Found it:
./src/base/preferences.cpp: return value("Preferences/MailNotification/sender", "").toString();

Changing this doesn't affect my compiled version, it seems that I have to re-compile it just to change this mail address.

This feature exists in the GUI and will be added to the WebUI in #9752. In the mean time, you can change it by modifying your qbittorrent.conf file. This config file is read on application startup, whereas any changes to .cpp files will need to be recompiled.

Cheers. Reason this bothered me so much was that my smtp server was rejecting all outgoing messages just because of this mail address.
