First off your subject line is useless and pretty much guarantee's that no one here will help you. The subject field is intended to provide info regarding your problem, hence the designation "subject" Your post itself is ambiguous. You have not provided any information about what mail system you are using ie. postfix,sendmail. Check out the link below it will help you BIGTIME. It helped me for sure.
