    One question that I've had to answer a couple times this week -- on my cpanel server if
    1.) something goes wrong with a contact form, etc., sometimes someone will get mail via perl/php from nobody@server-hostname.com, and
    2.) if a mail error occurs (timeout, connection refused, etc.) sometimes the mail will bounce back from Mailer-Daemon@server-hostname.com

    On a non-cpanel host elsewhere, the errors come from nobody@their-domain.com or from mailer-daemon@their-domain.com so they instantly recognize their-domain.com

    Is that difficult or impossible to do on a cpanel server?

    Me too

    I'm having this issue intermittently, I really need it fixed as sometimes clients are having problems sending me mail (I own a web design company).

    :confused:
