Question

Debian configuring sendmail and php mail() - cannot change from address

I am trying to set up sendmail to send from the php function mail().

I have looked through some of the questions and guides on this site, but cannot see anyone encountering my particular problem. I cannot specify the from address.

All mail seems to come from *@d1stkfactory rather than *.mydomain.

For example: <?php $to = ‘myemailaddress’; $subject = ‘What more tests’; $message = ‘Yeah, I suck at this.’; $headers = ‘From: server@mydomain.co.uk’ . “\r\n” . ‘Reply-To: server@mydomain.co.uk’; mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

The email comes through from server@d1stkfactory Any ideas?

solve… reboot de droplet server nano /etc/mail/sendmail.mc MASQUERADEAS(d1stkfactory') replace by MASQUERADEAS(YOUR DOMAIN’)

Sorry to drag up this old thread, but, what if the server has multiple domains that all post out email.

Edit the following file to change the default mail domain name <br> <br>sudo nano /etc/mailname
