    I've searched the forums here, at ev1, at theplanet, google, and yahoo. I've seen this question asked several times, but it goes ignored most times, and the 2 fixes that I have found that have been posted, don't work.

    The problem is, FrontPage forms, when submitted, send out as "From: username@host.servername.com"

    I've already nuked and reinstalled the extensions, done /scripts/updatefrontpage and /scripts/fixfrontpageperm to no avail. In the properties of the form itself, the "Reply-to line" IS specified and the box is checked, but still, it comes in as "From: username@host.servername.com".

    I have followed this fix:
    http://forums.ev1servers.net/showthread.php?t=39293&highlight=frontpage+forms

    Edit /usr/local/frontpage/[customer's domain name]:80.cnf

    Add or otherwise edit the following fields:

    mailsender: [PUT IN REPLY-TO EMAIL ADDRESS]
    smtphost: [PUT IN IP ADDRESS OF MAIL SERVER
    mailreplyto:[PUT IN REPLY-TO EMAIL ADDRESS]

    This doesn't work either.

    My customer seems to have some sort of mental block (like most frontpage users) and can't understand cgiemail or the formmail clone.

    I can't find a fix for this. Is anyone else having this problem? If so, is there something that can be done about it?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    a customer today complained that the From: on their FP form has reverted back to user@host.servername.com. I am looking at the :80.cnf file in /usr/local/frontpage and noticed that the :80 file is owned by root, but the :443.cnf is owned by his username.

    elitewebninja, can you corroborate this?

    I noticed that several other :80.conf files for other domains also owned by root, but seemingly randomly..? Weird.

    Hey elitewebninja,

    I figured it out, in /usr/local/frontpage/[customer's domain name]:80.cnf
    you need to comment out the line

    sendmailcommand:/usr/sbin/sendmail

    and then it will only use the directive below instead:

    mailsender:webmaster@domain.com

    Hope this helps. Cheers :)

    Is that all you did? Everytime I do that, the front page forms error out.

    Any additional info would be appreciated.

    Thanks
