    I'm currently having problems sending email out from my server with the following error message:

    I have looked on here and google and find various options but I'm unsure as to which one to go for. I have checked with hotmail and they have no issues with my server.

    Hope someone can't point me in the right direction.

    From the error message it looks like the server settings are set to prevent mail sent as the user nobody. This is set in the WHM under Tweak Settings exactly as the error states. You would need to log into WHM as root and change the setting under Tweak Settings. If you do not have root access to the server then you would need to contact your hosting company and have them correct it.

    Hi there,

    it looks like your php isn't running in SUPHP or PHPSUEX equivalence, in short PHP running as a user/owner of the directory.

    You might need to add a rewrite to your exim advanced configuration editor to let exim rewrite the sender so that is doesn't get rejected as nobody

    ######################################################################
    # REWRITE CONFIGURATION #
    ######################################################################

    # There are no rewriting specifications in this default configuration file.

    begin rewrite

    <<Add the code into the box>>
    nobody@lsearch;/etc/localdomains "${if !eq {$header_From:}{}{$header_sender:$header_From:}fail}" Fs


    I got this code somewhere a couple of years back when i was using a non phpsuex server.
    Give it a shot and see if it works.
