This can be done, but without modifying code, not exactly as you
propose. You can make it
From: (My-Company) newsletter-confirm+7... at example.com
I.e. You can include My-Company as a comment, but not as a display name.
There are two default settings:
VERP_CONFIRM_FORMAT = '%(addr)s+%(cookie)s'
You can override these in mm_cfg.py with
VERP_CONFIRM_FORMAT = '(My-Company) %(addr)s+%(cookie)s'
VERP_CONFIRM_REGEXP = r'(?s)^\(?My-Company\)?
(watch out for wrapped lines).
You can't do
VERP_CONFIRM_FORMAT = 'My-Company <%(addr)s+%(cookie)s>'
because the @example.com is appended to that.
