Default Change the Welcome message email user

Hi, I've been able to add some more information to the welcome message that gets sent to new email users. What I'd like to know is if there is a way to change the "From" portion. I went into the welcome_email_en.txt file and changed the details on the "From:" line, but when the uses views the welcome email it has additional info "om@servername.domainname:{details that I changed in the welcome form}.

Where is the "om@servername.domainname" part coming from and can I omit that so that the end user only sees the part that I changed in the welcome.txt file?

Kevin

The welcome message can be changed in the files in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/mail/

There was a bug in 3.0.4,so you should upfate to 3.0.4.1

The from email address is set in the email message file. It has to be the first line of the file and has this format:

From: ISPConfig <postmaster@localhost.localdomain>

Hey Till,
I am on 3.0.4.1, and I have changed the welcome_email_en.txt file
from
"From: ISPConfig <postmaster@localhost.localdomain>"
to
"From: Webmail Admin <support@mydomain.com>".

Now when I create a new user the mail shows up from
"om@myservername.mydomainname:Webmail Admin <support@mydomain.com>".
What I'd like to do is remove the "om@myservername.mydomainname:" part.

Kevin

It might be that the php interpreter on your server appends the second email address automatically. Please take alook into the generated email message which is sent to the mailbox and post the complete email headers incl. the from line.
