Possibly, but it depends on how that check is done. It really ought to be fixed by the receiving end (fixed=removed). It is perfectly normal to have separate inbound and outbound mail-servers. For instance, if you're having your email filtered by an external service such as Spamchek or Messagelabs. A check on inbound mail that says it must be sent by the MX listed for the sending domain is really only going to hurt the receiving end. I personally wouldn't do anything to try to fix it from my side. /Per -- Per Jessen, Zürich (14.2°C) -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
