In solaris I use mailx Ėr myemail.com to send email so the from looks like itís not coming from the oracle user on the server. Iíve just started on linux using mail and I canít find out how to do the same. I canít find it in the man page or on google. Try doing a search on google for spoof email from address. Michael Never a good bet to search on "spoof"! Try using sendmail? from man sendmail (admittedly on AIX): -FFullName Sets the full name of the sender to the string provided in the FullName variable. -fName Sets the name of the from person ( the envelope sender of the mail). This address may also be used in the From: header if that header is missing during initial submission. The envelope sender address is used as the recipient for delivery status notifications and may also appear in a Return-path: header. This flag should only be used by trusted users (normally root, daemon, and uucp) or if the person you are trying to become is the same as the person you are. Otherwise, an X-Authentication-Warning header is added to the message. This link http://www.linux.com/guides/nag2/x15291.shtml , the first section says how sendmail has to be configured to allow you to do the spoofing. HTH Nigel
