You can configure email-related options in the control panel, under 'Sending e-mail'. You probably have 'webtrees' as Sender name there?

What exactly is the email address you're seeing in those emails? Is it not 'This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.', as configured in the settings?

Or is this about emails from users?

He will be seeing this: webtrees <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>

It's the webtrees bit he wants to change.

Thanks - now I get it. That name is hard-coded currently and there is no configuration option to change it. You'd have to change it directly in php, here .
