    Others know a lot more about email than me, and I don't know if this your
    system is Windows or *x, but quite likely the mail is sent with the
    identity of the web server.

    We had this problem using the mail() function at Experthost, as we could
    not track the bounces, they went back to sendmail's "nobody" account, and
    the ones we originated could not be identified.

    This isn't an answer, more a musing on what could be happening.

    Default AOL Email client

    I am using php mail and setting all my $headers info to show From:, To:,
    etc.
    It work perfectly on my computer. I use MS Outlook.
    I am doing this for a client who received his email via his aol account.
    When he receives the email, the email comes in with "Unknown Sender".

    Is there issues with this? Do I need to so something different for AOL email
    to receive this information properly?

    Thanks.

    What does your call to mail() look like? How are you formatting you
    headers?
