    Hey,

    We have a site trying to use extensions but on their forms when it sends the email the from address/sender is being set to username@server_hostname instead of what's set as the MailSender in /usr/local/frontpage/domain:80.cnf . Anybody have any ideas how to fix this? We've reinstalled the extensions through cpanel.

    THANKS!

    Frontpage extensions on linux/unix do not always work as intended. I would recommend using the form mail clone that cpanel provides

    I believe this has to do with this file:

    /usr/local/frontpage/domain.com:80.cnf


    The sender address depends on the sendmail command invoke by the cnf file.

    SendmailCommand:/usr/sbin/sendmail

    results in from cpanel-lusername@servername for the sending address

    and

    SMTPHost:mailserver.com
    MailSender:webmaster@domain.com

    results in webmaster@domain.com

    The sendmail command tends to work better with form submission that contain a good of deal of text and it allows for more than one recipient of the submitted form.


    I see both parameters in the cpanel version but I'm guessing it's defaulting to use the sendmail command.

    hope this helps!
