Specify E-Mail Envelope Sender

$email_esender address_part [address_part ...]

This command specifies the default "envelope sender" for e-mail that is to be sent from the system itself rather than from any specific client or user.  For example:

E-mail sent from Job Administration to notify job results

E-mail sent from a fax-to-email application with received faxes as attachments

Any e-mail sent which omits an $email_esender command in the FS file

The syntax for this command is the same as the $email_esender FS file command.

This command will be inserted into FAXFACTS.CFG during e-mail configuration using EMSETUP.  So if you manually change the command in the CFG file, it does not affect the address(es) used for automatic system notifications, which remain as set in EMSETUP.  Also if you run EMSETUP again, it will update the value in the CFG file from its then-current settings.

The 'envelope sender' is the address used, after logging in to a remote MTA, on the "MAIL FROM:" SMTP command. As such, it does not normally appear in the e-mail body presented to the recipient by a mail client.  However if no CopiaFacts $email_from command is present then an $email_esender command will also supply the "from" address which the recipient will see.

If you are operating a service bureau sending e-mails for a number of clients, it is recommended that you do not use this command and instead use $email_esender commands in the FS files.  Otherwise your whole domain may be blacklisted if a recipient reports that one of your clients is sending unsolicited commercial e-mail.
