Re: Need web server recommendation


I can't do it that way.  I'm the system administrator for several Christian
sites, including fcwm.org, nazarene.ch, and wesleyan.net.  I have a half dozen
email addresses that I have to be able to place in the "From:" field, including
glen@fcwm.org, glen@nazarene.ch, GLEdwards@wesleyan.net,
support@(fcwm.org|nazarene.ch|wesleyan.net).  Any type of envelope masquerading
is out.
