Email settings: $wgNoReplyAddress
Reply-to address for automatically generated emails.
Introduced in version: 1.5.0
Removed in version: still in use
Allowed values: email address
Default value: see below
Other settings: Alphabetical | By function

Details[edit]

This address is used for the Reply-To: header of automatically generated emails. Any email replies will be sent to this address. It needs to be a correctly formatted email address, but it doesn't need to be real in any way.

Despite the name of the setting, this doesn't have to be a "no-reply" type address; however if you set it to a valid address, a lot of rubbish will get sent there, such as vacation auto-replies.

If you do wish to receive replies to automatically generated messages, you can set it equal to the $wgEmergencyContactManual:$wgEmergencyContact address, e.g.

$wgNoReplyAddress = $wgEmergencyContact;
