I think Bo is on holidays, so I'm posting this workaround in case anyone
else needs it.
With CVSMailer using the current stable CVSNT build (2.5.01.1927), there
is a minor issue with the $USER variable which causes the "from" address
never to be filled in properly if the username has a backslash in it
(e.g. MyDomain\UserName). There are a couple workarounds you can use:
1) Double up on the user file entries. For every user definition you
have with a \ in the name, create an identical entry without the \ in
it, like so:
MyDomain\UserName:"User Name <user.name at domain.com>"
MyDomainUserName:"User Name <user.name at domain.com>"
2) If you have primarily just 1 domain your users are in, then set that
as your default domain in CVSNT. That will remove the domain name from
the user strings (unverified since my users are in 3 domains).
