We've recently re-installed our Sharepoint 2007 server, and migrated the old content.

Previously if a user edited a calendar, the notification email sent out would appear as though it's from the editing user. For example:

Joe Bloggs makes a new calendar appointment. A notification email is sent out, appearing as though the email is from

This is no longer happening on our new system.

In the "Outgoing E-Mail Settings" of our Sharepoint system, the "From address:" field is blank at the moment. We use Exchange as our email server.

Any suggestions gratefully received.
