Email sender name


I use node-red-node-email to send emails. Is it possible to change the sender name? The emails I got has only the adress as sender. But I want to add a name there. It should looks like:

Node-RED (

I use gmail with 2 factor authentification.

Thanks in advance

The from property has to be valid email format.

You could try
Node-Red<> as the from address then the email client may display the name Node-Red

No that doesn't work.

But I found a solution. The userid is the gmail address. I combined the the email node with a change node. I added msg.from = ( is your email address)
