How can I change the title text on the sale email?

I always get this in my email when I make an order,

Main Website Store: New Order # 100000016

I want to change it to,

[Name of my Store]: New Order # 100000016

Is it possible? where can I change it?

Also, in the sale email content,

Thank you for your order from Main Website Store. Once your package ships we will send an email with a link to track your order. If you have any questions about your order please contact us at support@example.com or call us at Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm PST.

Your order confirmation is below. Thank you again for your business.

Where can I change all this? Especially Main Website Store?


Do not change the files in app/locale, they would be overwritten by an update.

You should use Transactional Emails, here some documentation about it: http://www.magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base/entry/customizing-transactional-emails

You can then set the subject to be: {{var store.getFrontendName()}}: New Order #{{var order.increment_id}}

  • I'm on Mangento Community edition, do I have Transactional Emails in this edition. the docu is for Magento Go. – laukok Jun 28 '14 at 23:12

You can change this in the admin under System => Manage Stores. Change the name of the store to whatever you need.
