    Default changing sent from email address for customer order confirmations

    I have looked everywhere for this but being unable to find any solution as yet. My stores default email address is [email protected] However, I want the order confirmation email (the one the customer receives) to come from [email protected]

    Is there any way to do this, or is it beyond zencarts capability? (I do have the email set up and working with my web host)

    Default Re: changing sent from email address for customer order confirmations

    ok mangaged to find this on wiki

    Email Address (sent FROM)
    (Admin - Catalog)

    Address from which email messages will be sent by default. Can be over-ridden at compose time in Admin modules.
    Default: Zen Cart <[email protected]>


    now to figure out which files to change...

    None. That's an admin setting, under Admin->Configuration->Email Options.

    Default Re: changing sent from email address for customer order confirmations

    I think you misunderstood me. Under the menu you posted I see options for changing the default email address and the options and configurations for sending copies of emails sent
    I have the following email addresses:
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    etc etc

    What I want to achieve is the customer receiving order conformations from [email protected] instead of [email protected] (which is my default)

    Make a direct edit to one of the core files:
    (Remember, this will break during upgrades, so you will need to do it again and again.)

    /includes/classes/order.php
    Code:
        zen_mail($this->customer['firstname'] . ' ' . $this->customer['lastname'], $this->customer['email_address'], EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT . EMAIL_ORDER_NUMBER_SUBJECT . $zf_insert_id, $email_order, STORE_NAME, EMAIL_FROM, $html_msg, 'checkout', $this->attachArray);
    Replace EMAIL_FROM with '[email protected]'

    Then test to be sure your webserver actually allows you to do that, since some don't like you sending from multiple addresses unless you've set up your store to use SMTPAUTH mode for sending emails. You will definitely have a problem if you've left it at the default of using 'PHP' mode for sending email.

    Thank you for responding and pointing me in the right direction, I really appreciate it.

    I altered that part of the code but then I get a blank page when I go to checkout on the website. My email settings are php so I'll play around with that tomorrow (getting too late to do that tonight).

    That says you created a PHP error in your edits.
