If you want DirectAdmin to send emails from admin@domain.com instead of admin@hostname.domain.com. Here is how you can do it.

Enhanced Skin

First of all connect to DirectAdmin as admin. Then:

  • Click " List Administrators " if you want to change email for an admin, or click " List Resellers " if you want to change email for a reseller.
  • Select an user and click on its name , e.g. admin.
  • Click the right button with " admin’s User Data " for the admin.
  • Scroll the page down to the its middle and find a row with " E-Mail "
  • Change the email address and click “Save E-mail” button.

Here you can see a picture on how it should look like in the Enhanced skin of the panel:

That’s it.

Evolution Skin

Using SSH

A user’s email is stored in a line email= of user.conf and ticket.conf . For admin it will be:

/usr/local/directadmin/data/users/poralix/admin/user.conf

To change do the following (as root in SSH):

cd /usr/local/directadmin/data/users/admin/ vi user.conf

Find a line beginning with email= and change it, save the file.

Do the same with ticket.conf.

That’s it.
