    Whenever an email is returned to a client, the email address that it said it was sent from was userid@servername.mydomain.com.

    Can somebody tell me if there's a way to change it so it will show up as userid@theirdomain.com?

    How are these emails being sent? SMTP, PHP, Perl/CGI? Are you running suexec or phpsuexec? Which header are you referring to?

    Here's an example of what is showing up in /var/log/exim/mainlog. It shows up a lot and I'm wondering if it's just the user checking their email??

    2003-08-15 15:11:10 19njyg-000A3Q-EB <= login@servername.mydomain.com U=login P=local-bsmtp S=6216 id=E19njyg-000A2y-7d@servername.mydomain.com

    This is part of what was returned to a client when their email bounced (which was due to an insecure FormMail.cgi script):

    Return-path: <>
    Envelope-to: login@servername.mydomain.com
    Delivery-date: Tue, 12 Aug 2003 21:28:02 -0400
    Received: from mailnull by servername.mydomain.com with local (Exim 4.20)
    id 19mkQk-0002lI-1j
    for login@servername.mydomain.com; Tue, 12 Aug 2003 21:28:02 -0400
    X-Failed-Recipients: usersaddress@www.domain.com,

    I'd appreciate it if you could let me know if it's possible to replace servername.mydomain.com with theclientsdomain.com. I would think there has to be a way to do this because if I had resellers, all their clients would see my domain.

    I am running suexec but not phpsuexec.

    I too saw this starting to happen since about two months ago. I am not sure if it is because of Exim 4 or our installation of Phpsuexec. It would appear as if all e-mail sent by a script, e.g. a PHP script and also Webmail, has a return address of username@hostname.com.

    My money is on it being due to Phpsuexec.

    I dont' have phpsuexec enabled on the server so I don't think it has something to do with that. :)
