This snip of code lets you customize the email “from” that appear on emails sent from WordPress. By default the “From Name” on emails sent from wordpress has a name “WordPress”.  To change from name with your blog name, simply copy and paste the code into the function.php file of your theme.

// change mail from name
function reset_fromname($email){
 $wpfrom = get_option('blogname');
 return $wpfrom;

add_filter('wp_mail_from_name', 'reset_fromname');

You can also change From email address. To do this, insert code below into functions.php

// change  from email address
function reset_fromemail($email){
 $wpfromemail = 'example@yourdomain.com';
 return $wpfromemail;

add_filter('wp_mail_from', 'reset_fromemail');
