When our users are putting in their "Forgot my password" stuff, they email comes from a bogus server address and goes straight to spam usually..

How do I make the 'From' line of those emails look like it was from my site through the config file?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

other people seem to be having this problem:

This is a pretty major bug.. I'm guessing that every single version of 2.2.2 has this issue too..
A fix would really be nice!
