Lightbulb Fix for X-Authentication-Warning


All emails sent from my server via php programs such as vBulletin or SquirrelMail would have the following in the message header:

X-Authentication-Warning: server1.mysite.com: apache set sender to webmaster@mysite.com using -f
This was causing some spam blockers to reject mail from my server.


All you have to do is make apache a trusted user on your server.

Edit this file:

add apache to the list.

I'm using Postfix but this fix should work for Sendmail, too.

Well, just a question on this....I use postfix on debian etch with courier and do not have the folder mail or the file trusted-users...am I missing something or does this fix belong to another config?
