Automatically add post/blog author display name to email From Address

Can I automatically add the post/blog author to the email From Name?

Could I add a code to pull in the author's display name. Kinda like %title% on the settings page. So where it asks for "Notification From Sender" I could add %author% and it would just pull the name from whoever made the post as the from address name.

    Hello there @kennibc, I hope you're well today!

    I'm afraid that no, this is not possible out of the box.
    The reason for this is that put simply it would be considered as a spamming tool and would most probably be used in all the wrong ways!
    The emails are sent from your site, not the author of an article who could be totally unaware of this.

    If however you absolutely must do this, then I suppose you could hack the plugin to make it work this way... if you don't know how to do it, you can always post a new job on our Jobs Board on so that a skilled developer can create that for you!
