Keep domain email address, so you’ll not facing any issue. You can change the field accordingly but best field configuration is this. But you’re free to use what ever field.
Subject – You can use customized subject here. By default NeroDev [your–subject]. Here is the way I like my subject to be. You’re free to change as you want.
