Email display not correct on Solaris 10

Hi Everyone,

Can someone possibly point me in the direction?

When I execute command echo "hello" | sendmail -v

I recived an email as expected except the From: NAME is incorrect. The server name is correct. It should read "From: TESTBOX1 []"

actual email:
From: app box []
Sent: Monday, April 02, 2012 2:06 PM


I looked through the settings on and I don't see any references to the actual from display name.

Is this a setting on the unix side or should I be looking to the exchange/email folks? This box is in a global AD.

Thank you

Take a look at the following post

When i look at:

============ SYSTEM IDENTITY (after readcf) ============
(short domain name) $w = DEVDB
(canonical domain name) $j = DEVDB.<domain name>
(subdomain name) $m = <domain name>
(node name) $k = DEVDB

All appears as expected. That' s why i'm not sure where the name is coming from and I may suspect it has to do with the AD setup and not actually the unix box itself.

Yes, it could also be in you PC's Local Address Book or in the Global Address Book. Have a look at the email header to see if the string is actually in the email.

Also see the -F parameter to the sendmail command.
