Check the settings in your Admin Control Panel - Home > Options > Email Options

Default Email Address: Should be the email address that you want the board to use for automated emails
Bounced Email Address: Usually left blank
Default Email Sender Name: Can be left blank (and your board name will be used) or you can manually add a short/different name here

Email Transport Method: Usually checked by default - and in some cases you'll need to check the "-f parameter" too.

If you've chosen SMTP you'll need to add the details of your SMTP server in this section.

Hope this helps.
