As the server admin I frequently receive emails generated by the hosted websites that have bounced. They should not bounce to me but to the website administrator - that way you'll know there is a problem.

Generally it is the home-brew software that does this because the envelope-from address is not set and defaults to the server admin. A simple explanation of what is going on is at [http://www.pobox.com/helpspot/index.php?pg=kb.page&id=260]

Some info about fixing it (for php) is at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/179014/how-to-change-envelope-from-address-using-php-mail

If your website is misbehaving I'll let you know by email and point you at this thread.
