Issue with Registration Email

Postby Stewie » Fri Mar 09, 2007 2:45 pm

When a new user registers the email that is sent to them does not have a 'From' address, it just shows that is from '<>'

Is there a way I can specify what the 'From' address should be?

Also when some one tries to register for a journal it will not let them. The journal manager has to assign them a role before they can see the journal. Is this how its supposed to be?

Hi Stewie,

There are two places to set the "From" email address for emails originating with the site, depending on which address you want to set ("reply-to" or "from"). First, check to make sure that the principal contact is set on Journal Setup, page 1. Then, if that doesn't do what you're looking for, try enabling the "allow_envelope_sender" option in and then set the "Bounce Address" setting on Journal Setup, page 1. (Your mail server may not allow you to do set this second option.)

To enable or disable self-registration of various roles, see Journal Setup, page 4, under "User Registration".
