This is a great add on.

Can anyone help me with the following query.

At the moment, we can obviously ammend the from address to whatever we want, however is there a way to ammend the from address so it includes a name, so when it comes to the inbox in outlook, it will display the name, not the email address?

When doing Email Alerts for lists, the name of the Site is the name of the sender, so I am sure it is possible somehow. Just wondering if this add on can help.

thank you.

It is certainly possible to do this. Sharepoint's SPUtility.SendEmail() supports passing in custom mail headers. I will evaluate implementing this in a future release.
