Full Version: Can't send user emails b/c of sender address

So I've ALMOST worked out all my email issues. But one still remains. When I send an email to a member via their profile page under Contact Details, it doesn't work because --as my host provider's support tech explained-- the sender email must use the same domain name as the site. But the sender is being set to the email address of whichever member is sending the email.

How do I fix this?
what is your mail function, php or SMTP?

I found this:, and that would have solved my problem but the FAQ appears to be out of date b/c that line doesn't seem to be in functions.php any more.
