I hope someone might have an idea on this. I'm running a Magento website on an Amazon Linux server (basically CentOS) with an Apache webserver. I also use Google Apps for managing mydomain.com's mail.
I was able to successfully set up the MX, SPF and DKIM records for the server and got them working, so that I receive a "Pass" for both SPF and DKIM when I send emails. However, I've run into a strange problem I can't seem to get past --- part of the headers for the emails I send always says:
Received: (from apache@localhost) by mydomain.com
I've searched high and low for a way to change this to use "firstname.lastname@example.org" instead, but I just can't seem to figure it out.
Among things I've tried:
- Changing the php.ini to say: /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i -f email@example.com
- Adding to mydomain.conf's virtualhost the line: ServerAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org
- Setting the Return-Path to "Yes" in the Magento backend (System -> Configuration -> Advanced -> System -> Mail Sending Settings.
I'm not sure if there's anything else that might be affecting the mail sends. If anyone has an idea it would be much appreciated, thank you!
Edit: The contents of my /etc/hosts file are as follows:
127.0.0.1 www.mydomain.com 127.0.0.1 mydomain.com 127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain
Edit 2: I thought it might help if I added the headers of the email, in case that might give some clues to what might be going on (I've changed a lot of values to keep it generalized).
