By default, your server’s automated messages will be sent from email@example.com.
To customize your default sender address:
- Log in to the WHM by going to yourdomain.com/whm in a browser. Replace yourdomain.com with your domain.
- Once you get to the login page, enter your username and password.
- Username will be root.
- Password will be the root password for your server.
- If you see the Feature Showcase page, scroll to the bottom and click the Exit to WHM button.
- Once in the WHM, look for the Software section and select MultiPHP INI Editor from the list.
- On the MultiPHP INI Editor page, navigate to Editor Mode and select a PHP version from the drop-down.
- In the editor, modify the sendmail_path value.
For example, if you want your default sender address to be firstname.lastname@example.org, modify the value to be:
/usr/sbin/sendmail –t –I –f’email@example.com’
- Click Save.
