Almost all LearnDash sites send emails to their users. There are also some emails that go out to site administrators. By default, these emails come from “WordPress” and use “” as the FROM email address. Let’s change the FROM name & email to better reflect your business, and use an email address you actually have access to, and can respond from.

If you’re already using a custom PHP snippet, or an SMTP plugin, to change these settings, keep using that and leave these blank.

If you haven’t made any changes yet, here’s an easy way to update your email sender settings in LearnDash.

LearnDash email sender settings in the admin

  1. Navigate to LearnDash LMS > Settings > Emails
  2. Scroll down to Email Sender Settings
  3. Enter your from name & from email address
  4. Click the Save button

This Applies to ALL Emails

Changing your FROM name & email address in the LearnDash settings will change the name & email used for ALL emails sent from your site, not just LearnDash ones.

Default emails that WordPress sends to administrators, emails that other plugins might send to your users, literally all emails. This is probably the behavior you want, but I just want you to be aware of it.
