    Hello all.... We run a real estate system on our servers with autoresponders... no spam ..all opt in stuff... the problem is that the senders are seen as nobody@ and not the actual users email accounts ... We contacted the server techs and they said they had to enable phpsusec to change it but this exploded the system and resulted in downed servers for over a day ...

    There must be a way in exim to change this to see that the senders are set and verified instead of sending everything from nobody@ ... we're obviously having delivery issues with some isp's because of this as well.

    Any help is greatly appreciated ... We're willing to consider paid help for an expert instead of having our devs mess with it need be...

    here's a sample of what I mean ... Return-path: <support@busyagentpro.com>
    Received: from nobody by admin.busyagentpro.com with local (Exim 4.63)
    (envelope-from <support@busyagentpro.com>)

    Thanks in advance,

    There is a flag you can set on the mail command in php and a from header to hide the fact it comes from nobody

    enabling phpsuexec wont 'explode' a server, if the admin had followed the rather basic instructions it would have taken no longer than 30 mins to rebuild apache/php and reset a few folder permissions.....explode lol

    Thanks guys ... but any instructions on exactly how to set the mail commands would be greatly appreciated...

    Maybe explode was over the top ... What happened was tons of directory permissions were changed and ownership of accounts were nobody ... essentially it rendered our system unreachable for over 6 hours while our devs manually changed everything ... The server techs say phpsusec can't run on our system due to some of the custom programming that's been done so we're at a loss .... Looking for help and willing to pay for expertise in this area

    Thanks

    AFAIK, you'll either have to re-write portions of your php script to use the 5th optional parameter in the php mail function* or rewrite whatever portions of the script are choking on phpsuexec (probably a poorly written image/file upload sub-routine). I don't think there's anything you can do to the server configuration to solve this for you otherwise.

    * The 5th parameter allows you to set the sender to use instead of nobody (as well as other things) and is something along the lines of this

    mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers, "-fme@example.com");

    Since I am running a shared server with many clients who send out e-mail, is this something I can set at an individual user level?
