Hi Alex,

You can only specify an email address for the From address field (e.g. JIRA will use this value to construct the full 'from' header based on the current user ("Joe Bloggs (JIRA) <>").

To change the 'from' header, go to Administration > System > General Configuration and (under Settings), edit the Email from field.



Thank You for responce but I can not find Email from field.

I use Confluence version 5.3

I have attached screen with my General Configuration

Please help.

Best Regards,
