User conformation e-mail help desparately needed

Tuesday 31 August 2004 10:28:22 pm - 4 replies

I am using Apache, PHP, and MysSQL on Redhat linux and I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to change the "From" in the e-mail that is sent to a user after he or she has just registered. Right now the e-mails say they are from "Apache" and I'd like it to say something different like "Webmaster", specifically, like webmaster@mysite, com.instead of
Please help!

In your site.ini.append file set the EmailSender under [MailSettings]

Thanks for your quick reply. I've tried doing what you wrote, but it has not worked. I even tried restarting apache, and sendmail multiple times in conjunction with the ini settings. Can you offer any further help? perhaps the header from an e-mail with the wrong "From"?

Thank you for all your help,

I haven't looked at the code but I suspect that this is an issue with the way the ezmail system intergrates with the local mail configuration (via the mail function I suspect).

I suspect you are using sendmail for delivery and not SMTP. I _think_ this would be an issue of the Envelope address Vs the Header address. Have you tried switching to using SMTP?

See for an explainatiopn of 'Envelope' vs 'Header' address.
