I am new to Dreamhost and have a virtual account.
my from address that people are getting is currently "email@example.com". when I use the “Mail” function in PHP in my forms. (It doesn’t matter what I set my Mail_From as because I am not on a windows server.)
I would like to customize this to my sites name/email address. I am on a virtual host so I do not have access (that i know of ) to httpd.conf which is what i figure i need to add the “-f” line everyone is talking about to.
The “-f” is the answer i recieved at other forums, on google, and from dreamhost support but none have told me the proper way to use it or where to put it as I am sure it is unique to every host, and unique to virtual and dedicated servers.
Could someone please explain the process to me.
What is the exact line I must add?
Where do I add this “-f” line ?
Do I have to use a special variation of the sendmail PHP function?
Thank you so much. Anyone…and everyone.
