    I have implemented the following Exim config changes:

    Code:
    local_from_check = false
    untrusted_set_sender = root
    and rewrite

    Code:
    nobody@lsearch;/etc/localdomains "${if !eq {$header_From:}{}{$header_sender:$header_From:}fail}" Fs
    cpanel@lsearch;/etc/localdomains "${if !eq {$header_From:}{}{$header_sender:$header_From:}fail}" Fs
    (fail does not have the space in it in the configuration)

    which I have read previously in threads regarding this issue. That has worked fine for quite some time. However I continually recieve bounced emails for a hosted client's subdomain.

    I am constantly seeing this in my exim_paniclog:

    Code:
    2005-02-12 14:54:48 1D04Hw-0005wh-Tp Rewrite of nobody@server1.hostingdomain.com yielded unparseable address: missing or malformed local part (expected word or "<") in address Website: Name <admin@subdomain.hosteddomain.com>
    Can anyone explain how to fix this?

    Sorry for my ignorance David, but I do not see how that addresses my question. I have the fixes that are listed in that thread in place as I stated in my original post. I do not see this problem from any other domain that I host except this subdomain and there are several domains using the forums install that the mail is being generated from. Therefore, I do not believe it to be a script problem.

    After rereading your post... Granted yours may be a little more different and may warrant a new thread.

    Well, I have determined that the problem is with a ':' in the Site's Name (PostNuke site with PNphpBB2). The php script is sending the email as "Website: Name <admin@subdomain.hosteddomain.com>". When I changed that to "Website Name <admin@subdomain.hosteddomain.com>" the error is not being logged in the exim_paniclog. Is there a work around for this that anyone knows of?
