My wife has set up MAMP on our mac, and is developing a website locally.
She recently installed FORMBUILDER, and is having trouble receiving emails on the domain she has set up. I have a hunch this is because we dont have EMAIL set up correctly on the LOCALHOST, and the formbuilder has no idea how to send an email properly. The "From" addresses are not valid, and I think our domain server just rejects them. I have a hunch that GMAIL and YAHOO are okay with them, and thats why we receive them on those accounts.
My question is......HOW ON EARTH can formbuilder successfully send emails when it has no knowledge of any email server? In other words, what server is used to send the actual email?
As you can see in the email header I received below---its somehow using my LOCAL IMAC setting to send the email. (Which make NO SENSE) I dont have any SMTP services set up!!! I am MYSTIFIED how an actual email gets sent out successfully.
Thanks for any insight on what may be going on.
