Description

Name of the server is reported into From field but only between <> like this:

 Backup <admin@botolo.nethesis.it>

Most email clients don't visualize this information into email list, see attachment for more info.

The proposal could be to insert server name into:
  • subject, for example: "Backup report ERROR: botolo.nethesis.it"
    or
  • from, for example: Backup botolo.nethesis.it <>

So, this is a client configuration problem.

I disagree. The notification mail is easily searchable using the From field and it's event possible to create smart sieve filter.

Standard configuration of the most clients (gmail, thunderbird, ecc.) and it's not customizable

You can preserve the possibility of smart sieve filter adding server name to the name of the author
