Mail from 'nobody'  (See more user questions)

Hi Pete.

Looks like you will need to ask the host/server admin about it, or use a
different email address/service that doesn't reject the Sender: header that
your email server is putting in.

That's what appears to be happening, your email server is making the Sender:
header with "nobody" in it, and your email service spam filter is rejecting
it for that reason. Can't you configure the receiving email server to
accept it...put it in a whitelist?

To put it another way, the email is being sent ok, it's the receiving end
that's rejecting it. Maybe better to look at the receiving end?

Best wishes.
