Hi DNN community members,
I'm not sure if this should be here in the Admin/Config section or development section, please let me know if I should move it.
I have a custom e-commerce checkout module that my company developed. It notifies the customer of a completed purchase by sending a template-based email message to the customer, showing their transaction details. The message is sent using the DotNetNuke.Services.Mail class, and sets the FROM of the message using a Module Setting value - DotNetNuke.Services.Mail.Mail.SendEmail(SendEmailFrom, SendEmailTo, SubjectLine, Body);
Our clients have just drawn to our attention that the customer is receiving thank you messages from the correct email address ([email protected]), however the Sender Name is showing as "DNN". I've been trying to track that down, looking at the Portal Admin account, but don't see a simple "DNN" used anywhere.
Can anyone point me to where the Sender NAME gets populated when it's not provided? I would almost think that would come from a contact list somewhere, but it's obviously not the customer's contacts. If it's relevant, we used SendGrid as our SMTP server/relay.
Thanks, Sebastian, I'll look into that. I believe that the SendGrid account API that I've configured as the SMTP server was provided by the client, so it's possible they set up the sender identity using "DNN" as a name somehow.
For future reference, I found another old thread on the dnnsoftware forum that directed me to a solution where I had to update a Host Setting in the database.

Did you see other's reply to a similar thread? It is pulling this from the HostTitle attribute in the HostSettings table. You should also update the HostURL and HostEmail
