The additional_parameters parameter can be used to pass an additional parameter to the 
program configured to use when sending mail using the sendmail_path configuration 
setting. For example, this can be used to set the envelope sender address when using 
sendmail. You may need to add the user that your web server runs as to your sendmail 
configuration to prevent a 'X-Warning' header from being added to the message when you 
set the envelope sender using this method. 

Example 375. Sending mail with extra headers and setting an additional command line 
mail("[EMAIL PROTECTED]", "the subject", $message,
    "From: webmaster@$SERVER_NAME", -fwebmaster@$SERVER_NAME);

Subject: RE: [PHP] php mail()

Hey do you guys know how to correct this problem with sending email?

A custumer uses mail() to send the email and it isn't deliverable. So the
message bounces. But since the local sendmail sent the email it thus bounces
to root's mailbox instead of say the replyto address. Anyone know how to
correct it so that it sends the bounces to the person sending it? This is on
a virtual host machine with hundreds of domains.

Thank you,
