    Hello,

    Just to be sure that the option "Prevent the user 'nobody' from sending out mail to remote addresses: Will this block all php scripts that send email using php for the email sender?

    And sendmail too?

    Like phpbb and inkovision?

    Or is it just some scripts that send out email as "nobody"

    Is there a way to disable this per domain or vise versa?

    Thanks,

    -Charles

    It prevents any mail from being sent out from user nobody (e.g. if your not running phpsuexec that would mean any mail from php scripts) as far as i know it is not possible to do it on a per domain basis

    So you think if I have the phpsuexec mod installed, php can send emails with this option on?

    Thanks..............:D

    if i enable this, then would i be correct in thinking that the only way for a script to send out mail to a remote email addy is if a real user is used by the script to send the mail ?

    in other words, the outgoing email would be sent by "support@mysite.com" with user/pass/smtp etc ?

    i'd like to enable this but don't want to block scripts from sending to remote email addresses

    thanks

    was the closest so far that i've found

    wanted to understand if using a real user to send mail is the key to enabling the prevent-nobody feature, before triggering this feature
