Hi,

Installed wordpress on a Linux server. The problem is it sends emails from the apache user account. In the mail log, it says

from=apache

host=apache@localhost

the local mailer server doesn't allow emails sent from apache user.

How do I solve this problem.

Many thanks,

supermoto

Install a plugin to force WordPress to use SMTP instead of the PHP mail() function:
