How can we improve?

Allow to set "from" when sending Administrative emails

Currently GFI will send emails to the administrative email address via SMTP, but it will also send from this administrative email address. Quite a nuisance since we want emails to show which server they are coming from, not from our BackupAdmin group.

    No Ian, that is not supported. You can only set the SAME person as the sender and recipient of that message, which in cases when you need to use impersonation and relay (because GFI Archiver does not support sending emails to Office 365 directly, ahem), it creates a mess.

    Get it right, guys, "To" is not "From".

    That is NOT the case. This ONLY allows you to set the Administrator email address. This administrator account sets who receives the emails, but also sets the from email address. This causes all emails to be filtered by spam unless the email account is whitelisted. Pretty frustrating and a serious oversight on GFI's part.

    Note, I already submitted a ticket on this and was instructed by GFI support to submit this here. So it is NOT already present.
