Vasu Arora asked 5 years ago

Everything is Working Fine. But In the Confirmation Email, The Name (which is usually above the Subject) shows “WordPress”. I am making Website for Hospital. It looks Unprofessional. Is there a Way to show the Actual Name of the Company?

Hi Hong, do you have running email function on your hosting? Can you try for example to reset password? Do you get that email?
