 > Why is WP trying to come up with an email address at all, rather than
 using the one in 'General Settings'? The plugin
 https://wordpress.org/plugins/admin-email-as-from-address/ has been
 mentioned - but why isn't this the existing behaviour?

 My answer would be because system generated messages (like password resets
 or notifications) aren't really from the blog author, but from the
 backend. I use the aforementioned plugin and use wordpress at myblogsite.com
 for admin messages. Of course someone else may have another opinion.
