Setting "From" in Mailer model

At the moment mail sent from my app comes from "mailer" when received by
gmail. Is it possible (i.e. some particular format) to make this more
meaningful?

What I have at the moment one of my typical mailer methods:

def updated
recipients users.collect(&:email).join(',')
from "mailer@domain.com"
subject some_subject
body <hash>
end

Whoops, by meaningful I mean, appearing in my inbox as coming from
"MyDomain.com Mailer" instead of just "mailer"

You'd write:

from 'MyDomain.com Mailer <mailer@domain.com>'

If the email sender is common to all mailer methods
you can move this "from" call to the initialize method,
so it only has to appear once.

Excellent! Just what I was looking for! :smiley:
