The Webarchitects and Ecodissident Shared Hosting servers are configured so that the mail logs indicate which user outgoing email originates from, this is to enable the tracking of compromised accounts sending spam.

You can either use the sendmail alias or SMTP for sending outgoing email from your web hosting account. To use sendmail simply use this for the sendmail location:

/usr/sbin/sendmail

To use SMPT for outgoing email, for example using Word Press set “Send all Wordpress email via SMTP” (not php mail function) and use these settings:

SMTP host:      "127.0.0.1"
port:           25
Encryption:     No encryption 
Authentication: No Do not use SMTP authentication
