Comment (by DJPaul):

 This filter was in BP 1.0, and looking back at the early WPMU, and some of
 the comments in WordPress' code, I can see why this filter was probably
 useful. By default, WP sends emails from "WordPress@…". BP filters it to
 "noreply@…" which may be better, but I think that's more of discussion for
 WordPress core to have.

 If a "from" header is passed to wp_mail(), probably by another plugin,
 BP's filter overrides it.

 As I've never seen a user complain about their site's emails "from"
 address change after they've installed BuddyPress, I doubt anyone would
 bat an eyelid if BP's filter was removed.
