      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Current Situation
      One defined email address has to be configured as "From Address" when sending email notifications (on Admin Console -> Mailserver). All notification emails are sent from this address. When recipient "blindly" replies to this email, it is sent to the defined address rather than to the modifier causing the notfication to be sent.

      Desired Situation
      On general Mailserver configuration, the variable ${email} is available for "From Address", just as it is available for "From Name":
      http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Configuring+a+Server+for+Outgoing+Mail
      Meaning: Emails should be sent from the address of the modifier. In this case, the recpient will directly contact the modifier when replying to the notification email.
