I understand that Email::setAdminEmail(); may be used to set the email address used for outgoing messages.
How can I change the name, not just the email address, from which email is sent?
I want one line of code which I can place in _config.php to send emails from the name "My Name"
I would use Siteconfig for that.
One way is to give SiteConfig a $has_one Member and select a Member which you want to set as default contact.
Another way is to add an Email and Name field to SiteConfig and use that as default.
See this tutorial on SSBits:
Email::setAdminEmail() can take RFC822 formatted emails so you can pass the name and email like Email::setAdminEmail("Name <email@example.com>"); Might need to test that first though
