  Subject: Changing who the email is From

Is there a way to change who the Email is from in outgoing emails, I got this reply from my ISP.

"You need to make sure that you provide a FROM email address witin your script, and that the email address you use exists as a pop3 account on the mail server."

Yes, follow steps below.

1. In the bizmail.cgi file update the line:
$sendto{"1"} = "mail\@yourdomain.com";

Replace: mail\@yourdomain.com with your actual email. Make sure you remember the \ before the @ sign.

2. on the form set:
<input type="hidden" name="sendto" value="1">

And you should be all set. There is even more information in the readme.txt file.

Thanks for your reply.
But I think you misunderstood my question. As I understand it the above will change the address which the email is sent to. What I want do do is put a from field in the email,which is an pop3 email owned by myself.

For example I want the email to go to Danny@buildsure.co.uk but to be from forminfo@buildsure.co.uk.

I've got a feeling that it is something in sendmail.cgi which need to be changed.

Well yes, if using sendmail, you could do this.

1. open sendmail.cgi
2. Go to line 8 of this file then type:
$SENDTOTHIS = "forminfo\@buildsure.co.uk";

3. Then hit enter, that should be the only code on line 8.

4. Then go to what is now line 17.
and replace the line:
print MAIL "From: $formdata{'email'}\n";

#WITH
print MAIL "From: $SENDTOTHIS\n";

4. Re upload sendmail.cgi AND YOU ARE SET. just make sure you do it exactly as show. Also make sure you remember the \ befor the @ in your email.

Thanks for your help Seth, but it is still not working.

I've a feeling it's down to my ISP.
The script is writing the info to the data file but not doing any posting of emails.

I will get my ISP to check it out.

Cheers
