Setting envelope_from in exim [07 Sep 2010|05:31pm]

I've been bothered for a while that because my login on my machines is johnsu01, the envelope_from on my outgoing mail has been johnsu01@wjsullivan.net instead of the address I actually use (john@wjsullivan.net). This makes it impossible to unsubscribe from some mailing lists, since they look at envelope_from instead of From. I started trying to fix this in gnus, but then realized that it was easy in exim. Just open /etc/email-addresses and add something like johnsu01:john@wjsullivan.net.

Wait, did I just put my real email address on the internet? I MIGHT GET SPAM.
