Those emails should be sent by

But unfortunately they are sent via

Question: How to make sure that all emails are generated by the domain email? (we switched to SMTP server as inmotion support recommended, still not fixed)

Hello Hasnain,

Thank you for your question. The best way to do this depends how your website is coded:

In this guide we show you a successful example of how to code a Basic PHP mail() Function to send emails from a form.

Alternately, you could also use phpMailer to send mail through PHP.

If you are using a specific CMS, such as Wordpress, Joomla or Concrete5, there are typically plugins, or an area in the dashboard to set that up. Let us know if you are using a CMS, and we can provide a more specific answer.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
