Allow customisation of List Owner email
When you make someone owner of a list, we need to be able to know what is sent to them and be able to customise this notice. The invite system allows customisation of part of the message (I have a separate request in here to allow full customisation and to be able to set a different default text), and the list owner alerts should also be customisable - both by setting a new default in an admin console, and on the fly when a particular list is given an owner.
We do intend to investigate the introduction of a dictionary tool which would enable configuration of local messages. This will be reviewed and prioritised following the completion of the Db re-architecture but is not a current priority

We have had exactly the same experience with academics suspecting these messages are spam, so being able to customise wording would be great.
Spoofing the email address would also be useful. Our LMS and Discovery vendors are both able to do this, so it would seem to be standard practice for SAAS systems.

This feature would be very useful to us. We've had several issues with users incorrectly identifying emails from Talis as spam, and being able to customise the wording would help with that a great deal.
We'd also be keen to change the reply email address to something specific to our institution, rather than firstname.lastname@example.org.
