Solved Sender name changed?

Post by Caroline on February 19th 2014, 3:35 pm

Hello,

Since yesterday the senders name in e-mails is changed:

If I receive a PM normally I get a notice in my e-mail with the name of the forum, but now it says the name of the
person who send the PM.

Do more people have this problem? I get complains from members because there e-mail filter doesn't work for the personal names.

Thank you,

Caroline

Hello, the question is good to explain! You can supply me via one capture of your screen your e-mail and your deprived message (only the name or entirely if wish it to you) please

Here a printscreen of my mailbox (so not on the board, but e-mail):



First line (marked) blue says 'er is een nieuwe privébericht' (what means 'you have a new private message').
Normally the sender was the name of my forum, so 'PSP Dreamland', but now it says the name of the person who send me a private message (in this case 'Silvia') instead of the name of my forum.

As you can see in the second line, I get a message from the post from you, sender 'The Forum of the forums' so that is correct the name of the forum/board. 

It has suddenly changed, because before the sender of notifications on my board was always 'PSP Dreamland' and now it says the name of the person who send a PM instead of the name of the board.


Hope you understand.

Kind regards
Caroline

This has been asked in the staff area, too.

Edit:  Yes, it has been changed.  The username will appear instead of the name of the forum.
