Replace wordpress@domain without replacing all From emails?

Published on: February 14, 2022 at 9:51 pm · By: veganostomy

I’m currently trying out GD Mail Queue Lite and one problem I’ve been running into is that any email sent from the built-in end up with an error: “SMTP Error: The following recipients failed: myemail: : Sender address rejected: not owned by user myemail”

Since these are largely emails directed at admin activities, like forum moderation, it hasn’t impacted users and they get other emails no problem, but it’s still a problem since admins can’t get website email.

I know that forcing all emails to have a specific FROM address works, but this overrides the email address for notifications that my users get from or from

How can I change the from “” email without affecting other FROM addresses?

    Sorry, I can’t help you with this. I have no idea how do you set different emails for forums or newsletter, they are not directly WP related. All WP emails are sent the same way, and my plugin has an option to override FROM for emails sent via wp_mail() function, but it will do it for everything. Depending on other stuff on your website, best course is to setup your own code for FROM replacement, and do replacement under some conditions only to selectively replace FROM.

    I may need to look at a custom solution to changing the “wordpress@” sender. I didn’t have this problem with my previous SMTP plugin, which is why I thought it was a setting that I might have been missing with GD Mail Queue.

    FYI, in case anyone else runs into this problem, I found a solution.

    I had to add the email address as an external email with my mail provider. Once that was done, all WordPress emails to the admin would clear without trouble.

    This is the first time I’ve had to do this, but I think it might be necessary for some email plugins.
