    I have several blogs under different email setups. All should be separate from the others. The blog is totally separate from yet when someone likes a post on commonlooking I receive an email that states its from The Wise Guy Diaries to the email on the listed email on the Common Looking site. No where in any profile of either site is the emails mixed up. Where do I go to change this?

    The blog I need help with is



    The email address you used when registering your account is listed in:
    the Settings tab on the home page, or
    Users -> Personal Settings in your dashboard
    See > Issues Changing your E-mail Address



    Yes, Thank you but the issue is not that. The issue is that in each of the sites the email addresses are different. The common looking site has a totally different address than the WiseGuy site. No where that I can find in either setups do any of the emails coincide.


    So when a blogger clicks like on a post in CommonLooking, a email comes from TheWiseGuy telling me that with a donotreply wordpress designation on the FROM The WiseGuy Diaries <(email redacted)>



    When we register a username account here we provide an email address that becomes our unique identifier When we are logged in under a username account all blogs we register are registered under that same username account and associated email account. This thread has been flagged for Staff attention.



    You basically have two separate email address settings at

    Blog notifications for the admin (like comment moderation, Likes, new subscriptions, etc) are sent to the email address at Settings -> General in the Dashboard.

    Personal notifications (like comments on your post, subscription emails, and upgrade renewals) are sent to the email address at Users -> Personal Settings in the Dashboard.


    Below you will see the response I received from the change made to the email address in the admin area you mentioned. The Users is already changed earlier today. It still comes from the WiseGuy you see here. Again, it sent the response to my other blog registered on a totally different email address. TheWiseGuy you see in the first message above

    Dear user,

    You recently requested to have the administration email address on
    your site changed.
    If this is correct, please click on the following link to change it:

    You can safely ignore and delete this email if you do not want to

    All at



    The name in the From field is the Site Title at Settings -> General.

    Did you click the link to confirm the email change?


    Here is the field you speak about

    Site Title Common Looking

    The email change was confirmed. Just as a note, the email I changed was just another email I have for this site. The one I changed it from was the original email that I used when I started the site. Never has it ever been The Wise Guy Diaries



    Ok, that is odd. Have you ever had a blog on your account named The WiseGuy Diaries or were you ever subscribed to a blog with that name?


    I have a site called The WIseGuy Diaries but it has a different email and password and has nothing in common with Common Looking


    Here’s what just came in when I replied to your last note signed in as Common Looking

    in response to your topic “Email Notifications”:

    I have a site called The WIseGuy Diaries but it has a different email and password and has nothing in common with Common Looking



    Was it ever under your commonlooking account and transferred away?



    Ok, I believe this is related to an issue we’re fixing right now. All emails are currently being sent without a name in the From field, and some email programs are just automatically adding the last known name for donotreply (at), which was possibly “The WiseGuy Diaries” for you.


    ok sounds good. Thanks for helping so much.
