    Server Hostname to prevend failed email to show hostname

    Hello,

    I have a server that has a hostname of terceira.mydomain.com

    When a email is returned to one of my resellers clients, it says it is from mydomain.com and not from the resellers domain, so this is not anonymous, so what can i do about this?

    Thanks.

    Go on, have a guess
    A returned email would always go back to the From address used. If the email sent was from a script then it needs to be written properly. That said, If you're referring to the email header records, then that is normal and correct behaviour of an SMTP server and is simply how it works. You cannot hide your hostname.

    When a email was returned it included the domain, and not the host domain.
