    Hi Kerry-Anne,

    Thank you for your reply.

    That is what I thought and that was the first place I turned and of course they said it was VB.

    If anyone can give me a clue as to how to correct this on an apache server please let me know.

    Thanks again!

    Follow up -

    I looked in the ACP under Maintenance -> view PHP info and found


    APACHE_INCLUDE no value

    APACHE_TARGET no value

    Apache Version Apache/1.3.37 (Unix) mod_auth_passthrough/1.8 mod_log_bytes/1.2 mod_bwlimited/1.4 PHP/4.4.4
    FrontPage/ mod_ssl/2.8.28 OpenSSL/0.9.7a

    Apache Release 10337100

    Apache API Version 19990320


    User/Group nobody(99)/99

    Max Requests Per Child: 0 - Keep Alive: on - Max Per Connection: 100

    Timeouts Connection: 300 - Keep-Alive: 15

    Server Root /usr/local/apache

    Is this normal? If the User/Group should be changed how do I do it?

    Thank You!!

    E-mail issue: -auth_sender [email protected]

    Hi, I have been blacklisted by yahoo and while trying to get this sorted out I have noticed that the headers of the e-mails sent by VB use:
    [email protected]

    In the ACP I do have my Webmaster's Email set properly to the e-mail I want and that is used as the reply to e-mail (that's OK) but in the header I get
    [email protected]

    Here is an example of mail that has bounced back:

    nobody 99 99
    <[email protected]>
    1216702989 0
    -ident nobody
    -received_protocol local
    -body_linecount 54
    -auth_id nobody
    -auth_sender [email protected]
    [email protected]
    211P Received: from nobody by with local (Exim 4.63)

    Is "nobody" wrong? Should I be able to change this to a real e-mail address? If so, how?

    I suspect that "nobody" is a trigger to get blacklisted. Is that true?

    Thank you for any help you can provide.
