How do you change the WordPress sender e-mail address without a plugin?


Adding the following lines to my child theme’s functions.php file worked for me. Substitute the e-mail address of your choice for add email address

function wpb_sender_email( $original_email_address ) {
return 'add email address';

add_filter( 'wp_mail_from', 'wpb_sender_email' );

A note about this solution:

This is for changing only the e-mail address; not the sender name and e-mail address.

I needed to change¬† the email address to, and leave the sender’s name in place.

I found several pages with instructions on how to accomplish this, but found the clearest instructions at the url below.¬† It contains instructions on how to change both the sender’s name and e-mail address.
