| This is regarding XMail sendmail binary's extended sender -F flag. Can anyone please tell what is this about. If i use:
echo "test" | sendmail -email@example.com -Fdef@def.com firstname.lastname@example.org
the mail simply appears to come from email@example.com and -f flag is simply ignored. What is this -F flag exactly for?

| Extended sender means, e.g.
"Joe Black <firstname.lastname@example.org>"

|So when a extended sender -F is supplied on command line, the normal sender -f is simply ignored?

| Choose either -f or -F.
For extended sender, the syntax is:
sendmail -F "Joe Black <email@example.com>"
