josephkola Posted November 25, 2004 Share Posted November 25, 2004 Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating it. Here's the problem. I'm having trouble sending mail to some clients. I think it has something to do with the email headers. See below. I installed the smtp contribution. First Question: During install when I get to 'YOUR DOMAIN/HOSTNAME HERE' should that be my site name (mysite.com) or my hosting company? Second Question: Shouldn't my return path be my address I'm sending from? Final Question: I think the part of the header that is "Received: from unknown (HELO mail.opentransfer.com) (192.168.66.101) by mail3.opentransfer.com with SMTP; 25 Nov 2004 04:37:12 -0000" is blocking the email from certain clients. Is this because of the line "Received From Uknown" ??? The email header is as follows: Return-Path: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Delivered-To: email@example.com Received: (qmail 10898 invoked from network); 25 Nov 2004 04:37:15 -0000 Received: from unknown (HELO mail.opentransfer.com) (192.168.66.101) by mail3.opentransfer.com with SMTP; 25 Nov 2004 04:37:12 -0000 Received: (qmail 28559 invoked from network); 25 Nov 2004 18:30:30 -0000 Received: from unknown (HELO mail2.opentransfer.com) (192.168.66.103) by mailout.opentransfer.com with SMTP; 25 Nov 2004 18:30:30 -0000 Received: (qmail 22527 invoked from network); 25 Nov 2004 04:36:00 -0000 Received: from unknown (HELO web30.opentransfer.com) (184.108.40.206) by mail2.opentransfer.com with SMTP; 25 Nov 2004 04:36:00 -0000 Received: (from httpd@localhost) by web30.opentransfer.com (8.11.6/8.11.6) id iAP4Oxs20138; Wed, 24 Nov 2004 22:24:59 -0600 Date: Wed, 24 Nov 2004 22:24:59 -0600 Message-Id: <200411250424.iAP4Oxs20138@web30.opentransfer.com> To: "Joseph Kolasinski" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: test with smtp auth From: email@example.com MIME-Version: 1.0 X-Mailer: osCommerce Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit This little problem has been holding me up for about a week now.
