    Hi,

    When someone sends an e-mail using php on a cpanel machine, exim sets the following 2 headers (along with others of course):

    Received: from x.x.x.x (EHLO host.mydomain.com) (x.x.x.x) by mta151.mail.dcn.yahoo.com with SMTP; Wed, 24 Sep 2005 10:29:04 -0700

    Received: from <O/S User> by host.mydomain.com with local (Exim 4.52) id 3ABiAO-00019o-KL for yahoouser@yahoo.com; Thu, 27 Oct 2005 13:29:03 +0300

    Here, the <O/S User> is picked up from the operation system, and it is the user that owns the process, which is the php process that initiates sending out this e-mail.

    Is there a way to configure exim/cpanel/php such that, it won't pick up the owner of that process for this header, but a specific user that I explicitly specify through configuration?

    Thanks...

    Go on, have a guess
    You would have to manipulate how ti generates the Received headers. You'll be breaking the RFC's of course, but you should have a look over at www.exim.org for the received_header_text setting.
