    Welkom email is sent from diradmin@server.domain.com instead of diradmin@domain.com

    Hello,

    I am new with Directadmin and after looking a lot of tuts I have found how to send correctly email from normal accounts that I create.
    But the welcome email keeps sending from diradmin@server.domain.com instead of diradmin@domain.com (so nobody receives it) and I really can not find how to resolve this issue.
    I am using exim with dkim.

    Could you give me a hand ?

    Thanks

    Login to your admin panel. Then on the right upper side click on the text "Message System".
    Now change the "Email a copy of all messages to" option to another (existing) e-mail address.

    Then in /etc/exim.conf you could add:
    local_from_check = false
    local_sender_retain = true
    untrusted_set_sender = *

    However, it's better to use the newer spamblocker exim.conf files which already contain these lines and a lot more which saves you a ton of trouble.

    Have a look at this:

    I'm sure after that everything should work fine.
    Greetings, Richard.

    better explanation of my problem

    Hi Richard, thank you for your answer,
    but I believe that it is a different issue.

    Imagine that you are making a new Administrator or reseller, etc. So when after creating it, the system (da) should send an email to the new user with the login details,etc.

    Well the problem is that is not sending it, When I check I see that from diradmin@server.domain.com << server.domain.com is my hostname and not the domain name. I believe that is not sending it because it should being sent from diradmin@domain.com (here I use domain.com instead of the real domain we are using)


    when I see in the exim mainlog I get this ( I have changed the real domain also here next )
