How do I resolve the following:
"Domain of sender address www-data@lamp does not exist"

Currently all my self-generated email attempts via php script is denied with that error in /var/log/mail.log

sendmail_path =/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i -f mailer@yourdomain.com

I've changed to postfix to see if it works... same crap. vBulletin manages to send emails. But a simple <?php mail("tome@mydomain", "test", "test email"); ?> doesn't work. I've tried with and without headers. The headers include all the same headers as vBulletin does! Your change made no difference.

You really aren't giving enough information for anyone to make a good guess as to what could be going wrong. Mail routing problems can be complex, anything from a misconfigured hostname, DNS resolution problems, spam filter, etc.

A couple of questions:

What do you mean with or without headers?
How are you trying to debug this? What shows up in the logs?

Here's a tip:

apt-get install postfix webmin-postfix
Now go to the webmin web interface and see if you can configure the myhostname parameter.
