Change outgoing domain in Sendmail

Posted on 2008-11-03
Last Modified: 2013-12-18
When I send an email address I get these two lines in the header:
Received: from (localhost [])
Received: (from ali@localhost)

I did add


Hostname does display

I do want to remove those two lines and have them present my domain and my public IP.

Any hints ?

I am getting this

Received: from ( [] (may be forged))

Add an entry to /etc/hosts for mapping to to get rid of the "(may be forged)".

As for the two received headers, if you're submitting the mail locally, you're just going to get one of those. You should probably get rid of those two masquerade_as() defs and leave just one with your real domain in it.

Hi I already have that entry in hosts,

As for masquerading from what I understand




That should masquerade localhost + localhost.localdomain to rihgt ?

In my setup, I don't have any masquerade_domain entries, only the one masquerade_as one.
