I can fix that easily (let me know if you have already done it), by 
default we use the server's name. I'm going to add a configuration variable.

It should use the $CDASH_EMAIL_FROM from the config.php file.

What do you mean by 'Continuous only'?
Note that CDash only sends email if the errors/warnings or test failings 
are new. That means that if you checkin something and it's not producing 
any new errors then CDash won't send an email.

> 3) viewBuildError.php generates invalid CVS/SVN Trac URLs.

That's great. Thanks!
