Hi mattyrob, i could be wrong but i think there is a prob with this warning
in the 'Send Email From' dropdown, there are 3 'types' of choices:
- post author
- blog name
i started by using the blog name, so i would assume it checks the email settings under 'Settings -> General -> E-mail Address'. I tried setting this email to use the same as the domain, but i still get this warning,
and since i hate to see error msgs, i tried to use your suggestion, to create a user with the domain email, which 'solved' the prob (eliminated the warning), but the issue is like this:
the outgoing mail server has the hosting domain name, and is different from the incoming address which has the blog domain name..
here's a short version of the email source:
Received: from 253717.hostname.net ([xxx.xxx.xxx.xx])
From: blogname <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Reply-To: blogname <email@example.com>
so you can see that the sender (hostname mail server) is diff from the 'from/reply-to' which uses the domain name.
when i gave the new user the hosting email (outgoing), i still got the warning, and only when i used the domain (incoming) email, the warning disappeared..
i'm no email expert, but not sure if this makes much sense? is it ok to have the 'From' diff from the 'Receieved: from'?
also note that although i get this warning, the emails are working fine..
also when using the 'post author' choice, it might not make sense for many blogs as mostly users use their own email address and not the domain's? altho having this option won't hurt..
