Server :: Sendmail: Changing 'From' Address In Maillogs?

Jun 7, 2010

Is there any way where I can change the "from" address in the maillogs without
changing the envelop sender.

We have email users using smtp-auth with multiple email accounts but authenticating against single user account.So whenever a user sends mails through our server from any one of his multiple mail accounts,I want to be able to change the "From address" to the user he is authenticating against instead of the "from address" which he supplies, in the maillogs.

We have mimedefang running on our system,I tried using things like change_envelope_sender functions,but it only changed the envelope sender and did'nt change anything in the maillogs.

Server :: Getting An Error While Changing Sendmail Config File?

Nov 7, 2009

I am trying to change the configuration of sendmail so that I can relay mail through google smtp server as suggested here.

First I ran 'm4 sendmail,mc >' with the original .mc file that came with Fedora 10. There was no error.

I added the following lines.


FEATURE(`authinfo','hash /etc/mail/auth/client-info.db')dnl
define(`RELAY_MAILER_ARGS�, `TCP $h 587′)
define(`ESMTP_MAILER_ARGS�, `TCP $h 587′)

I ran ''m4 sendmail,mc >' again and got this message:

m4:/usr/share/sendmail-cf/mailer/procmail.m4:33: ERROR: end of file in argument list

I did not change anything in the procmail.m4 file. What do you think caused this error?

Server :: Sendmail Error - Rejected After DATA: Could Not Verify "From:" Header Address"

Jul 20, 2010

I have spent three days on this and am at my end so help would be greatly appreciated. I have a server running CentOS 5.5 and Sendmail 8.13.8. All works fine except for emails from Logwatch. I see this in the maillog:

Jul 20 07:49:24 ifsboss sendmail[1027]: o6K5aIc0000515:, ctladdr=<> (0/0), delay=00:13:06, xdelay=00:00:45, mailer=relay, pri=210540, [], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: 451-Rejected after DATA: could not verify "From:" header address

No matter what i have done It still fails on this. To list what I have done is plenty so I thought I'd poll you experts for possible past experience that could either confirm I am on the right track, or point me to it. If I try force the mail that is stalled in the mailq I see this:

Running /var/spool/mqueue/o6I22Exm009672 (sequence 1 of 1)

Server :: Sendmail M4 Configuration Base Directory /usr/share/sendmail-cf Was Not Found

Nov 1, 2010

I am using webmin for my daily tasks. I have fedora 13, whenever I click on ''Sendmail M4 Configuration'' or Outgoing Addresses (generics)'' I get the following error message


The Sendmail M4 configuration base directory /usr/share/sendmail-cf was not found on your system, or is not the correct directory. Maybe it has not been installed (common for packaged installs of Sendmail), or the module config is incorrect. I read documentation at, it seems that structure of directories for send mail has been changed in version sendmail-8.1.4 shipped with FC13. In webmin config module we have


Sendmail M4 base directory = /usr/share/sendmail-cf

which is not there. I did a locate / sendmail-cf on the command line, it finds nothing

Server :: Sendmail Not Reading Default ?

Apr 1, 2010

I recently modified to use a third party SMTP server to send emails. It works great. But when I run sendmail from the command line, I have to specify the -C flag and force feed it the location of my, or else it doesn't work.

So in other words, the following works great:

However, if I don't specify the -C flag, sendmail doesn't consider what's in the and barfs:

I don't run sendmail as a daemon. I'm only using it to send emails. I know my modifications of are correct because it works perfectly when I use the -C flag. I searched my disk to see if I could find another on the machine and only the one in /etc/mail came up.

Why sendmail is not reading my

I'm running Sendmail version 8.14.2 on Fedora Core 8.

General :: Change Sendmail's Sender Address?

Jun 17, 2010

We're using mutt to send out a daily email through cron. The only problem is that half the people aren't getting it, because its getting rejected as coming from an invalid address. Right now its sending out as username@localhost.localdomain.

How can I change this? I found the, which I believe previous people have been editing directly, which from what I read isn't the best way to configure sendmail.

General :: Sendmail Masquerading Email From Address?

Jul 18, 2010

I have my system set up with sendmail (going through my ISP SMTP server) but when I sent an email using sendmail it was defaulting the from address to or something similar. So I read up about masquerading [URL] and managed to get it to however I want to change USERNAME to a different value because my ISP username is different from my machine username. My aim is just to get the from address to be [URL]. This machine is only used by me so I don't need it to be different for different users if that makes things any easier...?

Slackware :: Changing Ip Address On The Fly?

Aug 20, 2010

If I need to adjust my network settings (rc.inet1.conf) on the fly, like if I need to be in the local network of a router I just bought (192.168.1.x), in order to change the subnet to the rest of my network (192.168.0.x), then I need to adjust the ip address of my slackware box. Up till now I have rewritten the rc.inet.conf file and then restarted the computer. I am almost positive that restarting is unneccesary, but I have not been successful in finding any other method. Maybe I am using the tool wrong, but I have tried using wicd to disconnect and then connect again once I change the rc.inet1.conf. I don't think it worked. I think I have also tried issuing a rc.inet1 restart. But I don't think that this changed my ip address either. How do you change your ip address on the quick without restarting your box?

Networking :: Changing The IP Address Remotely

Apr 12, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu server. To change the IP while I'm sitting in front of the computer, I would:

1. edit /etc/network/interfaces
2. ifdown eth0
3. ifup eth0

Remotely, I can do the first two no problem, but the ifup command causes some problems since the ethernet interface is no longer functioning. Is there some kind of script that can be written for this purpose? Maybe something that will check eth0 every so often and make sure it is running and bring it up if it isn't. Or else a script run with nohup?

I do not intend that changing the IP address will be a frequent occurrence, but when it needs to be done, it must be done reliably and without the possibility that the computer will no longer be reachable for more than a couple minutes or so.

Is the gateway doing something strange?

General :: Networking - Changing MAC Address In A Machine (fedora 8)

Jun 24, 2010

I am doing a test on MAC learning and for that ,I need to change my MAC address of linux machine while the interface is UP. To be more clear, consider eth1 in a fedora core 8 machine. And while the interface is UP. I am running a script which changes the MAC address from 10:1:1:1:1:1 to 50:50:50:50:50:50 (i.e 50 times MAC address is changed) . When I try to change the MAC address when the interface it UP, it gives me the following error :

siocsifhwaddr : device or resource busy

I know the way of changing the MAC address by bringing down the interface but I need to know if this can be done while the interface is UP.

Fedora Networking :: 10 DNS Information Gets Lost After Changing IP Address To Static

Feb 21, 2009

I am using Fedora 10 and when I first installed my machine, I had a DHCP assigned address to my network card. Later on I decided that I wanted to give my machine more of a server role, so I switched to static IP using the system-config-network utility. What happened after that was that I did change the IP address and routing information, but DNS information gets lost at every reboot, so I need to type it back again.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ipv6 Global Address When Changing WLAN?

Jun 23, 2011

I've two WLAN AP's with both a different IPv6 subnet. When I change from one AP to the other, my IPv6 Global address stays valid and so is the default IPv6 gateway. After a while I get another Global address from the second AP's subnet and another default IPv6 gateway for the second subnet. Both have the same metric. IPv6 connectivity is broken now. When I disable wireless on the laptop and reenable it, it flushes all IP addresses and receives new ones and connectivity is restored. Does anyone know if this is normal behaviour or should it normaly flush all the addresses when changing network? It's a bit silly to have to disable/enable wireless all the time..
