Description

This is a re-hashing of the following ticket: https://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/13847

After many years of using Django, I still get these confused. Actually, I'm not even clear on where one is used over another. At the very least, it would be nice to have the entries in the settings documentation link to one another so that people aren't running around trying to figure out why the email sender isn't changing properly.
