Hi Dannon,

thanks for the info. I'd like to take this a small step further. I added
the variable smtp_from to universe_wsgi.ini. Then I modified the
util.send_mail in ./lib/galaxy/util/__init__.py to check if
config.smtp_from is set:

    if config.smtp_from is None:
        msg[ 'From' ] = frm
    else:
        msg[ 'From' ] = config.smtp_from

Still frm is set to the old value (galaxy-no-reply@computeserver). Can
anyone point me to the place where universe_wsgi.ini is actually parsed
and the config dictionary is filled?

Holger
