Bad Return-Path anonymous@hostname sent through scripts...

    Hi there,

    Whenever an email is sent through a script ( perl or php ) the Return-Path is set to anonymous@hostname. I know that mail() in php requires the Return-Path argument, otherwise sendmail will then add the anonymous@hostname it self

    Is there anyway to control what email address is written in there by sendmail ( qmail ) ?

    Is there a way to set default mail() Return-Path to match the from address ?

    Or is the only way to fix this behavior is by having my customers coding properly ?

    You can try calling sendmail in your script using

    /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -fyouraddress@whatever

    If that does not work try

    /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -fyouraddress@whatever -Fyouraddress@whatever

    Make sure to use the correct path to sendmail and change youraddress@whatever to the return "From" address.

    Hope that helps.
