I think i could not express my problem, let me try again.

The mail server on which i have configured Sqmail has many domains and is running sendmail.

Now the problem is say if there is a mail id info@xyz.com and its username is info and there is another domain on the server called abc.com and even this needs a mail id info@abc.com, for this mail id i cannot set info as the username info is given to another mail id (info@xyz.com). So for this mail id (info@abc.com) i set a username like abcinfo. Now when i logon with abcinfo and send a mail to someone using Sqmail, the receiver of the mail gets the sender address as abcinfo@abc.com whereas it should be info@abc.com.

The reason for this problem i feel is that Sqmail takes the login name as the email id.

I guess my problem can be fixed if i can add another field at the login promtp called " Email ID " and make compose code to take data in this field as the sender's email address instead of the username. I tried doing this, but i am not good at PHP and it was too much for me.

Can anyone help me ?
Hope i could express my problem.

Thanking you all.
