Hey!

I have a mail server, which I'd like to use for mailing lists (and other purposes).
I'm relaying through gmail's smtp. And here is the problem: when I send a subsciption letter, gmail changes the "from" mail address. So the subscription confirmation comes to the gmail address.

So how to subscribe to the gentoo lists? I don't want to change anything on my config now, so I'd like another way to subscribing.

Thanks

You should have on your Gentoo box a simple send only smtp client that follows a minimal sendmail syntax. You could use this to send your subscription emails and make the from address anything you want. See
Code:
man ssmtp
