I’m not sure if this is an issue for DreamHost or Google…
I use Google Apps for my email, with accounts linked to domains hosted at DreamHost.
I have just received an email that has the following in its header:
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Gary Jones)
Well, that’s clearly not right; I’m the recipient, not the sender. As a result, my own name now appears in the “From” column in my Inbox, making my Inbox confusing. It also introduces incorrect identifying text when including a quote in a reply.
Note that the sender used my email address as displayed on my website, and this email address is “info@” followed by my own domain name, which is completely different to greengoblin.dreamhost.com (even though that’s the server where I host my domain).
Any ideas why this is happening and how to stop it?
