Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Prepared Emails possibility to choose sender’s email address

Postby knowhow » Mon Feb 24, 2014 5:27 am


Is there a way to replace or choose beforehand sender’s email address at the Prepared Emails which are automatically sent to users from the system (for example in the User Register or in the User Validate email templates)? In some journals the management of such tasks like account management or user registration is done by the person stated as Technical Support Contact (Set Up step 1.3). It would be most convenient if those emails could be sent from that email address so the users can contact with the right staff at the beginning. At the moment we’ve changed the email address at the Principal Contact email field in order to overcome the problem. Any suggestions?

We are using OJS 2.3.X

Thank you in advance

Hi Efi,

Each email is individually coded in PHP to come from a particular participant in the journal; to change who an email comes from, you'll need to first identify the email, then find the relevant code and change the sender address there. Which emails specifically are you interested in?
