    Hi there,

    The backend of our database, allows staffers to send emails to listed people. Up until a few weeks ago, returned mail was being returned to the email accounts of the appropriate staffer (depending on which category the email was sent from). About a week or so ago, I noticed the returned mail was arriving in the email address set up for nobody. I have since turned on PHP suEXEC and turned off email being sent from 'nobody.' But now I notice regardless of who is sending these emails, the return-path is now <thefanli@server1.thefanlistings.org> and returned mail is going to the main user mail account. Is there anyway that I can change this so that returned mail goes to the appropriate sender?

    Below is a copy of the headers of a returned message:

    *****************************************************************************
    Return-path: <thefanli@server1.thefanlistings.org>
    Received: from thefanli by server1.thefanlistings.org with local (Exim 4.42)
    id 1C5Awf-0000kS-6I

    *****************************************************************************

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    I should have mentioned that the script isn't using sendmail. It's using PHP's mail function. :eek:

    A quick google search found some excellent discussion about setting return-path with php's mail function, here:

    Good luck,
