Anyway you don't need to add such a header. If your username on your machine is different than with your provider it's better to add a "From:" header to your mails with the correct information. If it happens to be the same, masquerading should be sufficient. If like my ISP, your ISP's mailer isn't sound (trustworthy/reliable: e.g. doesn't return delivery errors!), you may prefer like me to send mails directly from your own box, but this also has it's problems unless you have a leased line that is. One problem is that mail that can't be delivered due to a temporary net or recipient mailer problem is left in your queue until next time you connect and senmail reawake/is awaken. I guess I should ask on a sendmail list about this to get the story straight, but with a dynamic ppp link sendmail doesn't seem to know how to determine/use the hostname for the ppp link for communicating with the recipient server. The trick I use is to just set my hostname in "sendmail.cf" to some arbitrary hostname of one of the ppp links in my ISP's pool. This works ok, except that some clever mailers give warnings to the sender (me) and the recipient (in a header) that the claimed hostname and actual hostname of the sender's machine/interface are different. > Because of this problem, my mail bounces at the servers. Which servers? You mean your provider's or recipient's? Jens ------------------------------------------------------------------- Next Technical Meeting: TBA, January, 2000. Place: Temple Univ.
