Email access question


#1

I should probably email support about this one but…

I’m a newbie with PHP and I set up some automatic mailing stuff for my website using the PHP mail command and did not include a From header. The email address that ended up being used was @compton.dreamhost.com. Is there any way that I can check this email address as I’ve had it set up this way for a few months and I’d like to be able to check responses to emails sent from that account?

BTW, I did change it so that a checkable email address is used for the From header now but I’d still like to be able to at least see if I’ve gotten mail at the other address.

Thanks!

Log into your account using SSH (or Telnet) and try the ‘mail’ or ‘pine’ command. Mail will give you a list, and Pine is a text-based mail reader.
