Hi,
    I am using php script for sending mail and i have code like:

                     $mailHeaders  = "MIME-Version: 1.0\n";
               $mailHeaders .= 'reply-to: <my-company-name>' . "\r\n";
                  $mailHeaders .= 'To: name1Tyagi <xx@exxx.com>, name2 <xxx@xxxx.in>' . "\r\n";
                  $mailHeaders .= 'Cc: cccc@ccc.com' . "\r\n";
                  $mailHeaders="From: <my-company-name>\nContent-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1";
                 mail($mail_to,$mail_subject,$msg,$mailHeaders);

 Mail is going fine but i am geeting some extra header in mail like:

        reply-to      <my-company-name>@<server-name>,
                           <my-company-name>@<server-name>,
                          <my-company-name>@<server-name>       
      to            xxxx@xxxx.in       
      date            20 Nov 2007 12:05:16 -0600       
      subject            <subject>       
      mailed-by            <server-name>

  I don,t want the <server-name> in my mail header ...i don't know why it is being added. i m not mentioned it in my code
  note: <server-name> is the linux serve name or host provider ..yess our linux server hosted by this name(server-name)
   please reply ASAP
Thankyou

Hi,

Try calling your mail function like this...
<?php
 
// Where email@domain.com is the email address you are sending from
mail($mail_to,$mail_subject,$msg,$mailHeaders,"-femail@domain.com");
 
?>

Open in new window

Out of curiosity, why do you not want your server name in the header?

That's how the receiving email server can validate the emails origin, so that it doesn't think it's spam.
