What email address do you use in wp admin general settings?
What email address do you use in WP Admin General Settings?
Do you use a personal email address?
Do you use your domain email address?
It says “This address is used for admin purposes.”
I used a personal email address thinking it was just between WordPress & myself the site owner.
Also because gmail would only fetch up to 5 email accounts, but I can’t find any current reference to that now.
I recently found out that plugins that as part of their functionality (reason why you have the plugin in the first place) send out emails on behalf of the site using the default admin email address if they haven’t given you the option to set an email address.
My revelation came from querying the setup of a GDPR plugin. Oddly it gave me the option to set a ‘from’ email address for 2 of their functions but not the other 2.
It’s made me think what other plugins (if any) I might have with that functionality & their set up. Also what email address to use as my WP admin default as it could land up being used for different purposes.
Are there any other factors to consider?
