail. I believe it to be PHP's 'mail' functionality.

I can try setting up different e-mail settings, but I'll have to test if they work and phpBB doesn't offer a test functionality. However, I've already set up a test forum, so maybe I can try it there. Give me some time, I'll try figuring it out.

To answer your other question:
No, it's not possible (in phpBB) to change the 'from' name. It'll always use the e-mail address that's filled out.

I've looked into the matter the past hour.

It seems there's nothing we can do about it. Since the forum is hosted on this domain, it seems it already uses our SMTP. It seems to be a 'common' problem that phpBB mail is sometimes filtered by spamfilters. However, I'm using hotmail, and all the mail is not caught by my spam filter.

I don't know which e-mail provider you're using, but can't you add KaM.net to your trusted contacts?

Yeah, I have GMail, and I'll do that. Thanks for bothering.
