How to change the sender hostname in mail notifications
Posted by Sven Koester on 03 September 2007 9:23
PresSTORE sends, depending on the configuration, E-Mail notifications to a given receiver.
The sender is often set to root@localhost , where localhost is taken from the hostname command.

In order to set a different hostname, please proceed the following steps:

Edit the file
/usr/local/aw/conf/lexxsrv.8000 (on Windows hosts, that is C:\Program Files\ARCHIWARE\PresSTORE\conf\lexxsrv.8000) with a normal text editor.
At the end of file, add the following two lines:
ns_section ns/server/$server/module/utility/mail
ns_param mailSender sender_email_address

Please replace
sender_email_address with a valid E-mail sender address.
That adress will be used for notifications from the next server restart on.
