The e-commerce.

sendmail from


Recommended Posts

I can not get os commerce to send mail as any other user then httpd. We have httpd@localhost blocked due to spam problems. Usually within php scripts i can change the mail code to mail("etc","etc","etc","etc", "-f youremail@whatever.com");

and emails will be sent as the user specified. Is there any way to do this in oscommerce? No matter what the owner/from-mail strings are in the admin configuration it still sends as httpd. Here is a snipit from my maillog file.


Sep 12 09:25:33 web6 sendmail[97850]: j8CDPX0Z097850: to="Marysue Wright" <real@email.address>, ctladdr=httpd (398/398),

delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30300, relay=[] [], dsn=5.0.0, stat=Service unavailable



It gets service unavailable because of it being blocked. the ctladdr= should be the email address that I specified but it does not work. Any help would be appreciated. This is on a freebsd box in a shared webhosting environment.
