im running debian sarge (finally stable yay!) and using exim4 and kmail to send email for one of my email addresses out to the wide world.
the question is a minor one for configuring exim4. inparticular about outgoing emails, the second and third "Recieved:" header sections(if i may call them that)
i am wondering if there is any way to obfuscate MYHOSTNAME from the second received header line, eg:
Received: from MYHOSTNAME (ppp110-94.lns1.abca1.myisp.blah.net [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx])
and obfuscate MYUSERNAME on my PC from the third received header line, eg:
Received: from localhost ([127.0.0.1] ident=MYUSERNAME)
no i do not want perfect anonimity, i am happy for my isp details to stay there, just that my hostname and username are not terribly suitable for the recipients of the emails i want to send. (silly me - but it is funny)
exim4 is configured using (option 2?) smarthost, and relays emails through my ISPs SMTP server.
I know it is possible for mail to go out without the headers as i can make it so via telnet and cludgy SMTP commands.
Almost forgot, this is not for the email address that i got from my ISP, its for an alias/forwarder that i have sending mail my way.
thanks, and have a geeky day!
