Can i make Jira/Confluence send notification from the users own emails?


Is there any way of making Jira/Confluence/Bamboo sending notifications using the users own email on updates/comments rather than using a generic email for all notifications? The reason i am asking is that many email clients automatically store a new contact when a email is received, and this becomes quite misleading.

For example: If a email is sent from "Jonas Andersson<jira@jira.local>", a contact with this information is stored in the email client. The next time the same client receive an email from "Benny Lava<jira@jira.local>" it automatically re-uses the contact created, so it looks like Jonas Andersson sent the notification. Not sure if this is caused by the exchange server, or the individual clients but so far i had the problem reported in Evolution (linux) and the native IOS8, but unfortunately both clients and mailservers have been upgraded lately, so i am not sure what might have caused this behavior to change.

Thankful for any help i can get on this.

Kind regards
