Using Msmtp + gmail in Php and mail function how can I see the email address of the sender when I receive the email?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm using msmtp and gmail to send email in my php web app, on Ubuntu in localhost developing. It is described here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/33969783/phpubuntu-send-email-using-gmail-form-localhost/45125490#45125490
It works both when I send the email to me and when I receive an email. However in the latter case, i.e. when I send an email to me, I can't see the address email of the sender but I see me ,I believe because is in effect my mail server that send to me.

How could I see the email address of the sender when I receive the email?


Is there some advice or easy solution to the problem encountered?

Best greetings

Hey Nick, are you setting a "from" address when you send the email?

Also, it may help if you use placeholder values when describing the problem here. I'm not 100% sure I understand the distinctions you're trying to make (e.g., sending the email to me vs receiving an email or all the uses of "me").
