At some point of time it was possible to set the Emission email address field value to this format in administration.

I haven't tried recently, could you?

I tried to use AppName<> as Emission email address, but it doesn't work.

Please note that Redmine is an Open Source project, developed by individual volunteers. There is no formal agenda or schedule for features, aside from the information on the issues in this tracker, so there is no actual answer to your question.

The best way to get a certain feature implemented is to (a) develop it yourself or (b) pay a Redmine company/professional to develop it for you. In any case, please consider contributing a patch here on redmine.org afterwards, so that the community can benefit from it as well.

This does work in 3.1.0.

You can set the value like "AppName <>" to the "Emission email address" setting. The current versions of Redmine officially support the format: source:tags/4.0.1/test/unit/mailer_test.rb#L243

I would say this is a workaround, it's confusing for users to enter AppName together with email, in all email client configurations/settings it's logical to have sender name, and sender email address (which is used as replyTo address).

I would suggest to create additional field called: Emission email sender name:
