Email Issue: "From Name" field doesn't show up on received emails

Your software Digital Ocean Droplet Apache2/ubuntu 20.04
My PHP version is : 7.3
My MySQL/MariaDB version is (delete as applicable): MariaDB version 5.7
Mautic version: 3.2

Your problem
My problem is: When sending emails the “From Name” field does not show up on the emails received on the client side, Outlook mail client/ iphone mail/ Gmail web. Instead it only shows the “from email” part.

These errors are showing in the log: No errors

Steps I have tried to fix the problem: I tried sending emails from segments, single contact and also changing the name in the settings. I tried a separate email app (sendy) with the same API and that works fine. Also googled and searched the forums for the issue. Plus I thought about editing php directly as a last resort, but couldn’t find any references.

Single Contact works for me on 3.3.1 But I also noticed the same error on one of the instances. The name just wouldn’t display.

It works on an upgraded 3.3.1 instance, but doesn’t work on my 3.3.1 fresh install.

Mine is upgraded. I will try on my older test version and see how that works out!

Edit: Just checked on the 3.2.1 dev version and it’ the same issue…

Actually I just tested it on our dev version which is fresh ish and it works. So what could be an issue?

Edit: I updated the dev version 3.2.1 to 3.3.2 and the From Name stopped showing up on emails again. So must be something in the update

I opened up an issue on github and added more info if anyones interested
