    Hi,

    I just added a new addon domain and i see that the email from that domain is coming from cpanelid@hostname.xxxxxx.com I would like the email for that addon domain to come from its own email domain and not use the cpanels/hostname info. How is that done please.

    Hello,

    Are you referring to emails being sent via a script on the website or via webmail?

    If via a script on the website like a contact form, you will need to make sure you are using SMTP authentication as sending emails via a PHP script to use PHP mail will always come from the user@hostname email since its not being authenticated first with an actual mailbox.

    If you are using WordPress, there are tons of plugins out there that will make this easy to setup, example:

    Postman SMTP Mailer/Email Log
