Hi Everyone,
Just a quick question (hopefully!).

I noticed that we hadn't received any system emails from one of our servers for quite a while, so decided to have a look around to see what I could find.

I discovered the all system emails were being sent from [email protected]

And as such were causing the following error:

[email protected] R=localuser T=local_delivery defer (-29): User 0 set for local_delivery transport is on the never_users list
This is obviously because root is on the never_users list in the Exim config, and removing this would no doubt fix the issue.

BUT, should the system emails be coming from [email protected] in the first place. On all other servers the system mails come from [email protected]

So my question is, how can I change the system email from address? Or would I just be better removing root from the never_users list?

Thanks in advance.
