I just created a feature request asking for the ability to change the envelope FROM as well as the existing To addresses (Waiting for moderation at the moment).............. look for "Extended Edit System Mail Preferences" if it gets approved. :-D

Hello,

I encourage anyone seeking this functionality to vote and add feedback to the following feature request:

Send cPanel Notifications via Authenticated SMTP Connection

One potential workaround for now is to setup an email account under an existing domain name through cPanel, and set the forwarding address for notifications to that new email account in "WHM >> Edit System Mail Preferences". Then, setup a forwarder or filter for the newly created email account to direct the notifications to the preferred remote email address (e.g. Gmail).

Thank you.

Could you just set up a separate DNS zone for your hostname, then add SPF and DKIM records to it? Your emails would then pass both SPF and DKIM checks and shouldn't end up in the spam folder.

That may work in some cases (depending on the remote mail server's policies), but it also involves unsupported workarounds:

DKIM for main server hostname

Thank you.

The workaround suddenly stopped working for me with Gmail today, even though I still have a DNS record for my host with accurate SPF and DKIM records, so I don't suggest this anymore... Both SPF and DKIM tests show they failed in the message source at Gmail, and the email went to the spam folder.
