Hi,

I've been using mutt to read my email. My outgoing email is tagged as originating from myusername@web529.webfaction.com

Often my email is flagged as spam by the recipients because it originates from this address. Can I set up my own sendmail so that my email will originate from my domain?

Thanks, Ethan

Have you tried specifying a real address in your mailing script via the headers? We have some basic samples of how to do that here,
