I found something nice and I want to share coz maybe you find it usefull too (most of you may already know).
settings.py file you probably have a line where you set the email which all the outgoing emails will appear to have been sent from:
DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL = 'email@example.com'
do-not-reply appears also as the name of the sender, which, as you may agree, is not so nice.
The revolutionary code that will change your life is:
DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL = 'Name Surname <firstname.lastname@example.org>'
So at Name Surname you can put anything more friendly you want, like askbot team or askbot admin (of course not askbot but your site's name) and there you are, enjoy your new look :)
Well, the point of this is to make it clear that nobody will read your response. If there is a name shown - the point may be lost. That said - you can of course modify the settings as you like.
Is there a name that would also give a clear message "do not reply to me"? Maybe we can put that into the default settings file template. It's nice that it is possible to add a formatted name to those email settings.
