    Hi, I noticed that each time an email was sent from Horde webmail, the client IP address from where the user connected was added to the mail headers. This does not happen when an email is sent from roundcube webmail.

    Are they any ways to prevent it?

    thank you.

    Hello :)

    This is normal if you are sending from an email client on your home computer or using Horde/SquirrelMail. The information is included by the email client you are using to send the email. For example, you will notice the same behavior when using Horde and SquirrelMail, however Roundcube will not display the sender's IP address in the message header. It's important to keep in mind that a client must send it's own Domain in the Helo/EHLO command per RFC requirements. If you remove this information completely, most mail servers will mark the messages as SPAM. You may need to consider using a VPN for email purposes to avoid revealing the source of the emails.

    Thank you.
