[Raw Msg Headers][Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
I have been plagued with a problem with a couple of zmailer
installations that I hope that someone will have the answer.
When a message is received, it seems that zmailer is adding on
headers that indicate that the message was sent by
firstname.lastname@example.org. I beleive that this pretty much only happens
when the email is received over smtp. Sometimes, this is not really a
problem, but another site that I help out says that one of the email
clients that they use will reply to the daemon address.
Sometimes, I get two From: header lines. One that is the actual
sending address and the other is the daemon address. Below are the
headers off one of the recent messages that I have received.

Can anyone tell me what zmailer is doing (or thinking that it is
doing)? More importantly, how can I fix these sites?
Thanks in advance.
