envelope-from header missing

Mark, thank you for your reply.
I am not sure what could have caused that, this is a fairly simple cPanel
(Exim) + ConfigServer Mailscanner setup. No special configuration. I have
contacted ConfigServer's support first, this was their answer:

"Outbound notification from MailScanner does not have the envelope-from
field and therefore the From in MailControl is not populated. I'm afraid
there's nothing we can do from our end to resolve this issue, you'd need to
check the MailScanner newsgroup to find out if there is anything that can
be done."

I can provide Mailscanner and Exim config if that helps.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Avant.si d.o.o.
