New account notification email question
An email I received notifying me of the creation of a new CAC account had a different format from what I usually see -- the from line was from LaGuardia Center for Teaching and Learning
Please see screenshots attached -- of a more typical notification I'd received in the past and this one
Any idea what is going on?

There are two different things happening here.
First one is HTML email not being used for the "New User" email notification.
I'm guessing that a new user was added from the LaGuardia site via:
Can someone confirm if a LG admin did try to add a new user in this manner?
Since WP Better Emails is not activated on the LG site or network-wide, the email would be sent in plain-text.
About the second issue regarding the email's "From" name, BuddyPress 2.5 removed its older WP mail 'From' filter:
This probably affected the email "From" name when used on sub-sites like LaGuardia. We could bring back the filter:
add_filter( 'wp_mail_from_name', 'bp_core_email_from_name_filter' );
bp_core_email_from_name_filter() is deprecated.
Update: I'm wrong. We already disable BP's "From" filter on all sites except the root site with
cac_mail_from_name_bypass(). See #2152. So BP 2.5's "From" email filter removal doesn't affect us.
However, I actually like that the "From" name displays the site that is initiating the "New User" email. It helps for debugging purposes.
Do we want to do anything here?
