Works for me
FS#334 $conf['mailfrom'] is not taken into account
There's a configuration directive for DokuWiki: $conf['mailfrom']. According to documentation it's used when sending e-mails. As it can be expected it should fill 'From: ' field in e-mail. But this does not happen. Regardless of what I set it to, it's always set as <uid>@<fqdn>. Where <uid> is user id under which the web server runs, and <fqdn> is fully qualified domain name of web server hostname.
It does work for me. Maybe there is some config in your PHP install or mailserver which overrides this header?
You could be right. I tried to hardcode the 'From: ' field right before the mail() function is called. Still the same. PHP config is far beyond my competence... So, let's leave it as 'something is wrong with my workstation'. :)
