I'm getting strange email errors on User Registration, when a user creates an account on my website, it emails them a link to activate their account, however, its started showing errors at the top of the email as shown below. I had everything working fine, emails going out, now i get these errors and Im not sure what I have changed to cause this. I did install the Honeypot module and Captua module last night (also have User Registration Password), but Im sure I tested afterwards and it was working fine. Any ideas? I have changed the email addresses below to make them anonymous.

This was resolved by setting up a '[email protected]' with my host, and setting this to my email address under Configuration/Site Information, and also under the settings for the Trigger rule I set to send an email when a user is created.
