Howto change email header in emails send from PHP

Hello, all emails, which I send from PHP mail() have the header like:

Received: from nginx by localhost with local (Exim 4.63)
(envelope-from [email protected])

How I can change the address to something like [email protected] there?

Thank You

php code:
mail(“[email protected]”,“subject”,“messagecontents”,“From:
[email protected]”);

so, headers is a php issue, and can be set in php mail function.

I am using CakePHP framework, so I set this variables:
$this->Email->from =
Configure::read(‘Site.noreplyemail’);
$this->Email->return =
Configure::read(‘Site.noreplyemail’);
$this->Email->replyTo=Configure::read(‘Site.noreplyemail’);
where Configure::read(‘Site.noreplyemail’) is the email address

But this didnt changed all the address in header. The email header is
below:

Delivered-To: [email protected]

those seems to be headers sent by your MTA, such as postfix.

set servername related parameters of postifx accordingly.

Hello!

Hey, guys, it’s not PHP list. Please stop. Thank you.

The problem is, that nginx is running under nginx user, so the email
address is [email protected], but how can I change it to
[email protected] ?

Create an alias for your MTA.: man 5 aliases

For example:

echo ‘nginx: [email protected]’ >> /etc/aliases

Reload MTA. Done.
