    Problem with having this option on is that it tries to rewrite your mailservers hostname EG root.mydomain.com when delivering messages from root. Shouldnt it only be trying to rewrite messages headers that a considered email addresses? eg user@*?

    Hello @gotroot

    Essentially $user@hostname.tld is, in fact, a valid email the default cPanel user for the account is considered a valid email address. When sending mail via a script this is the expected behavior as it's essentially being sent as the PHP user which is the $user@hostname.tld address.


    Thanks!
