I am looking for a way to change my Email Return Path.

Currently it is set at > [email protected]; on behalf of; [email protected]

I wish to change it from that to just my domain > [email protected] or @domain

I am currently using a version of cPanel that is provided by my Hosting Providers cPanel Accelerated 2 and i have no virtual server.

Can anyone direct me how to change the return path ??

Thanks

Dave

This isn't done on the server, it's done in your email client. You simply change the FROM address. Keep in mind that your from address has to be a full, valid email address.
Are you able to tell me how as ive exhausted every menu option within my cpanel and found nothing :)

Are you speaking of this setting I wonder?
Set SMTP Sender: headers - cPanel Documentation

This option allows you to set the Sender: header as "-f flag passed to sendmail" when a mail sender changes.

note Note: The default setting is Off.

note Note: If you set this option to Off, Microsoft® Outlook will not add an "On behalf of" header. This may limit your ability to track abuse of the mail system.
You might want to speak with your Hosting Provider about this, if you don't have access to WHM.

Because cPanel is not your mail client. A mail client is someting like Outlook, Thunderbird, webmail, etc. If you're sending from an application on your server rather than a mail client, look at Infopro's suggestion, or check the mailing function that sends the emails to see what it's setting as the from value.

Thanks for your help guys

However after a lengthy chat with a Support Rep from my host it seems all i needed to do was to change from PHP Mail to SMTP

Seems that the headers on the email are "default" for PHP Mail but are not included on the SMTP function
