How do I configure sendmail domain ?


I just installed sendmail on my droplets for WordPress. However, the emails are being sent as wordpress@[ip of the droplet].

I’m sure it’s something in the configuration file to change, but I couldn’t find what. Any idea ?

Thanks a lot !

Make sure your /etc/hosts file is set up correctly.

Change the line localhost to localhost localhost.localdomain your_host.

The command hostname will return your hostname. Now the email address should look like this: user@host

Don’t forget to restart sendmail.
